The Safest and Most Dangerous Sydney Suburbs: How to Protect Your Home and Family

In contrast to most other countries – such as the United Kingdom and the United States – Australia is lucky to have low crime rates. In fact, Australia is ranked as the world’s 13th safest country, and Sydney is ranked as the world’s 5th safest city.

Although crime still exists in Australia, it pays off to be cautious about the area before you buy, as prior research is always the best idea. There are a few considerations that come into play when evaluating the most dangerous and safest suburb in any given area:

  • The current rate of crime
  • Police presence
  • Demographics of population
