Absolutely safe. I have been living with my family for more than 2 years now. I won't be able to comment on the history of the area as I don't believe in hear and say.Primary school is best in the area and there is a reason for it. I have seen incidents in broad day light even in the City. There are other know families who have been living here long before we moved in and they didn't come across any safety concerns. You have Nepean Hospital, Western Sydney UNI , Tape , Primary School and now Even Wollies walkable. This area is going to grow immensely due to close proximity to the new Airport.
