Live in woolloomooloo high amounts of needles found on the ground and in bathrooms, Needle injection room in Kingscross 5 min away. Weed, MDMA, H and Ice seems to be high around here along with homelessness, graffiti and petty bike thief.

Can see the odd prostitute or two in Woolloomooloo (Not kingscross) at 2am.

Not as bad a BlackTown where I used to stay there has been high rated of burglary (People breaking into homes not stores) down that way due to Ice usage.

Australia will soon be flying the Chinese flag and become the 24th province of China. Sad I don’t have anything against diverse asian migrants but the Chinese are taking over. The only people who can save us are the Indians. An Indian and Chinese cannot occupy the same space. So come on India only you can defeat the china man.

New Married at First Sight ass(Bronson Norrish) has his sights on plugging his great big fat cock right up his bulldog arse for his next stint ! As B. Norrish was a stripper, he could well strip his pants & underwear off to show us all the sights between his thighs & behind ! Great show, innit ?

I find Sidney a very safe city. I came for a 1 month visit to family and felt much at ease and very safe at the beaches Coogee and Maroubra and Darling Harbor where I visited. My daughter and grandson feel very happy here since 10 years ago. Coming from South America I can feel the difference. The feeling is of a much safer sensation than back home. And the people have been very polite and friendly, almost like home.

Ollie(January 14, 2018) wants to masturbate on the beach, frigging his cock & balls ! Sea air is good for the privates, says Ollie. Blick(Nov.21, 2017) might hope that he could pump up Ollie's arse !
#Frankly Speaking. on Jan 12, 2019 :
Ollie's(Jan. 14, 2018) cock must be standing upright at the beach with his balls & arse line in full view !

White supremacists anywhere will be weeded out & destroyed by Hamas or ISIS. Any of these that tries to destroy racial balance in any country.

Arabs are all the rudest most disgusting of all. Crime rapes dole bludging imbreeds.
#Anonymous on Apr 08, 2018 :
Badly so many racists here.

Since we are in the crime thread, why don't we just talk about crime ?

What's wrong wtih the Asians being in Australia? Do the Asians commit more crime than the whites or other race groups?

A fact to note: Asians cities like Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo all have way lower crime rate than cities in Western countries like NYC, London and Paris.

Btw, people with Asian ethnicity cannot be "real Australian"? What do you mean by real Australian? White Australia also came from Europe, they are not native to Australia. Come on.
#sirtop on Mar 15, 2018 :
Hey do u exprience sny gouging ptoblemes in Australia?
#Chloe M on Jan 22, 2018 :
I back packed Australia for 3 months down the east coast. Lovely scenery and beaches. Not many white or aboriginal people as 90% are Asian. Hopefully I find some real Australian's on the west coast. Will update.
#Ollie on Jan 14, 2018 :
F+&% me, you got to be kidding if you think Sydney or Australia is a tourist destination.
Nothing but blooming Asian's drowning at the beach and everywhere you walk. Shite !
#UK Backpacker on Dec 13, 2017 :
If you go to Sydney and anywhere else in Australia, learn to speak Chinese as the Aussies are out numbered 3 to 1.
Its a crap-hole of a place where everyone thinks the clock was shortened to 12 hours per day and cant do what's required in a 24 hour day.
Had big expectations after watching Home and Away for years, however sadly disappointed as Sydney was nothing like what you see on TV.
#Anonymous on Dec 02, 2017 :
Came to Sydney Australia in 1988 for the Bi-Centennial and loved the place.
Came to Sydney Australia in 2017 for a wedding and hated the place.
Australia has changed so dramatically in 30 years it should now fly the Chinese flag over the Sydney Harbour Bridge - cause, its not Australia anymore.
Just another Asian slum country.
With regrets, from a USA ex-lover of Australia.
#Blick on Nov 21, 2017 :
As with most of Sydney since 2000, the Asian take over has forced every day Aussies out of their suburbs. Firstly, Asian's move in as renters, then they turn whole suburbs in to ghetto's (deliberately) and not one shop has English speaking or signage, which devalues the area and landlords and other residents are forced to sell up cheap (to the Asian's) just waiting to buy (cheap).
Once the successful eviction of every day Aussies has been completed, the Asian Mercedes and BMW clan's start rolling in, the peasant's are rewarded (and move to their next suburb) and a new province of China has been created (in Australia).
Not racist, pure fact.
#DoA on Apr 08, 2017 :
Living in Mount Druitt,it is really horrible.
The blocks are strata-managed but rubbish can be found at everywhere and noise can be heard at anytime.
#Anonymous on Jul 01, 2016 :
I live in Sydney, have done for years. I walk to & from work every day & have never encountered any problems. I think trouble generally doesn't give you, unless you go looking for it. Sydney is relatively safe. Just like everywhere though, you need to exercise common sense.
#Mark on Feb 08, 2016 :
I've lived in Sydney for 28 years, maybe once or twice i've had the odd argument with a stranger who was a bit inebriated. It is bloody ridiculously safe in Sydney.
#Shammis on Oct 06, 2015 :
Lived here for 20 years, near the west. Never been assaulted or stolen from, but then again I've heard of people getting assaulted and stolen from, don't want to jinx it. I think this is normal in any place around the world. I'm from the Indian Sub Continent and have encountered racists at school but this was very minor. Aussies can be racist but most of them keep to themselves. Sydney siders like to drink a lot, are very social and love to indulge in desires like lots of shopping, sex, drinking, food and partying.
If freedom to do whatever you want is the most important then this is a place to be. If you want spirituality then the desert is the best place to be, you won't find it here.
