Peakhurst

Flanked by Salt Pan Creek and the Lime Kiln Bay reach of the Georges River, Peakhurst is something of an island suburb in the municipality of Hurstville in Sydney's south.

The creek and the river is richly endowed with boat access ramps and waterside parks most of which are reserved for public recreational use.

It is an area of Sydney which is particularly rich in reserves and parkland, much of which hugs the creek and river shorelines.

One of the municipality"s standout buildings is the Centennial Baking Museum which occupies two impressive terraces on Forest Road. The building was used as a bakery for almost 100 years until the premises were taken over by the Hurstville Historical Society which opened the museum in 1944.

Four years later the operation was taken over by the Hurstville City Council and is now used as a centre for permanent and temporary exhibitions. The permanent exhibitions include an Aboriginal Gallery, a display reflecting domestic life in the 19th and 20th centuries and, naturally, an historic baking exhibition.

Botany Bay, the southern beaches and large shopping centres are all within comfortable driving distance and there are major road and rail links to the Sydney Central Business District.

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.
