Im seriously looking at moving to Seymour. Can I get an opinion of the area?

I have 2 young kids so looking for someone relatively safe (i know every suburb has its issues). Also noticed a fair few houses for sale in Martindale Crescent and Wimble St.. is this just a coincidence or is there something I should know??

I think these people are completely wrong. Home is where you make it!!!.. Seymour is great place to live for families. Anzac ave is fine same a wimble st = All great streets to live.

I have lived here along time & it's as safe as any small town in Victoria..

Lived here 17 years. Live as close as you can to Station St and its OK. South of Station St it nice from Railway St up to Progress St. After that it becomes ugly and run down and is basically an outskirt of the "bronx". North of Station St is OK like Tristan St etc. Once you reach Anglesea St up Anzac Ave you reach the "bronx" with Martindale and Smith St, Chisolm etc and these are no go zones rife with Ice and burnout marks and V8s doing stallys every night. Do not live there! Wimble is OK but is on a truck route as trucks can't fit under Anzac Ave rail bridge. Stay very close to station st.

have a look at Echuca. No bush fire issues ! Best schools state and private, plenty of very well priced homes available from a normal block to small acreage. No drug or gang issues. Always something to do on the weekends and business is still growing and going forward which is a good indecation that Echuca has lots to offer

Seymour has never been affected by bushfires. It has a great Mediterranean climate. Not as hot as Echuca or as cold as Ballarat. Its a great place to live. Check out: GoSeymour, Mitchell Shire website, etc.

Aside from all this 'insider' information, use your intuition - Seymour is an hour from Melbourne and still affordable. It is highly underrated as a tree change town receiving much less lip service than other well serviced towns in close proximity to the city. It will boom soon, not a matter of if but when.

Looks are definately deceiving when it comes to Seymour. If you want to enjoy life or want your children to have a chance in life don't move there.
It's not a coincidence - steer clear of anything around the Anzac Avenue area.
