Safe city, never felt threatened.. maybe a bit worried in the early hours of the morning at a nightclub or something. But, during the day - 100% safe. Stay out of suburbs such as Dandenong, Frankston, Broadmeadows, Coburg, etc.. and you'll be fine. Inner city and close suburbs are safe. Lived here for 5 years.

I've lived in Melbourne my whole entire life and I find it quite safe, there are rarely crimes committed in the inner city as it is often crowded even in the middle of the night therefore criminals are too afraid to commit crimes as there would be many, many witnesses. Although there is quite a bit of petty crime in areas with less of a population. I will conclude by saying that Melbourne is safe as long as you stay in areas you're familiar with and areas that are well populated

I've been living in Melbourne for 25 yrs and its a very safe city. The people are friendly and helpful. Like every city in the world there are occasional incidents that happen but I feel safe walking just about anywhere.

Lived in Melbourne for 8 years including a stint in CBD. wanded around late at night many many nights including the red light district, caught last Train to suburbs and Never ever had any trouble or seen anything other than a few drunks you would see in any city. I feel completely safe in Melbourne. There is not a reason in the world to feel unsafe day or night. I feel safer in Melbourne than I do in my parents country hometown.
