"Hurstville"

I've been a resident of Hurstville for almost ten years. Overall I think that it provides you with a comfortable lifestyle as amenities such as transport, medical facilities, shopping and schools are readily available. For example, I only live five minutes walk away from the train station, which is a major stop making it very convenient if I want to travel to the city, as well as other suburbs. The Asian community here is thriving so there is a wide range of food, people, and culture. However I believe that Hurstville has presented its residents with several problems which have gradually escalated over the past years due to the rising population. Traffic congestion, especially on Forest Road and The Avenue, is a concerning issue. On weekends and during peak hours I have experienced much inconvenience and delays because of the shocking amount of traffic jams. It was not as serious a few years ago, but nowadays it takes me an additional fifteen minutes to arrive home from either picking my children from school or driving home from the shopping centre. I also feel that road etiquette has slowly deteriorated over the years, with many drivers cutting lanes and in their hurry, not letting pedestrians cross the roads. Another thing I am concerned about is the availability of parking areas in Hurstville. As more and more people come to the suburb for its convenient facilities, the spaces in the carparks get filled rapidly every day. Speaking as regular visitor to the library, I think that finding a parking spot is very difficult, even more so when the council demolished the carpark opposite the library for the construction of the Medical Centre. These days I have to park 200 metres away from the library, which inconveniences my elderly mother who has trouble walking.
Pros
  • Very convenient (transport, shopping, childcare)
  • Close to restaurants, cinema, shops, cake shops, parks
  • Good for Investment
Cons
  • Traffic
  • Parking

"Another Ruined Suburb"

I've lived here all my life and seeing what has happened to Hurstville is like a nightmare. It's as if we have lost a war with China but it's just our corrupt Government. The people here must have paid a lot more for there drivers licensces and the already bad traffic conditions are compounded. We've had high density developments forced on to us regardless of overwhelming objections, it's over crowded and unpleasant. As the government continues to bring in more people to Australia the surounding suburbs are slowly going the same way. I am not a racist in fact I think that a multi racial country is a good thing but this stupid muliculturalism that has been inflicted on our country has been a disaster. I can't wait to get out of here.

timh6 Hey ainee how am I a racist when I clearly wrote that I think that a multi racial country is a good thing.
I just don't like the fact that Hurstville once a great suburb has been ruined just to cater for chinese immigration.
How dare you call me a racist you don't know anything about be. Only one of my three best friends are Anglo.

"So much variety in Hurstville"

People come to Hurstville from all around because of the Asian restaurants and because shopping for groceries is good, and Westfield is a bonus. Locals like to live in Hurstville because it is a central suburb in the south of Sydney, making it very convenient to go either south or west, and just half an hour by train to the city. Property prices have experienced steady growth since 2008, and the median house price is about $1.4M, while the median unit price is about $720k. Like Hurstville itself, the surrounding suburbs are quite varied ... a mixture of houses and units, both new and old. There's something for everybody here.

  • Clean & green (clean, friendly neighbourhood)

"Hurstville isn't a special place to live, it's just a place to live."

Hurstville has nothing special about it. It's a run down place that recently started to go up in price due to massive over purchasing of property in Sydney. There are HUGE high density residential complexes being built everywhere and absolutely no community spirit at all. As it stands people who live in Hurstville are mainly Asians, and young families who can't afford an actual house. There is a MASSIVE amount of Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese community in this place and for some that's great, for others not so much. Hurstville also has a decent indoor swimming pool and it's driving distance to Brighton beach. The food venues aren't anything special, the parks aren't anything special, the people, well they keep their head down and are generally non communicative. There is a run down RSL and a decently sized police station. It's not the safest and most secure place to live, but it's not exactly unsafe either. Neighbors are generally grumpy, it's a crowded place. Lastly if noise is a factor, Hurstville is very noisy, planes fly over and traffic jammed tight all around.

Would I live here? Well, if Sydney house prices weren't so expensive I almost certainly wouldn't. As it stands, Hurstville is a choice for some, not so much for others.
Pros
  • Great indoor swimming pool

"Live here and hates it."

I've lived in Hurstville for around six years. At the risk of being labeled a racist/ bigot, I will be writing honestly and telling you my exact thoughts. I have to also say that I am of a Chinese background myself. So let's get started
Statement: Hurstville is multicultural.
Thoughts: Technically, yes it is. The word "multicultural" has been thrown around in all possible directions by newspapers to describe Hurstville. In reality, it seems pretty much dominated by the Chinese, especially around the railway stations and shopping centres.

Statement: Hurstville is a mini Hong Kong and all the Chinese 'gang up' - if you're not of Eastern Asian descent you'll feel excluded.
Thoughts: Yes, Hurstville is like a mini Hong Kong. No, the Chinese do not gang up or do special deals with each other. Conversely, Chinese shop owners often prefer customers who are not of their own race. Neither are Chinese people specially nice to each other (in my experience). That's right. Unfortunately if you live around the main activity hub in Hurstville, and are not Chinese/Taiwanese, then you WILL feel excluded in some cases. Chinese characters dominate most shop signs, advertisements, pamphlets, free newspapers and free magazines.

Statement: Hurstville is really very convenient.
Thoughts: Let's look at it this way. It's convenient in that there are health centres, schools and a Westfield in the area. However it is in no way close to beaches and major parks.

Statement: Hurstville is clean and green.
Thoughts: Not really. Cigarette butts can be found everywhere. Woodville Park seems to be a popular spot for people to dump their plastic bags and tissues even though there are actually bins there.

Statement: Social etiquette is deteriorating.
Thoughts: Yes it is. Some seem to think that it's okay and perfectly hygienic to spit anywhere they like. And I'm sorry but the biggest offenders are cute Asian gradpas and grandmas. Many halt abruptly in the middle of the pedestrian paths when they see an old friend and just stop there for five, ten minutes, completely unaware (or inconsiderate) of the fact that there are others who share the same path. I agree with one of the previous reviews, too. Drivers often think it's okay to ignore the "give way to pedestrians" sign, treat the flashing red pedestrian light like one that's not flashing, cut corners, cut pedestrians off when they are crossing, or just ignore pedestrian crossings and continue driving at 60kmph even if there are little kids trying to cross the road. Being rule-abiding citizens on foot, every single member of my family have been nearly run over more than once this year.

Last but not least, Statement: It's a nice and quiet neighbourhood.
Thoughts: I think that depends on which street you live on. If you are easily woken, do not live near Westield. There are spots where these huge commercial trucks unload. You'll go berserk.

Happy suburb shopping!
Pros
  • sort of convenient
Cons
  • loading decks
  • Few good cafes
  • Not near beaches
  • King George Rd/M5 intersection is slow

"Practical choice"

I love the convenience of Hurstville. I have two children now. Nothing worse than living in a small surburb and missing the express train to pick up kids. Plus the public primary schools are quite good here, even though my children are not in the school age yet.
Pros
  • Good primary school
  • Very convenient (transport, shopping, childcare)
  • Close to restaurants, cinema, shops, cake shops, parks
  • Excellent lifestyle (parks, eating out, water/beach, clubs)

"Hurstville"

I used to live in Hurstville years ago when it was a lot smaller. Now the new tag name for Hurstville is "Worstville" - the traffic and noise pollution is horrendous. My husband and I sold up when the going was good and moved to gorgeous Oatley which, compared to Worstville, is a paradise. I lived in Hurstville for 10 years and never got used to being right under the ROARING flight path. One never really gets used to the constant, ear deafening roar of planes but when you add to that the incessant congestion of the traffic, cars, buses plus trains, I am so glad we now live in the leafy green village of Oatley - I wish I'd moved years before! Whilst Hurstville has good shopping, I don't think it is a great place to live and it has lost its neighbourly feel. It's like a mini Hong Kong.
Pros
  • Very convenient (transport, shopping, childcare)
  • Close to restaurants, cinema, shops, cake shops, parks
  • Safe area
  • Good shopping centre
Cons
  • Right under the awful flight path
  • Very noisy
  • Not a lot of good parks
  • Few good cafes
  • Not near beaches
Stevo001
Stevo001 I definitively agree with you Katie. Hurstville doesn't feel multicultural at all, it just feels very mono cultural these days. Oatley is a great choice, it is much quieter there.

u147
u147 @Katie08 and Stevi001 You are Wrong Wrong Wrong. I disagree with you completely.-

Hurstville is one of the most convenient suburb in Sydney.

- It has a first class Westfiled shopping centre.

- First class public transport. Central in 17 mins on express train.

- The best train station in Sydney

- It has the most quality restaurants in the St George Area, ranging from Hong Kong, China, Korean, Japanese, Australian, Pubs, Clubs in all price ranges.

- If that is not enough food, Beverly Hills restaurant strip is just a 3 mins drive.

- The biggest Ikea in the southern hemisphere is only 10mins away via M5.

- It is also close to Inner West, Airport, Eastern Suburbs. 45 mins less driving to Canberra, Snowy Mountain, Wollongong etc etc. if compared Northern Suburbs.

- It is close to Botany Bay which is great for a coffee break by the water.

- Taxi to the International Airport is only $23. From Oatley - $40

- Oatley is like Siberia because it is cut-off by King Georges Road. The traffic jam is the worst nightmare on Hillcrest Ave every morning and afternoon including weekends when you are leaving entering Oatley. Terrible Transport in Oatley.

- Less Trains at Oatley.

- There is absolutely nothing to do at Oatley except that small Coles supermarket which does not have the full range of items for sale, so you end up at that so terrible Hillcrest ave to travel to Hurstville to shop and eat.

- Hurstville Real estate is supported by rich Chinese . A small 400 Square Metre Block is $800,000. This is much more expensive than Oatley per square metre.

- Aeroplane noise is minimal and it depends on which side of Hurstville you are talking about. Only a small percentage of Airport traffic past Husrtville. Never during peak hour as the east-west runaway cannot cope with the peak traffic. It is only on days with strong cross wind In the NorthWest runaway where they will use EastWest more. There is no Jumbo Jet flying over Hurstville as the east-west run way is short and the pilots don’t like it.

- You never notice the planes. You must be talking about plane noise before the third run way was built.

- Traffic noise is busy only in the CBD & Westfield. By 6pm, it is very quiet. In fact 98% of the streets in Hurstville are just like Oatley. Not much cars, quite. I don’t know what the hell you are talking about when you say Hurstville is noisy. Get your facts right.

- Oatley foreshore is infested with mosquitos.

- There are more brand new architecturally designs double brick homes in Hurstville than anywhere else. In some streets, there are more modern houses than old house. It is modern place to live in. The golden streets of Hurstville are Carrington, Dora and Donald. Buy there and you will make a lot of money.

Katie08
Katie08 u147, I'm sorry but most people who know Hurstville (as I do) would thoroughly disagree with. Did you know that Hurstville has got a new nickname: "Worstville". I lived in that horrid, ugly place for 10 years, my dear, so I DO know what I am talking about. By the way, property values in Oatley outstrip Hurstville at every turn and if you have a look at the AVERAGE price for a place in Hurstville, it is about $300,000 cheaper. Homes in Oatley are going for well over $1.5 Million and up. But besides all this, Oatley is a much, much MUCH nicer environment. Oatley is like the new Beijing so I guess if you are Chinese immigrant used to living in a one bedroom cement tenement apartment, yes, it may seem like paradise BUT to most Aussies it is a bloody nightmare now. Oatley is spoiled for choice for wonderful restaurants, cafes and the best pub in the southern suburbs. You have no idea, my dear, but that's OK, you stay put in Worstville with the smog, noise and pollution. The restaurants (if you can call them that) in Hurstville are, well, you can hardly call them anything but a long wall of cheap Chinese take away joints and I'm afraid I am not a big fan of Chinese food. Also, Hurstville shopping is your worst nightmare - especially at Christmas. The traffic, the planes, the buses - Ugh! Keep it! The only people who want to live there are the Chinese who end up leaving it in droves when they realise that there are just better places out there .. Oatley for one.

Katie08 u147, just wanted to show you this link comparing prices with Oatley and Hurstville:

http://apm.domain.com.au/Research/?AddressLine=OATLEY%20NSW&LocationType=Suburb&State=NSW&SuburbId=34082

As you can see, Oatley outstrips Hurstville both in housing and unit costs PLUS properties sell at a much faster rate. Unless you are a Hurstville Real Estate Agent with an axe to grind, I think you should get your facts straight!

Whenever I go to Hurstville everyone stares at me as if im from another planet. I dont know if your chinese u147 but if you are you would feel comfortable and you will definatly blend in with the others, so you wouldnt feel the differences with us. Im am not racist, love chinese food. I remember when I was small all the shops were owned by people with the surnames Brown, Leigh, Burns and Smith. I now live in Cronulla and I do feel that the community there s much more multicultural.

richm Dear Kate 08, we just built a $2.5m house in Hurstville. Surprise, surprise we are not Chinese. We are actually Lebenese. Hurstville has some of nicesest and caring chinese you will ever meet. Well educated, doctors, soclitors and lawyers. No sticky beak Aussies who wants to know everything. Private schools, private hospitals, and most importantly Chinese with money and lots of it.
The area is bullet proof, with Chinese status fighting to see who has the most money at Auction.
Little Oatley next to housing commission Riverwood and Peakhurst has none of the above except the smell of the georges river on low tide!!! So please once you become a little more educated about the Chinese and how powerful they are comment on your thoughts about Hurstville.

aineee Without Chinese buyers, Real estate market will not be so active like today, it's the Chinese people who opens up restaurants, set up businesses to make Hurstville booming . So don't pick on Chinese community , they are law obeying citizen try to make this place better.

"Best strip of restaurants, close to large shopping centres and trainline, M5"

Most houses in Bevo are in quiet streets. The train line is being upgraded, and the M5 makes it easy to get into town or the West. There are 2 large shopping centres within a 5 minute drive away(Roselands Centro and Westfield Hurstville). There are lots of schools and childcare centres to choose from. Cheap fruit, veg and Chinese groceries are available from Narwee, which is next to Bevo.
Pros
  • Close to restaurants, cinema, shops, cake shops, parks
  • M5 and trainline makes it easy to get anywhere
  • Schools are plentiful
Cons
  • Not near beaches
  • Few good cafes
  • King George Rd/M5 intersection is slow

"Good for Investment"

I'm a young 1st home buyer. I choose Hurstville because I believe its great potential for investment. With rapid growth of populations (particularly new wealthy immigratns) with relatively affortable price compare with inner west and north shore suburbs.

In addition, it's less than 10mins drive to the botany bay/georges river and 20mins to the royal national park for the weekends..

It seems of becoming quite crowdy in Hurstville but luckly, i'm on the quiet side..
Pros
  • Good for Investment
  • Very convenient (transport, shopping, childcare)
Tomhurst
Tomhurst I would be extremely careful in investing in apartments in Hurstville. A lot of the developers are not large reputable large corporations and may be sub-standard. For example look at Queens Garden (Queens Rd), the exterior grey walls have already started to crack and it has not even been over 2 years since it was finished.


I would stick with large developers such as Multiplex and Meriton when investing in apartments and for quality buildings and peace of mind.

Aaron
Aaron That is why when I purchased a home to live in 4 years ago, I was more concerned about the land size, etc, than the house or views or amenities. I could have purchased a brand new house and land package advertised at around $300K with no stamp duty out in the west, but with additional costs of $50K plus because of all the extras you basically have to pay for to make the place liveable, and on a small 350 sqm block, or purchase a 12 year old existing home on 585 sqm, in an established area, for $580K plus Stamp Duty. In the end, Land is going to be what is scare in years to come, not homes or apartments or units. Can always grow more timber or make more bricks.

"Quiet suburb yet with easy access to public transport"

Beverly Hills is a suburb located 18kms south of Sydney, With easy access to M5 motor way to Airport, City or Eastern suburbs. The Sydney City Rail train to city is only about 25mins.
Beverly Hills has mostly low density housing, Very quiet surrounding, with Some beautiful tree lined streets, Sporting oval and tennis court are availiable. If you are after nightlife or restaurants you have choices of cousin from All nationalities, Australian, Greek , Chinese, Germany, Japanese, Thai etc. Beverly Hills Hotel and Cinemas are part of the night lifes here. Friendly suburb with great quality schools , child care centres around, excellent area for rising families.

"Very Convenient location"

Hurstville reminds me of Chinatown in the city with all the shop signs and many Asian stores around the area. It has numerous restaurants, cafes, coaching colleges, boutiques and even a Westfield in the middle of the city. It is conveniently accessible by trains and you can always park your car in Westfield when you go shopping.

Lately, more and more high-density residential units are being built. However, there are still many houses that are located about five minutes away from the station. The streets are not as narrow as those in the inner suburbs of Sydney but they do tend to get very congested on the weekends as people make their way into the town centre. There is a good mix of families from different cultures who live in Hurstville and there are plenty of schools around the area too. In general, I will recommend Hurstville for families looking to relocate as it is convenient, accessible and most houses here have an average size backyard that kids can run around in. Additionally, it is only a twenty minutes train ride to get into Sydney CBD.
