Places nearby Penshurst


Penshurst is a central suburb in the Hurstville municipality, about 20km south-west of Sydney's CBD and within striking distance of Sydney Airport, Botany Bay and the Georges River.

This densely-populated residential area, which is officially recognised as one of Australia's fastest-growing regions, boasts 138 parks and reserves covering a combined total area of some 264ha.

The first settlers arrived here circa 1808, when it was known as Lord's Forest, to take up land grants issued primarily for general farming and timber-getting purposes. Indeed, much of the timber from which Sydney"s early homes and buildings were constructed was hewn from forests which once dominated this part of Australia"s first and largest city.

Although a landlocked suburb on the Sydney metropolitan rail network, Penshurst is just minutes from the river and the large tracts of recreational parkland and public facilities, including netted swimming paths and boat ramps, which hug the northern banks of the Georges River.

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.
