Waterways and Bays

Explore Sutherland Shire’s beautiful waterways – the Port Hacking River, Georges River or the Woronora River. 

Botany Bay meets the mouth of the Georges River. From here the river flows from Taren Point through to Sandy Point in the west, and feeds into Woolooware Bay, Gwawley Bay, Oyster Bay, Bonnet Bay and the Woronora River.

In the south, Port Hacking flows in from the Tasman Sea between Cronulla and Bundeena. On the Cronulla side, Port Hacking feeds into Gunnamatta Bay, Burraneer Bay, Dolans Bay, Gannons Bay, Yowie Bay and Gymea Bay. On the Bundeena side, it feeds into Simpsons Bay, Fishermans Bay, South West Arm, North West Arm and the Hacking River at Grays Point which terminates at Audley Weir in the Royal National Park.
