Default List of Sydney's unsafe suburbs

Based on people's feedback on several threads, I have compiled a list of Sydney's not-so-safe suburbs:

Granville, Bankstown, Lakemba, Liverpool, Cabramatta, Fairfield, Mount Druitt, Blacktown, Auburn, Redfern, Campbelltown, Kings Cross, Wooloomooloo, Penrith, Macquarie Fields, Glenfield, Maroubra, Blackett, Whalan, Emerson, Plumpton, Coogee, Bronte, Bondi, Tamarama, Campsie, Wentworthville, Rooty Hill, St Marys, Parramatta, Greenacre, Punchbowl, Matraville, Lewisham, Glebe, Eastlakes.

Anyone wants to add/remove?

Nope that's them all, all the suburbs in Sydney I mean!

What does 'unsafe' actually mean anyway? I lived in Coogee for a few months and thought it was a terrific place.

Those of us that have never been to Sydney have heard of Redfern, Cabramata and Lakemba as being the unsafe suburbs.

Everywhere is unsafe to some degree. I live in one of the more expensive areas and in the last few months we have had the SWAT team raiding a sleepy little cafe via the windows (to arrest a couple of rather nasty men), an ATM blown up, and drunk kids fighting and puking just up the hill almost every weekend.

Successful crims don't live in rough areas, so you can move to Kirribilli and have a gang leader for a neighbour (and I don't mean Kev).

Of course some areas are more safe than others, and you have them included in your list but as PPot says, some of those you included are des res areas. They also get rough because they are at the beach and people go, have a good time, drink too much, get leery. If that's why you've included them, put Manly on there too

Yeh, they are a rough lot in our local pub. They even queue up one behind the other waiting to get served.

Looking at actual crime statistics by suburb rather than the hear-say of Expats members could be a better way of getting something of use. There is a link on here to the ABS 2005 statistics in xls format - http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/subsc...11.2006&Latest

Disgraceful. OK the Bondi hotel and Coogee Bay Hotel have a lot of assaults but you have to be hanging around there in the early morning to have an issue.
