has launched a new suburb review feature that involves the people who know their area best, the locals.

Australia is known for its family-friendliness, beaches and relaxed lifestyle offerings. But it can be hard to find a suburb that ticks all the boxes for your next move.

Whether you’re fresh out of school, getting married or looking to downsize, there may come a time in your life when you decide to move out of home and rent a property. Choosing the area to move to can be daunting at the best of times, so seeing what your suburb is known for can be a huge help at decision-time.

If you’re moving with kids, you’ll probably want a suburb that’s close to schools, great for families and even parks and recreation to enjoy the fresh air. Or if inner-city work and living is more your style, knowing there’s great public transport on hand and that the suburb is close to the CBD will be key.

That in mind, we think you’ll love our new suburb reviews feature.
