The Shire

The Shire captures the best Sydney has to offer with its famous ocean shores, breathtaking sea cliffs, iconic waterfalls and rich bushland surroundings. It is affectionately known for its lively community presence with people actively engaging in a range of festivals and celebrations reflecting life in The Shire. Located south of Botany Bay and the Georges River and just 25km south of the Sydney CBD, the Shire’s central position makes it the ideal place to live for people who want to escape the daily hustle and bustle of city life – yet still be connected to it. Covering an area spanning 370 sq kilometres, the Shire is also home to four national parks including the oldest of its kind – The Royal National Park – protected since 1879 and sprawled across 17,800 hectares. Many attractions encompass the Shire’s extraordinary flair, including the Cronulla Coast, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, the historic Como Hotel, Nina’s Chocolate Factory and the villages of Bundeena and Maianbar which are nestled between the ocean and the bush. There are more than 100 schools including 20 pre-school and secondary schools and those that serve children with special needs. Encompassing a range of facilities, a collage of beautiful landscapes and a great health and education system, the Shire provides the community with a comfortable and adventurous lifestyle by the sea.
