Suburb Profile


King of convenience, Rockdale is a shining star in Sydney’s St George region. Beautiful homes, a strong café culture, parklands aplenty and all within easy reach of the city, airport, beaches and the major hubs of St George. With so much to offer, Rockdale has long been on the radar for those who want it all at their fingertips.

Rockdale is a hotspot for those who crave seriously good, and affordable, food from all corners of the globe – Macedonia, Nepal, Serbia, Italy, Greece, Thailand, Bangladesh, China … you name it; you will find a little eatery in Rockdale dishing up some of the best cuisines. The café culture is also strong, keeping locals well-caffeinated, whatever their preferred brew is. Princes Highway and surrounding streets, with its touch of art deco architecture, are at the centre of it all. It’s also where Rockdale Train Station is, which has commuters into the city in under 30 minutes.

Rockdale Plaza is home to some big-name household brands, but for a wider variety, Kogarah and Hurstville – the shopping, entertainment and medical hubs of the St George region – are close at hand. And what also ranks Rockdale high in the family-friendly category are the public and private schools, which are in abundance in and around Rockdale. Parklands are plentiful with Bicentennial Park being the biggest and best with a skate park, sports fields, playgrounds and picnic facilities. And moment away is the shoreline of Botany Bay. 

Rockdale is also a standout favourite in Sydney’s south for its wide streets and established double brick houses. Modest abodes sit alongside beautiful bungalows with pretty gardens, while apartment living continues to be on the rise around Rockdale’s major hubs. It’s a diverse neighbourhood that is all-embracing, with a laid-back attitude that many love to call home.
