Resting on the banks of the gorgeous Georges River in southern Sydney, Oatley is a convenient hub for families and mature couples keen to enjoy the beauty of the harbour city without having to live in the hustle and bustle.
Bordered by Mortdale, Hurstville, and Connells Point, Oatley is 29 kilometres south of the Sydney CBD and is surrounded by picturesque waterways and natural reserves. With Georges River to the south, Dairy Creek to the west and Moore Reserve on the east fringe, one of Oatley’s most promising aspects is its proximity to nature. Another alluring feature of Oatley is its intriguing history. The suburb was named after James Oatley, a known convict, renowned watchmaker and clockmaker who arrived in Sydney in 1815 and went on to build the clock that still sits atop Sydney’s Hyde Park Barracks.
Oatley’s prime location on the Georges River leaves plenty of room for stunning riverside homes. Most of the elegant waterfront properties adjoining the river enjoy private access to their own jetties along with superb panoramic views of the water. Away from the river, much of Oatley is comprised of expansive homes on acreages, contemporary bungalows and apartment complexes.
Dining and shopping indulgences are close at hand in Oatley with many cafes, restaurants and village shops along Oatley Avenue and Frederick Street. With its own railway station and proximity to the Princes Highway, transport to neighbouring suburbs and the CBD is easy to come by in Oatley.
