Climb Literally Every Mountain: Mount Lewis

We now return to our scheduled programming, with some Western Sydney mountaineering.

But first, an announcement! This is Completing Sydney's 50th suburb! If you haven't already, now's a great time to slide into the Facebook or Instagram pages, or subscribe by email, because there's around 600 more suburbs to go.

Mount Lewis

Mount Lewis is an absolutely tiny suburb sandwiched between behemoths Punchbowl, Greenacre and Bankstown. The bus from my previous suburb dropped me off outside of the Mount Lewis Bowling Club which is not actually in Mount Lewis.


This suburb is so small that it's actually hard to enter.

I turned left into "Old Kent Road" (of "brown square in Monopoly" fame) to actually begin the suburb, and even here, only the left side of the picture is Mount Lewis. What a cruel fate.

I was fully expecting to not see anything worth writing about in this tiny suburb. Thankfully, Mount Lewis definitely delivered it's own flavour of strange.

This house I can only assume is a one-of-a-kind.

But weirdly shaped houses aren't what this suburb is about.

No, Mount Lewis is about aggressively large houses.

In awe at the size of this lad. Absolute unit.

Hmm.

I'm proud to say that I did conquer the summit of Mount Lewis. Here, you get majestic 360 degree views of nothing in particular.

My next suburb was a short stroll from here (and from anywhere in Mount Lewis really) so I headed past this angular home and downhill to start making my way there.
That shadowy place is Bankstown. You must never go there.

On the way though, the colossal houses continued.
How come your suburb microscopic, but then your houses colossal?

I crossed through this dead end and made my way to the next suburb. 

Mount Lewis: Why wait until retirement to own a mansion in the mountains?
