With picturesque scenery from Carss Bush Park to one side and the spectacular waterways of Georges River on the other, Blakehurst is a suburb surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes.
Situated 21 kilometres south of the Sydney CBD, Blakehurst is part of the southern Sydney St George area. With South Hurstville to the north and the Sutherland Shire directly across the river to the south, Blakehurst is a highly convenient suburb but with the air of a secluded hideaway. Its prime location on the banks of the Georges River along with its hilly aspects and bushland setting gives Blakehurst its unique native ambience. For the best views of the Georges River, don your walking shoes and head to Bald Face Point Reserve.
Away from its native landscape, Blakehurst provides all the necessary amenities you could want in a southern Sydney suburb. Dining and shopping conveniences can be found on the corner of Princes Highway and King Georges Road, while schools, churches and sporting facilities are well within reach. Venture a few kilometres south along Tom Ugly’s Bridge and you’ll find yourself in Sylvania, the gateway to the bustling Sutherland Shire region. You don’t have to go far for some extensive retail therapy either – travel just a few kilometres north to Hurstville and you can shop til you drop at Westfield Hurstville.
With everyday amenities on hand, an extensive travel network connecting you to neighbouring suburbs, outdoor attractions and beautiful scenery on your doorstep, you can’t blame locals for believing that Blakehurst really does deliver the best of both worlds.
