I have lived here all my life stretching over 19 years and have had a positive and privileged experience in this country. However there are multiple increases in adversity and crime in general across all of Sydney. The coastal east is the safest, stretching through the city and further until western sydney (where i have lived the most). The most infamy is produced from gang operations and infantile sub-cultures that younger generations adopt, this develops unsafe environments for anyone. The government could definitely assist but have had many fallouts with their actions in many issues in Australia.
So in short, Sydney is much safer than people make it out to be, however crime rises quicker as of recent and there are other problems that may need solving aswell.
You need to exercise normal common sense safety practices of living in a major city, Sydney is like any other major city in terms of crime, however its much safer than major similar sized cities in the US and Europe.
