Hurstville

A thriving commercial and residential centre in Sydney's south-west, Hurstville is the administrative hub of an area which covers 23sq km and includes such suburbs as Beverly Hills, Kingsgrove, Lugarno, Mortdale, Narwee, Oatley, Peakhurst and Riverwood.

It is part of the St George region where James Cook first raised the English standard in 1788. Not surprisingly considering the Cook connection, the regional flag and coat of arms have been designed around England's patron saint and celebrated dragon-slayer, St George.

You are never far from the sea, a river or a bay in Sydney's south, and Hurstville is no exception. Its southern boundary is formed by George's River, which flows into nearby Botany Bay.

The densely treed, steep slopes of the river frontage offer a glimpse of the extensive forest which once covered much of the southern Sydney region. The largest pocket of native remnant bush is found in the 45ha Oatley Park whose stands of angophoras, scribbly gums, geebungs, bloodwoods, peppermints, she oaks, banksia and mangroves protect at least 114 species of birds and waterfowl.

Stone paths and gardens surround the park"s kiosk which overlooks the swimming baths on Jewfish Bay.

Bardwell Valley Golf Club Ltd


Bardwell Valley Golf Club is a picturesque course located close to the city of Sydney, yet it gives you the feeling that you are far away from the hustle and bustle. Bardwell Valley Golf Course was set up under an arrangement between Rockdale Council and Bexley Golf Club. The course was carved out of original bushland terrain, firstly operating as nine holes in 1964, then 12, and finally 18 holes in 1978.

Whilst only a short course (10 par 3s and eight par 4s), the course is cleverly laid out to minimise the impact of the hilly terrain. From the higher parts of the course, the city skyline including Centre Point Tower can be clearly seen. Beautifully maintained, the course is a popular venue for members, local residents, and many who travel some distance to enjoy the convivial atmosphere of both course and clubhouse.
