What wanderer said is true and he has given some really nice advice to you. However there are very few areas in Sydney which are not safe but if you are little alert no need to bother a lot.

Sydney is vibrant and outdoors and summer

Melbourne is artsy and gourmet and winter

the dangers are over-rated.
I lived in the "no go" zone of Everleigh street Redfren for a few years (my house at 170 Lawson Street) and never had a problem with crime once!
Funny thing is, one night I parked in an upmarket street in Roseville on the north shore and my car was smashed by hoons walking past.

As an international girl myself i had the same situation when i first came to sydney. I have been here now for 2 years and I would like to make a suggestion to you.

I find that the Inner West area of Sydney is great in particular the Suburb of Newtown, Its a pretty trendy area lots of cafes , restaurants, shops, bars, and music venues. Its close to the CBD with lots of transport, Depending on where you stay there are 7 bus services that run through or within a short walk to Newtown that service the CBD(one of which goes as far as Mosman on the north shore)( depending on traffic aprox 20 mins to Circular quay, 10 to Railway square). 2 bus services to Bondi Junction and another to Coogee Beach. There is also a train station in Newtown. Its within walking distance of the University of Sydney so you get quite a younger crowd there. I have lived around here for over 2 years and absolutly love it. dont want to live anywhere else in Sydney. Everyone is very friendly and i have a large group of friends here because of this.

Flick me a PM if you want any more info

When I was in Australia the 1st time I lived in Bondi (which i wasnt impressed with, too hyped to be honest).. i spent most of my time over in the inner west in particular around Abercrombie street. used to frequent the Glengarry Hotel and the Rose on Cleveland as I knew a few people over that side. Used to walk to the station down Lawson all the time at night I just wouldnt walk down Eveligh Street is all. With Redfern it does have a bad name so people tend to avoid it. However it's a huge suburb and has a number of areas in it that are rough and gives it a bad name. your more likely to get attacked in one of the safer suburbs then there.

Having lived in Melbourne and Sydney for a short time , gosh , about 15 years ago, I have found both cities have their pluses. There are some cultural differences, but then have found that with all the cities in Australia. Sydney struck me as being more North american like and Melbourne more Australian. Just an outsiders opinion to add to the mix from the other side of the country.

Hi,

I'm actually from Scotland but lived in Sydney and Melbourne for 6 months respectively, I loved both but would say I preferred the beaches nearer Sydney but the city lifestyle Melbourne provided. I lived in Sydney CBD and found it easy to travel around, the harbour is wonderful and it's really not far to travel to some outstanding beaches. Melbourne is a great city, amazing diverse suburbs and if you're going to be in Australia in November I doubt there's anywhere better to be than the Melbourne Cup!

I'm sorry, this probably hasn't helped much. I loved both cities, I'm sure you can't go far wrong whatever you choose as both have their own qualities.
