Silverwater’s Blaxland Common has
a steep hill that’s easy to climb, thanks to a

Derby Street, Silverwater: I wonder what's at the top? I guess I'll never know.
Released into Newington Road to work on the footpaths of Silverwater in the winter cold?

This Silverwater corner store is on the corner (that figures) of
Asquith Street and Skarratt Street North. Such small businesses are rarely seen in Sydney suburbs now,
but Silverwater has stacks. They're open from 5am and all are closed by 3pm.
The bridge across Duck River, Silverwater,

Silverwater has three distinctive features:

typing it a few times; the rest of us should be grateful
that we have a shorter suburb name.
Does your city have any longer suburb names?
