1. Easy Commute to Sydney

Hop on the commuter train for a quick commute to Sydney. It’s so handy having such easy access yet being able to live outside the hustle and bustle of the city.

2. It’s Close to the Beach

Soak up some rays on the golden sands of Cronulla beach whenever you want. This gorgeous spot is just a few minutes away by car.

A sizeable portion of the Sutherland Shire actually encompasses both Royal National Park and Heathcote National Park. Get out and enjoy some soothing nature walks and try to spot your favourite wildlife flitting amongst the trees.

4. Vibrant Economy

There is a prosperous economy in the Sutherland Shire that is only growing more attractive. Little shops, boutiques, cafes, and more have popped up all over the suburb. This gives residents plenty of ways to spend a fun afternoon as well as offering many opportunities for enterprising folk.

5. Arts and Entertainment

Love the theatre? You’ll be glad to hear that the Sutherland Entertainment Center is getting a makeover.

6. Great for Families

One of the best things about moving to the Sutherland Shire is its appeal to the whole family. There is plenty to do to keep young people and teens happy, the close proximity to the city is perfect for working professionals, and retirees love the laid-back atmosphere with plenty of necessary amenities like hospitals and public transportation.
