Ok I have sort of being living in Ridley Street Albion (near Sunshine) for 7 months. Here are my thoughts on the area. POSTIVES: Near public transport Has a variety of cheap restraunts. Close to the city and pay less than anywhere else that close to city and transport. Has most shops needed everyday within walking distance. A short drive to Highpoint if the shops within walking distance don't serve your particular need at that time (IE. Myers, David Jones, etc) interesting people live here. NEGATIVES: Hear planes at midnight. area is dirty (though is improving slowly). interesting people live here.
