Police were called to the address at 9.30am today by ambulance staff after two people were found dead.

Police said they are unable to comment on specifics of the case at this time.

"The deaths are being treated as unexplained at the very early stage of our enquiries."

One local resident, Hayden Lockley, said it's come out of the blue for a neighbourhood that's normally pretty quiet.

Post-mortem examinations will be carried out and a scene examination is now underway.
