Sutherland Shire Real Estate
‘The Shire’, ‘God’s Country’ or as it’s officially known, ‘The Sutherland Shire’, is home to a string of stunning beaches, including the famous Cronulla Beach. Surrounded by rivers, bays, the ocean and acres of thick bushland that mark out the boundaries of Sydney’s Sutherland Shire, Port Hacking to the south, the Georges River and Botany Bay on the north, and the Woronora River on the west.
The Royal National Park in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire is the world’s second-oldest national park, after Yellowstone in the United States. Kurnell lies on the Eastern Shore of Kamay Botany Bay National Park, near Cronulla, and is recognised as Captain Cook's first landing point in Australia.
Predominantly a residential area, Sutherland Shire is home to over 230,211 people, covering an area of around 365 square kilometres. Houses dominate as the most common type of dwelling in the region but apartment developments are on the rise. Some of the more well-known suburbs in the area are Cronulla, Bundeena, Engadine, Heathcote, Port Hacking, Sutherland and Caringbah.
Located 26km from Sydney’s CBD, the Sutherland Shire is a destination to consider for people looking to stay close to Sydney but escape the expense, crowds and busy streets of the city.

A host of options abound for uncrowded swimming, boating, water sports, bushwalking and exploring the area. The Royal National Park covers 16,000 hectares of spectacular scenery from the coast to the bush.

The Cronulla Beach walking track starts at Wanda Beach and is a picturesque six-kilometre coastal trail following the shoreline and is a great opportunity to check out some of the beachfront real estate. Cronulla, or kurranulla, as the Dharawal Aboriginal people (the area's original inhabitants) named it, means ‘place of pink seashells’.
