An attempt to visit every suburb in Sydney.

The Cute Houses of: South Wentworthville

I'm always suspicious of suburbs which have a qualifier in their name, like this one. It says to me "Hi, I'm not a full suburb like Wentworthville, but you can come over anyway." 

Here's me working out if South Wentworthville is South Wentworthwhile or not.

South Wentworthville

Just like Mays Hill before it, I entered South Wentworthville by taking a walk off of The Great Western Highway and into it's suburban streets.

As I was expecting, I was greeted by the flat, straight streets of Western Sydney suburbia. 

What I wasn't expecting though, was how damn cute some of the houses are here.



South Wentworthville seems to have a fair few older-style one story houses which are in quite good nick, which is actually quite refreshing to see. 



Is it me or aren't these just the cutest?



This guy didn't have a cute house but he did make up for it with his mailbox. What's going on in this suburb?



This house, while a little larger, I also thought was quite interesting in a "come help an old lady clean her house" sort of way. A dog was losing its shit at me through the fence, so I didn't get too close.



Strolling through the suburban streets I eventually came upon a small strip of parkland which hugged what looked like a creek on the map.

This park is very Australia, with gum trees and a community BBQ.



And of course a DIY Gatorade-garden-hose bong, as can be found discarded in all good Aussie parks.



The "creek" turned out to be just a drain. Because I'm a bit of an idiot, I entered this gate and took a walk through the drain.





I realised the error of my ways and climbed back out, not wanting to have to swim home via Sydney harbour.



This led me back onto a real path, crossing under the M4 and eventually spitting me back onto our old friend The Great Western Highway.



Bonus: Outback Steakhouse - the fusion food of the great nation of Ameristralia. 



South Wentworthville: So you won't find it in Lonely Planet, but it's doing it's best OK?
