The suburb's architectural landscape features a mix of Victorian-era homes, Federation-style residences, and contemporary apartment complexes, creating a diverse and visually appealing environment.
Lewisham is rich in green spaces, contributing to the overall quality of life for its residents. The beautiful Petersham Park, situated nearby, offers a picturesque setting for outdoor activities, picnics, and sports.
