Lilyfield is about 5kms to the city centre and lies next to the harbour. It is an older suburb with lots of leafy streets, parks and old Victorian cottages. It’s a very family oriented area with lots of things for kids. There are some great sports facilities at the Leichardt Aquatic Centre (Olympic pool, indoor pools, gym and sauna). This is set next to parklands, Iron Cove (harbour) and paying fields. There is a wonderful cycling/walking track by the water around Oron Cover they often walk/run/cycle around.
