An attempt to visit every suburb in Sydney.

I hope you're ready, because I'm about to subject myself to yet another new housing development suburb. This is North Kellyville

Duckling: North Kellyville

I hope you're ready, because I'm about to subject myself to yet another new housing development suburb. This is

North Kellyville

This suburb is probably the newest suburb I've covered on my blog so far. It was only declared a suburb in 2018, after the Kexit vote saw it split from its southern neighbour Kellyville

I was actually here today to meet a friend for some afternoon coffee and sweets, so my journey started straight at the local shops,
where The Bakehouse was the place to be.
They do pies, drinks and apparently meals as well, but most importantly, their sweets are pretty damn good. I believe this was a cheesecake tart, a peanut butter eclair, and a nutella thing. I'm a wonderful food blogger. 
The reason we chose here in particular, is that a different friend had told me that The Bakehouse is the best coffee in The Hills and I wanted to scope it out. 
The coffee seemed fine, but I'm someone who drinks the office Nescafe so I know that my opinion on the matter is irrelevant. 
Normally, when you go for a coffee with friends, after the coffee you may head home. When you go for a coffee with me, however, I then drag you around the suburb to look at residential streets. 
And that we did.
Now, the fact the North Kellyville has only existed since 2018 means that this is yet another new housing development suburb.
This one isn't quite done yet though, with orange netting, 
cranes,
and big piles of dirt still being the norm. 
Someone dropped their solar panel on a stick.
Still, even though the suburb isn't quite ready yet, with a clear blue sky you can't help but want to explore. 
As such, we took a stroll through the new development to see what we could find, 
resisting the urge to leave a footprint in this new footpath for future archaeologists.
While the unfinished streetscape full of new houses isn't particularly exciting, 
it wasn't long before we were treated to a local park, something a little bit more up my alley. 
Here, I said hello to this awkward frog,
and continued towards the park's centrepiece - a not half bad lake.
This is where North Kellyville comes into its own, due to not only having ducks,
but also a duckling. You can't dislike a suburb if you see a duckling. It's the law.
Duck or no duck though, the late afternoon sun really makes North Kellyville's local lake glow.
Is there anything else in this suburb?
Not really. 
I liked this house in a Desperate Housewives sort of way, 
and North Kellyville Pre-school has a nice pencil on their sign.
On a side note, why does every apartment advertise itself as "luxury" these days? There's nothing wrong with living in an apartment (I do), and there's nothing wrong with living in North Kellyville, but come on guys, in no planet is an apartment in North Kellyville luxury.
Especially when across the road is a tree farm,
for now.
From here, I was back at the local shops, where I hopped back in the car and left North Kellyville. 
North Kellyville: How much I enjoy exploring a suburb is directly proportional by how good the sky is that day.
