The southern side of Sydney is one of the nicest, most family friendly areas of Sydney. This part of Sydney has some of the best beaches in the city, eg Cronulla, Shelley Beach, Maroubra as well as the pristine, white sanded beaches of the Royal National Park like Bundeena and Maianbar. The St George areas of Lugarno, Connells Point and the magnificent garden suburb of Oatley are surrounded on three sides by the Georges and Woronora Rivers and the huge, leafy area of Oatley Park is one of the largest urban parks in Sydney. The areas of St George and Sutherland Shire are spoilt for choice with thousands of world class restaurants, cafes, theatres, trendy nightclubs, social clubs, sporting facilities and fabulous shopping areas. The areas are surrounded by rivers, the second oldest national park in the world (ie Royal National Park) and fabulous beaches. I have lived in the eastern suburbs and the north shore and, in my opinion, the St George and Sutherland Shire offers the very best of a fabulous Sydney lifestyle which is undeniably the best Australia has to offer. Unlike the north shore, the St George district is a very multicultural area inundated with restaurants offering cuisines from all over the world.

Hi Kathryn

That’s some good, solid advice for anyone considering making Sydney their home. You can’t beat a bit of local knowledge when it comes to choosing a place to live. Thanks for providing it, it’s really appreciated.

I’ve been lucky enough to have been offered a job in shoalhaven and will be moving as soon as my visa comes through!
It’s very exciting! If anyone has any info or advice I’d be thankful. :-)

Congratulations Leanne, hope it all works out well for you. I’ll leave it to the people of Sydney to help you out with your question, I really don’t know the area well enough, although you might want to check out my page about Wollongong, that’s much nearer to Shoalhaven than Sydney.
