"Nice suburb"

3 month back we move to this suburb from Pascoe vale, we made the choice to buy due to affordable housing… I remember we where quite worried before moving as we didn’t heard good stories but once we moved, we loved it!
Pros:
- Parks feel safe to go out with kids
- kids like the primary school
- All shops are nearby
- Train station is walking distance
- Our neighbours are good as well.

Cons:
- In future kids will go to second school, however they seems not great.

"Surprisingly nice suburb"

I m surprised that I like this area n can call it home. Have been living here from last 2.5 years. All the daily necessities are close by. Great parks n very family friendly suburb.closw to city n the houses are not ridiculously priced.

You might hear a different story but go around n check the suburbs that are located with in 18-20 km away from city n you don't find much difference to the schools, facilities etc- except for the house price.

"Hell hole"

Been living here for 10 years, neighbours are scumbags non stop parties no manners no respect for other people drug use etc.this area is covered by hume council they are a disgrace the parks are full of dumped rubbish and unkept grass the streets are narrow and the council sends you a fine if you park half off the road so cars can get through.police are non existent in this area for any crimes other than if they can do a bit of revenue raising.motorbikes ripping through the parks, burnouts at night, people screaming,very uneasy feeling to live here worst mistake of my life buying a house here.be warned stay away.

Have family who live here, and whenever I bring my kids here they seem to love it. I also like the distance from the airport, I live a bit too far from Tullamarine airport which may be a bit of a problem lol.

"This is our neighbourhood"

Nice place, open area, a small number of trap houses, good place to get some paper but also do a good turn to. Close to meeting up with my crew and number of others around here around the area, good to bring down opps in the area and good place getting away from the pigs and the can or the cooler. This is a new place I'd like to call our new and greatest neighbourhood to be in. This place is ours. Opps will be taken down.

"Recently moved to Roxburgh Park"

I moved to Roxburgh Park a few months ago and am surprised by how much I like living here. I was living much closer to the city and I was a bit worried about whether I would have good neighbours and whether I would feel safe. So far so good the neighbours are lovely in my street and I have no regrets.
If you want cafes and nightlife at your doorstep this area is not for you. Most areas of the suburb have a great community feel and its easy to get into the city with the train station so close. Shopping centre has been improved and has everything I need for my weekly shop.

Great for

  • Affordable but still close to city
  • Safe
  • Great community

Not great for

  • Lacking in wide roads in most of streets
  • Limited retail, no streetlife, no entertainment

"Lower-middle income 90s era outer suburb predominantly housing young families"

There have been a lot of gushing reviews of roxy plus a couple of extremely negative reviews... to be honest it's somewhere in the middle. It's safer than some suburbs, less safe than others- apparently the latest statistics show it is slightly above the average for crime, but not by much. Like most outer suburbs its dominated by young families so dont expect any cafes bars or proper restaurants, and no high street as such, retail is all in one shopping centre, which has all the usual mass chain retail. There is a new train station, which isn't too far out of the city, which makes the prices in the area very cheap compared to suburbs that take the equivalent time to get the train to the city in the Eastern/South Eastern suburbs or via tram. Most people seem to get around by car tho, and you hardly see any people walking. Housing stock is pretty decent, mostly modest but nice looking houses, townhouses and terrace/row houses. Agree with an earlier poster about people staring tho- like most outer suburbs from what i've seen most other men act fairly conservative and dress/act the same, if you are doing/wearing something different to the rest (and not just talking about hipsters here) expect more attention than you're used to. Overall tho, if you're looking for an affordable place for a family not as far out as woop woop then its pretty good, if you're more worried about lifestyle, heritage buildings, public transport street life or nightlife, probably best to stick to places within 10 km of the city.

Great for

  • Affordable
  • Decent city access by train/car
  • Multicultural

Not great for

  • Limited retail, no streetlife, no entertainment
  • Have to drive everywhere; isolated if no car/license

2) Space - Excellent parklands and open areas - good walking / bike tracks.
3) Affordable - where else you can get a an excellent quality newish home under $350k and still be only 1/2 an hour from city.

"Where dreams come true..."

Much of what is now Roxburgh Park was formerly used as agricultural land and Roxburgh Park was only developed by the Urban Land Corporation in 1992 (not unlike the new towns in green wedges of Britain). The commercial hub of the suburb is located on Somerton Road (highways 35 and 58).

As of 2005 development has progressed, with the construction of more child care centres, a retirement village, an Islamic centre, as well as improvement of roads. The Roxburgh Park railway station opened on 30 September 2007.

Most of Roxburgh Park's fame came with widely screened TV commercials throughout the mid-1990s, presenting Roxburgh Park's avowed virtues as a planned community with a balance of residential, industrial and reserves (part of the Shanklands Reserve is in the south of Roxburgh Park), as well as community services and access to transport. The slogan for the campaign was Roxburgh Park - where dreams come true...

ive moved my kids from thomastown secondary to roxburgh college, i was pretty worried about the bad reputation roxburgh college had, but having the kids there and hearing their feedback, its pretty good, i think the college has come a long way, we're pretty happy so far, so good, and the suburb is great, esp for families.

"Great Place To LIve - Beautiful Parklands"

I have currently been living in Roxburgh park for almost 3 years, just off the popular hayfield road, I have 3 young children and find the parklands and school playgrounds in the area fantastic and the kids really enjoy going for walks and visiting all the different amenities. Excellent little community based suburb as all my neighbors are very friendly and caring.

Roxburgh park has undergone huge changes over the last couple of years with new roads opening up, very excited about the new road coming from somerton road up to the end of hayfield rd in the greenvale lakes estate which suits me and all living on hayfield road just fine. Hopefully the future proposed freeway exit running from pascoe vale road down to somerton rd gets here soon, it looks like they have commenced that down at the pascoe vale road exit near jacana from all the road works going on.

Talks about a westfield shopping centre looms, will be great for the suburb and will add great value to properties in the area if it was to eventuate

"great place to live if you have children"

I've been living in foxy for 6 years. There have been massive changes to the roads becoming dual carriage ways easing traffic in and out. Very quiet place to live and the neighborhood is usually friendly. The only downfall is rosy needs a shopping centre.

"Affordability and Performance"

I have been living here in Roxy for about 4 months now and feel very much at home in this suburb. Like any other, it has its positives and negatives.

Positives:

Affordability: It is cheaper than Craigieburn and 8km closer to the city. Its mostly Townhouses and houses here. Average price for a 3x3x2 townhouse is about 340,000 and house is 400,000.

Suburb Performance: Roxy was number 10 on top 10 growth suburbs in Melbourne in 3rd quarter 2010 with estimated capital gains of 10 % in that quarter alone!

City access by road: 10 min to tulla, 7 mins to Hume Fwy, 4 min to Hume Fwy, 20 min to Citilink. (I have tried multiple combinations of ride to the city. On Freeway (excluding rush hour) it is about 35 min on average. On through Pasco Vale Rd or Hume Hwy/Sydney Rd, we have been in city in 45 min on average.

Train: Its the second last stop on Metlink's Craigieburn line but unlike Frankston or Belgrave lines, it has much fewer stops and it takes exactly 36 min from Roxburgh Park Station to Flinders.

Parks and Recreation: Roxy is in between city and country so lots of natural beauty all around. Woodland Park, Greenvale Reserviour, 400 acre reserve to name a few. With in Roxy, there are quite a few parks and water bodies.

People: Roxy is not a rich suburb but its not a troubled suburb either. There is a healthy mix of Aussies and Immigrants as well as a large Turkish and Islamic community. Interest from migrants has given the suburb a boost.

Active Council: It falls under city of Hume which is a fairly big city with a very active Council. Local libraries (especially at Broadmeadows) are great, with lots of activities planned all year round.

Negatives:

Entertainment Options:
You basic Safeway, IGA, Chinese Store, Discount Stores, Deli, Bakery, Halal Meat Shop are all there but if you are looking for Cafes and Bars, you should have stopped at Brunswick or Ascot Vale. The fact is, its a typical family with kids suburb so you dont have the night life offered in the 10 km radius.

Major Chains: Roxy is nestled between three big suburbs, Broadmeadows in South, Epping towards the East and Craigieburn to the North. All roughly 8km away. This means that all local Bunnings, K mart, Hoytts etc are also about 8 mins drive.

Safety: It is definitely much safer than Meadow Heights and Broadmeadows, but there have been one or two incidents recently. Then again, these incidents happen in Melbourne CBD also so you be the judge of that one.


Overall, I recommend people in this price bracket to consider Roxy simply because it is affordable, has all the basic facilities, transport links and services in a natural environment with a decent multicultural mix of people.

"Seems ok so far!"

Close to amenties, such as Safeway, Roxy Hotel and shops, not far to Broady town centre etc. Lots of gyms I notice around.
A few parks around, bit far from my place though as are bike tracks for kids.
A lot of noisy cars-tyres screeching late at night and during the day and too many cars and trucks parked in front of houses, some dumpy cars with overgrown grass parked on nature strips spoil area.
Getting out of the suburb almost makes you car sick just driving out as the roads are shocking, too many turns as not enough main roads.
Traffic is shocking in mornings down pascovale road to barrys rd from 8am-ish and after work. Seems to move better after there.
Don't hear many dogs barking which is great.
I like it but miss where we used to live with a big park next door and quiet.

Get used to the hoons doing burnouts, the car smashes, vandalism and graffiti because this suburb is rife with it. Used to be a nice area but every public amenity has been destroyed by the vandals and morons who couldn't give a crap that this is the suburb they live in. Living in Iraq would be safer!!

Too dangerous for teenage girls to walk through after dark. Rapes,stabbings, bashings and robberies are the norm in this god forsaken suburb!!

Wow, I can't believe the positive things people are saying about Roxburgh Park.. I lived there for 2 years and the amount of crime was unbelievable. The way people drive in the residential streets is a joke. Mine and my partners' cars were both egged in the duration and it wasn't uncommon to drive past cars with smashed windows. As a young woman even a trip to the supermarket was laden with unnerving stares and in comparison to the Eastern suburbs where I grew up this experience was unfamiliar and unwelcome. The streets are rife with stray cats and the playgrounds are vandalised and inhabited by intimidating, young adults who use language which could not be considered child friendly in the slightest.

Police presence was unheard of and would no doubt have improved the environment ten fold.

I hope that others' have a more pleasant time living in Roxburgh Park.
