Scorched, desert-like ambiance

Some of its neighbourhoods are in elevated places, offering a nice view of Oakey Hill, Mount Taylor, and Red Hill. Lyons also has a number of walking tracks where one can enjoy the surrounding views of Weston Creek.
Property buyers are drawn to Lyons’ housing estates not just for its strategic location, but for its nice pool of houses for sale and relative affordability – although larger and well-positioned properties could set buyers back for over a million dollars.
