We invite you to discover the Sutherland Shire, a natural oasis just 25kms south of Sydney’s CBD.

It is often joked that Shire locals never leave and there’s good reason for that. Bordered by 200kms of sparkling blue waterways, 11kms of golden sandy beaches and 160kms of spectacular bush, the Sutherland Shire is a destination with plenty to offer visitors and locals alike.
