"Rokeby is moving in healthy direction."

Rokeby is changing since we moved in 3 years ago. There was a lot property to choose when we looking to buy. But now since it is comparatively 100k cheaper than most of suburb, every property was sold so quickly. Our neighbour also sold her house before the formal Saturday inspections. She was offered cash payment at private inspection. Part Rokeby doesn't have view but I would say it is a place for family.
Pros
  • Quite and lots of green land.
  • Best Skate Park Statewide
  • Home of International Skakeboard Competition
Cons
  • 10 minutes drive from the closest shopping centre.

"Changing Reputation"

Rokeby has been attempting to change its reputation over the past couple of decades. The increase in private home ownership has been assisting in reversing its downward trend. Its development of the skate park and the international skateboard competition has sought to give youths another outlet other than crime. The jury is still out though as to whether this community can be turned around.
Pros
  • Home of International Skakeboard Competition
  • Best Skate Park Statewide
Cons
  • Public housing
  • Crime
  • Unemployment
