"Safe and convenient"

Excellent suburb to live. Safe and close to all amenities: hospitals, big train station with plenty of trains to city, beaches, shops. We have lived here for 9 years and love every day of it. It also has good schools for kids and good childcare too.

"Nice suburb"

Kogarah is a very nice suburb, considered to be the center of St George area. Close to the city, very good transport, health, education and a safe suburb. Prices are ok considering all the advantages this suburb have. I would say this would be a good tome to buy here as there is plenty of upside for this area in the near future.

"A decent place to live"

I lived in Kogarah for 21 years. Kogarah has a small shopping centre but Rockdale Plaza and Hurstville Westfield are a short drive away. Kogarah is a major station on the train line, and it only takes about 20 minutes to get into the city. Other points to note are the proximity of St George Hospital, a nice, modern library and a few good restaurants. There are also quite a few schools in the area.

"Close to transport"

Kogarah has a great shopping centre with local medical facilities and a good transport.

Good oportunity for first home buyers to purchase an apartment, for Uni students due to the easy train access to the city.

"Kogarah - Close to all amenities."

Kogarah is 16kms south of the Sydney CBD and is close to the sores of Botany Bay. Kogarah has some very old buildings for the visitor to see in including the Kogarah Railway Station, The School of Arts, and the old Courts House. The area has a large shopping centre with supermarkets and specialty shops and the town square is home to the Kogarah Library and Cultural Centre as well as many cafes and restaurants. Kogarah is a residential area with many houses and units, some good schools and easy transport. There is no shortage of sporting facilities with something for everyone. Kogarah is the northern home of the St George Illawarra Dragons NRL team.
