Sitting between Kogarah and Hurstville in Sydney’s south, Allawah may lean on the smaller side, but it has everything you want in a suburb, and then some. Quiet and convenient, this little gem’s multicultural community is one of its biggest drawcards, as is its prime location to some of the region’s biggest assets.
Much calmer than its more vibrant neighbours, Allawah’s low-key shops along Railway Parade has your everyday essentials covered and is home to the recently renovated Allawah Hotel, a favourite spot to cheer on the local footy team. But when you want for more, you only need to wander down the street (literally) to be among the regions thriving shopping and entertainment district, Hurstville. Teeming with restaurants, cafés and an incredible selection of retail options, all of which reflects the area’s multiculturalism.
To the other side of Allawah is Kogarah, which lays claim to the region’s prominent medical facilities – St George Hospital and St George Private Hospital, and numerous schools that cater well to the needs of growing families in the area. Georges River is within easy reach, as is the shoreline of Botany Bay and the sprawling parklands scattered throughout the region.
With all this and so much more at its doorstep, it's little wonder that Allawah has caught the attention of those who want the best of both worlds, and all in the comfort of their double brick homes with fenced in yards. The streets of Allaway are lined with these little beauties and low-density apartments, and with a name like Allawah, an Aboriginal term meaning 'make your abode here', this gem of a place is where people come to lay down roots.
