An attempt to visit every suburb in Sydney.

Souq: Fairfield Heights

I'm back in Western Sydney. This is a suburb I'd never heard of, but actually turned out to be a bit of a gem.

Fairfield Heights

I've previously shared how I feel about suburbs with "qualifiers", so I didn't have very high hopes for Fairfield Heights.

My exploring of Fairfield Heights began from its main commercial area, which is just a few small blocks of shops on "The Boulevarde", the suburb's only real main road.

This suburb's flavour is definitely Middle Eastern.

One of the first things I was treated to was the sights and smells of this takeaway shop flaming some charcoal chicken in their window. Sadly, the picture I took just shows some reflective glass, so here's their sign instead.

Just a few doors down is Luxe.

Now Luxe may have purchased their signs second hand from a gentleman's club, but in actual fact is a shop chock-full of amazing looking baklava and other Middle-Eastern sweets.

I mopped my drool from the floor and continued exploring.

Another store facing an identity crisis is this Vietnamese restaurant which, judging from the ornaments in the window, thinks it's a Vinnies.

This suburb sure likes to show off. It even has a shop specialising in metalworking. I can't say I've seen that elsewhere in Sydney.

Passing a "Shisha bar", I decided veer off the main drag, and take a look at some of the residential streets as well.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the streets immediately by the shopping area turned out to be duplex city.

I can't say I'm a fan of the styling.

Regardless, I did see some interesting houses in the neighbourhood, albeit on the "other side" of the shopping street.

You ever see a house with hair? Me neither.

I had a friend accompany me to Fairfield Heights, so we headed back to the car to drive to our next suburb. We started on our journey and I commanded her to stop - "A POINTY HOUSE!"

This is the pointy house. I love it.

I thought this church, just a few doors down, was pretty interesting too.

Fairfield Heights: One of my more pleasant surprises. Remember me when people find out that it's pretty damn cool.

Also, a little girl lost her shoe. Can somebody please let her know that I found it.


  1. The pointy house has been a local fixture of mirth for decades.

    Funnily though with all the pictures of the food shops you took, you missed the best one, the chicken shop attached to the Woolies. As a long term resident I've tried almost every restaurant/fast food shop in the local council area and that's the best one.

    1. I'm glad that I'm not the only person to appreciate the pointy house.

      And I'll have to chicken shop in mind if I ever find myself back in the neighbourhood - thanks for the tip (now hopefully some other readers can try it too)!
