"Ipswich: Do not move there"

I lived in Ipswich for four years, Sadlier's Crossing, Boovall and One Mile. If you like finding used syringes 50 metres from your front gate, neighbours fighting in the street and attacking each other with bats, being stuck between two neighbours that feud, so they throw empty bottles across your yard at each other, blow themselves up (yes, blow themselves up with petrol), wreck shared fences, collect junk and broken down cars, so that snakes and rodents live under the wrecked bonnets, etc, high crime, hooning in the streets, then by all means move to this town that is nothing more than a centre for Brisbane City rejects.

If you like golf ball bombs being found in the local parks, by all means move to this hole.

If you like your council to leave the CBD and suburbs decay to state, that they are an absolute disgrace, then by all means move to this hell hole.

In closing I wouldn't raise a mongrel dog in Ipswich, let alone a family.
Cons
  • Nosey nieghbours
  • Hoons
  • Drugs

"One Mile is close to everything but people try to know your buisnes"

I have lived in One Mile for 7 years while the area is close to CBD the neighbourhood spirit could be better. Can't let kids play out in backyard without neighbour saying why are you playing out here. Can't talk to one lot of neighbours without another lot getting jealous. Get falsely accused by an unmedicated neighbour who constantly give insults when hubby is minding his own buisness. A lot of cats have been going missing from the area it appears that thier is a cat hater in the area as the cats just vanish don't even end up in the pound. Drug use is pretty common in the area if you don't do drugs you stand out . There are some friendly people around but unfortunatly it varies from street to street Fair street is one of the most unfriendly places I've lived at. The next street over is pretty quiet and was mostly ok. I would recommend One Mile for singles or retirees.
Pros
  • Central location with ease of access
  • Parks, Leafy streets, Golf Club, Swimming Centre
  • local few shops.post office,chemist ,news agency,doctors,Iga.takeaway.
Cons
  • Nosey nieghbours
  • Hoons
  • Drugs

"Leichhardt, close to city life, but hidden away."

Leichhardt is a changing place, an old mix of ex government rental homes, ex raaf homes and private ones all mixed together with new developments around the edges. The older homes are mainly timber or fibro on concrete stumps and solidly built. Compared to the many new homes ( which are from $350k upwards ) the older stock is bargain basement buying. The homes lend themselves to renovations since the basics of just about all of them is very good. Many have undergone extensive renovations inside, but you can`t tell always from the outside.
The area has a fairly good mix of families and the retired and the occasional youngsters in a home. Its not a busy area at all, except the main through roads, and at night it is normally very quiet in most locations with nobody to be seen. The area is park rich, I`ve read it has more suburban parks than any other suburb in Qld. Many of the streets are quite leafy so it has a good feel. It is very convenient for shopping with West Ipswich shops and the main central area and Riverlinks shopping centre really only 4 - 10 mins away. It also has a very good regular, every 30 mins, bus service which runs around most of the area which is great for the kids and the oldies. On the whole the locals are friendly and helpful, but tend to keep to themselves and not intrude. I am myself a rep, and travel all over SE Qld, but its nice to come home to Leichhardt because its quite relaxed compared to many other areas.
Pros
  • Great Buying for solid homes

  • Parks, Leafy streets, Golf Club, Swimming Centre
