Lansvale is a picturesque suburb along the Chipping Norton Lake on the traditional land of the Cabrogal tribe of the Dharug people. It’s a quiet pocket with many homes and a local school, but it is also home to some interesting historical sites and an abundance of natural beauty. Lansvale is a great destination where you’ll see the intersection of change throughout Western Sydney.

Lansvale is bordered by the Hume Highway, which is home to an array of food stores, warehouses, and a locally famous drive-through sugar cane shop. The busy road interface hides the beauty of the suburb behind and it’s a delight to discover. For coffee, visit the very sunny and fun Paradise Café, inside Blue Haven Pools. Part of one of Western Sydney’s leading pool builders, the owners have created this stylish café spot and hit it out of the park. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner here, with excellent café favourites including pancakes and old-school burgers.

The innovation hasn’t stopped there though. Blue Haven Pools has made its pool showroom into an event space purely for entertainment. Paradise Pool Club is inspired by the glamour of pool-side nightclubs mixed with holiday luxury. Have a peek and check their website for public events in this extremely luxurious poolside club.

Next, head over to the Lansvale River Walk which runs along Chipping Norton Lake. Easily accessed at Bradbury Wharf, you’ll pass several river beaches including Eora Beach which is a local spot for fishing. The walk takes you along this bend in the river where you’ll see plenty of wildlife including fish, migratory birds, and ducks. There are over 50 different bird species in the area, so watch out for the ever-changing variety and the local resident pelicans, egrets, and purple swamphens.

You’ll also find several wharves along Floyd Bay, which is connected to Chipping Norton Lake to the east. These piers offer great views of the river and a place to slow down and enjoy nature. This area is also a popular water sports spot, and you’ll find parking and river access at Floyd Bay Boat Ramp.

This part of Lansvale was also famous during the 1980s as the location of Magic Kingdom. A popular theme park on Hollywood Drive, families once flocked to Lansvale for a day out on the rides and games arcades. There are traces of this bygone era, and if you look closely, you can imagine the area in the 1980s.

 After a stroll, ride, or run along the foreshore, you’ll be ready for a meal. Liverpool Golf Club is located just off Hollywood Drive and is a beautiful green landscape with a great clubhouse overlooking the fairways. Enjoy a light meal and beverage from their Clubhouse Café. And, if you’re a golf person, why not play a round after?

Finally, Lansvale is also home to the 1836-built heritage-listed Lansdowne Bridge, which is still in use for eastbound traffic along the Hume Highway- chances are you have crossed it without knowing the history. Built by convicts and designed by well-known architect David Lennox, the bridge spans Prospect Creek and is built from Hawkesbury sandstone. The bridge is a single arch that spans 33.5 metres. You can view it best from the David Lennox Walk near Quest Avenue.

Lansvale is perfectly portioned and packs a punch. A place full of history and nature to discover. WEST loves exploring the surprising gems of understated suburbs, and it shows us just how much is below the surface of Western Sydney for everyone to explore.
