Best places to live in Darwin?The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of Homely.com.au. Report
Stuart park, fannie bay, larrakeyah. Close to cbd, facilities, shops. Lots of well funded public schools. Cant go wrong. If not in within your budget then further out look at leanyer or nightcliff

Stuart Park, Parap, anything 0820!
Well I can't say that I agree with the previous two posts. Having lived in one of the 'premier' suburbs (each suburb quoted above will have a price tag of in-excess of $1,000,000 for anything half decent and not needing upgrading. Which has certainly been worth it in the run up boom to Inpex starting in Darwin. All the quoted areas have nice areas within, however large areas of the quoted suburbs are problematic with itinerants, dirty, crime (B&E's) and noisy (large apartment complexes). There are some nice little spots, but you will need to be selective. The houses will sell for $1.4 million plus, for the 'nice spots' and apartments from about $650k. Depending where you will be working, suburbs such as Brinkin (above Darwin's median price for houses also), parts of Nightcliff and Rapid Creek are good. Friendly neighbourhoods include Leanyer, Anula and Nakarra. I prefer the Northern Suburbs and can't comment on the Palmerston region. Access to the airport, major shopping centre (Casuarina) and supermarkets is a breeze from Leanyer, Anula and Nakarra but a pain from the above quoted suburbs by the property agents!

Anywhere but Palmerston.
We are planning to move from Pakistan, due to the prevailing situation of unrest.I have three kids under 10, looking for an affordable place in a friendly environment, close to schools as well
