Allawah is a quiet, residential neighborhood straddling the main southern rail line heading into the Sydney CBD. Its access to the train station, schools, and shopping has made it popular with professionals and families. It's also a quick ride to the calm beaches abutting Botany Bay.
Almost all the homes here are flats and you'll find a mix of older brick apartments and more modern buildings. There are very few dining options in this suburb and you won't find any nightlife.
Allawah is bordered on the north by Hurstville and Bexley, on the east by Carlton, on the south by Carlton and Blakehurst, and on the west by South Hurstville and Hurstville.
CBD: 21 km / 35-75 minutes by car / 30 minutes by transit
Chatswood: 31 km / 50-90 minutes by car / 60 minutes by transit
Parramatta: 26 km / 40-80 minutes by car / 60-70 minutes by transit
