Which are the good suburbs to to live in Invercargill?

Hi, I am relocating to Invercargill for work. I was wondering which will be safe/nice suburbs to rent a place to live in Invercargill. Are there any areas which should be avoided while searching for a place to rent? Any suggestions will be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

There's nowhere really bad in Invercargill but of course like any city, some areas are better than others. I suppose Windsor, Avenal, Richmond and Gladstone are some of the best areas. Waikiwi and Rosedale are ok too.

Probably avoid South Invercargill (South of Tweed street), though I lived there for years and it was fine. Property values are lower as you go south from Tay street, and higher as you go north.

Safety is not an issue in Invercargil. You can happily walk around at night. However if you don't like rugby or netball you might find conversation difficult.

I totally agree with #5 and presumably the OP has made some decision as it is almost 12 months since he asked.

Yeah...agree with you Brian and Barry. My advice to the OP has nothing to do with where to live...although isn't Otatara ok??? (don't take that as gospel however as I really can'[t remember). My tip is to be aware that the supermarkets don't sell any alcohol which always did my head in when working in Invers!!

The question on where to live was asked July 2017

Really no need to offer an answer 12 months later...
