Driving south over the Captain Cook bridge and entering the Sutherland Shire will find you in the waterside suburb of Taren Point.
The waterfronts along the southern shores of the Georges River and Gwawley Bay are dotted with luxury residences with sandy beach frontages, which in most cases have replaced the original fisherman and oyster farmers cottages. The lifestyle is definitely based on aquatic recreational activities and there is a well patronised bowling club on the border of Sylvania Waters.
Just 18km south of the CBD and 10-15 minutes to the domestic and international airport, the area is popular with those employed in the aviation/travel industry.
Public transport is by bus link to Miranda or Rockdale where rail connections may be made with ease.
Taren Point has it’s own primary school and pre school care, whilst a wide selection of higher education is available in nearby suburbs.
A short drive over the bridge to Sans Souci finds the St George Motor Boat Club with associated marina facilities and the the St George Sailing Club is another popular spot for relaxation. Restaurants and eateries specialising in international cuisine are plentiful in Sans Souci.
Avid gardeners happily potter around Flower Power’s flagship store for inspiration and landscaping ideas to take home and incorporate into their own gardens. Day to day necessities are catered for at the village shopping centre in Sylvania Waters whilst comprehensive shopping and services are at nearby Southgate Shopping Centre and Westfield Miranda.
Compact in size in relation to surrounding areas, Taren Point offers a wonderful lifestyle, easy access to the airport and city and still retains a relaxed holiday-like ambience
