"Neighbourly Street"

Quiet street with lots of owner occupied residences. Good neighbours who look out for each other. Lots of renovations going on. Lower part of street gets a bit of foot traffic crossing through park from Murray St.

"Noisy is an understatement"

I live in the Pease st end of Macilwraith St Manoora and I would like to make sure that anyone thinking of moving there would actually not bother. I have never lived anywhere before where almost every night at all hours there is a constant stream of loud, swearing, abusive pedestrian traffic that cut through the park to go to Murray st. I get woken every night by rude self centred people with no respect for the rights of others to sleep and feel safe in their own houses. I am looking to move because I classify this place as a completely unlivable place to be. There seems to be no police presence except when you have to call them which happens to be often.

herebedragons69 Given that you live near Pease St and Reservoir Rd I can understand that you would have traffic! Those are major transport lanes for all of Cairns. If you place your attention in a certain place then you are bound to find evidence for your beliefs. There are many good things about Manoora that I'm sure you can find if you stop focusing on a group that you have judged: "rude and self centered".
We have lived in Manoora for 5 years and never had a problem. Ours neighbors are friendly, hard working. family oriented people that are always ready to lend a hand.
catnose1 @herebedragons69 - Given that you live on Cadaga street, I can't understand why you think you have the right to disagree with Olster. I also live on the Pease st end of Macilwraith St and agree 100% with Olster. There are constantly people yelling and screaming at all hours of the night walking (because they are either drunk, or can't afford a car) up and down the street. I have had things stolen from my yard. My car has been vandalised, my mail has been stolen (I have actually caught people red handed stealing my mail) So YES, I agree with Olster, and am quite happy to also focus my attention on a group and feel quite justified in JUDGING those rude and self centered people.
choofer66 AGREE 100% In fact all of Manoora and Mooroolbool is ruled by this drug pedling, petrol sniffy alcoholics
