The residential suburb of Summer Hill, in the inner west, is exquisite even after dusk. This mainly residential suburb, about 8 km west of the metropolis, is mixed with flamboyancy and old but classic architectural designs.
Along Smith Street, various historic architectures stand still. One of them is the heritage-listed Summer Hill Post Office. Further along to the west are unusual houses which display Victorian influences with a touch of the structural design of the Federation era.
At the corner of Lackey Street and Hardie Avenue is a park with its fountain. Abundant cafes and restaurants as well as quirky shops are located in this area. One can also find a mural just near the park which gives a more relax and edgy feel of the suburb.
Summer Hill is a great inner-west suburb which mixes the ‘village’ atmosphere with the contemporary and modern architecture. A suburb befitting for relaxed evening of great food and drinks.
