"Excellent city spot"

Plenty of parks around, and mostly a quiet suburb during the day. At night it gets pretty rowdy and noisy with parties and people walking home from the pub on the corner. But we loved living here. The only recommendation I would make would be to make sure the bedroom isn't the front room of the house facing the street!
Fabulous fenced oval for dog play over main road. Wonderful play equipment park within walking distance. Fabulous dining and entertainment opportunities within walking distance, and more importantly, so close to King St that the public transport is very regular and you wouldn't even need a car if you worked in the city!
Downside? If you do own a car, the streets are very narrow, and lots of cars go down too fast. Plus, the streets are lined with natives that drop a lot of sap. Several mirrors and car sides in our street were scraped. If we owned a half-way decent car at the time I think I would have sold it so I didn't ruin it. Also, on the weekend, you don't want to move your car lest you never find a spot again! We almost had to walk from another suburb one Saturday night when we returned and found no spaces left!
