Welcome to Hurstville - ‘the heart of St George’. We have it all here in our city – lifestyle, access, diversity and opportunity. Centrally located within Sydney’s Metropolitan areas, Hurstville is the focal point of a sprawling, dynamic region of growth. The surrounding suburbs include Beverly Hills, Allawah, Hurstville Grove, Oatley, Lugarno, Penshurst, Narwee, Kingsgrove, Riverwood, Peakhurst, Peakhurst Heights and Mortdale.
Hurstville is one of eight regional centres within greater Sydney located just 15 kms to the south-west of Sydney’s CBD. It is one of the fastest growing parts of metropolitan Sydney growing by 11% between 1996-2001. Covering an area of 24.7 sq km, it has several major residential, shopping and commercial centres with approximately 26,000 dwellings that are home to its population of 75,177.
Lifestyle is one of Hurstville’s best kept secrets. There’s every kind of housing type you could imagine from leafy tree-lined suburbs with beautiful executive villas to waterfront style living as well as cosmopolitan apartment-style living. Hurstville’s lifestyle compares with almost any within metropolitan Sydney.
The Georges River and Salt Pan Creek form the natural boundaries to our City.
The Georges River is considered to be one of the area’s most valuable natural assets due to its aesthetic, recreational and biological value. Bays along Hurstville’s part of the river include Edith Bay, Lime Kiln Bay, Jew Fish Bay and Gungah Bay.
The City also contains a number of remnant bushland areas, including Oatley Park, the largest native bush reserve in the St George Region. This park has the most protected sandstone vegetation communities of the entire local government area and for this reason is of particular conservation significance. The natural bushland contains a wide variety of native trees, shrubs and flowers.
Hurstville’s central location means that you are within minutes of beautiful ocean beaches, river foreshores, bush reserves and national parks. Hurstville City itself provides a tremendous range of recreational opportunities to enhance our resident’s lifestyle.
The city contains a huge network of 165 parks covering 248 hectares, world-class recreational facilities consisting of an Aquatic Leisure Centre, Hurstville Oval – One of Australia’s premier suburban ovals, tennis courts and a golf course.
We are a city that possesses a strong sense of community with a family focus. We are proud of our past and determined to work together for a strong, sustainable future for our region.
