Local Information

Sutherland Shire

Nestled amongst pristine beaches, national parks and recreational waterways stands Sydney's famous Sutherland Shire – affectionately known as "The Shire". An exciting mix of the great outdoors and vibrant cosmopolitan living, residents of the Shire have come to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Covering a total of 370 sq km, the Shire is just 25 km south of the CBD and 20 minutes from Sydney Airport. Its excellent transportation system of trains, buses and highways makes this Sydney gem easily accessible.

If it's getting back to nature that you seek then you'll love the Shire's four national Parks, including Australia's oldest, The Royal National Park, and the place where Captain Cook first landed in 1770 – Botany Bay National Park.

The Shire boasts 11 km of white sandy beaches, including Sydney's famous Cronulla Beach with its legendary surf breaks. It's heaven for boating enthusiasts who take advantage of the Shire's amazing waterways, including the iconic Port Hacking River, that are also used for water sports such as sailing, canoeing and kayaking.

There's plenty of retail therapy on offer from the boutique shopping at Cronulla to the huge Westfield at Miranda, housing all the big department stores and specialty shops. Connoisseurs of food, wine and coffee will delight in the excellent range of restaurants and cafes that bring together a mix of people to create the urban buzz that the Shire is known for. The relaxed community atmosphere that exudes through the dynamic calendar of festivals and celebrations reflects the lifestyle and culture of those who live there, and makes it a place you'll never want to leave.
