Unsure how recently this was asked so not sure if it'll be much help, but if you can, look elsewhere. Liddiard Road and its vicinity is the Bronx and there's a lot of commission housing and crime there. When I say a lot, I mean relative to the Valley and Gippsland. It's heaven compared to Melbourne.
Look on the north side of town or even just a bit further west. Message me if you have any more enquiries.
