    Interesting! It depends I guess on where one walks around in what suburb of what city in Australia or Nz. Having lived in a “bad” neighbourhood in Melbourne and a “good” suburb I can tell you that perceived safety matters to me. In Auckland I live in the affluent part and walk long distances at 11pm by myself. It’s such a big topic but one that could be explored on a suburb/locale basis I reckon
