St George is very popular for families, with this demographic making up approximately 58% of the population. There are ample open spaces throughout the area; notably Carss Bush Park, Kogarah Park and Rockdale Park. The St George area also borders the Georges River National Park, which is great for a family day trip to enjoy a picnic or BBQ, take a long walk, go fishing or take the boat out. For those who do have a boat, there is a local marina at St George. Along with ample green space, St George is also popular with families as a result of the rich artistic and cultural events held at Hurtsville Museum and Art Gallery and Hurtsville Entertainment Centre. Each year in September and October, Hurtsville also becomes home to an annual showcase of local creative and community culture — The Discovery Festival. Along with many fresh produce and artisan markets and community events, there’s something for everyone all year round.
Bordering Botany Bay means the St George area has a lot of beautiful coastlines, giving residents a ‘beachside suburb’ lifestyle while still being within commuting distance to the city. There are also many restaurants and bars lining the esplanades: it’s the perfect spot to be wined and dined.
