Kogarah

The south-eastern Sydney suburb of Kogarah, about 15 kilometres from the CBD, stretches west from the shores of Botany Bay, just a kilometre or two from Kingsford Smith Airport.

The home of the now-amalgamated St George-Illawarra rugby league team, they are football mad out this way and built a 'palace' to the sport in their architecturally-challenging St George Leagues Club on the Princes Highway.

Kogarah is also home to the massive St George Hospital, one of the biggest in Sydney. While the name of Kogarah is very Australian - being a derivative of the Aboriginal name for 'place of reeds' - the suburb is today culturally diverse with two in every five people coming from a non-English-speaking background.

The municipality of Kogarah was proclaimed in 1885, but it wasn"t until 1886 that the first municipal council was elected. The first meeting was held at the Gardners Arms Hotel, now St Joseph"s Girls High School and previously the site of St George Leagues Club.

Kogarah: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.
