"A mixed bag, surrounded by fantastic facilities"

It is undeniable that Kingsford is surrounded by excellent facilities. These include: UNSW, Hospital Precinct, Quick access to Coogee (if you can find a parking spot), 6min drive to Westfield Eastgardens and brilliant public transport network at your doorstep.

However, it's a densely populated area and with that, you get a mixed bag of situations. On the upper side of Anzac Pde (closer to hospitals and Rainbow St Public) there is certainly more of a sense of safety. Still, there is a fair bit of domestic violence occurrences, loads of junkies and crazies pestering for cash on Anzac Pde and overall, not a great sense of community, as there is a lot of coming/going due to university being close-by.

Not exactly affordable for buying, but you can find yourself a bargain if rental is your option. If money wasn't an objection, I certainly WOULD NOT buy here.
