  WHAT’S LIVING IN Cronulla LIKE?

Cronulla is an unabashed beach town in the Sutherland Shire region of Sydney, with a youthful population. The enduring icon in 'Nulla is its 5 km beach, which is a huge draw for surfers and is among famous surf spots maintained by National Surfing Reserves, a nonprofit organization. Due to the local train station that sits right on the beach this is a favorite destination for Sydneysiders during the summer and the beach can become quite packed. However, thanks to its size there's plenty of space to spread out the farther you walk away from the station.

This is a vibrant place to live. You'll find more than 100 restaurants here, mostly clustered at the south end of the beach. Cuisines range from burgers to Italian to Chinese to French and more. This same area has a respectable nightlife as well, with a number of local pubs, bars, and cocktail lounges. A word of caution is worthwhile: the bars are known for attracting a young, rowdy, drunk crowd on weekend nights, so if you have a family or like your peace and quiet, we recommend not living near this commercial area.

A favorite weekend trip is taking the ferry from Cronulla to Bundeena, a charming village surrounded by the sprawling Royal National Park.

Basic necessities like grocery stores, pharmacies, clothing stores, and other shops are all nearby. There are a few well-regarded primary schools here, along with a secondary school.

Much of the housing here is provided by two- and three-story apartment buildings, many of which have just a handful of units. There are single-family homes available, however, along with the occasional high-rise.

There is one black spot on the suburb's history that you're bound to hear about: in 2005 this was the site of massive race riots involving thousands of people who arrived on trains and in cars from elsewhere in the city. A number of people were injured and arrested and it started a dialogue in the country about Australia's embrace of multiculturalism. These days residents say the suburb has moved on.

Cronulla is bordered on the north by the Georges River and Greenhills Beach, on the east by the Tasman Sea, on the south by Port Hacking, and on the west by Woolooware.
