"Great suburb - transport, recreation, restaurants, schools and more!"

Penshurst is a peaceful residential area - its best 'pro' is the main strip filled with shops, supermarkets, cafes, RSL, pharmacies, beauty salons, post office, gyms etc. The suburb has many schools, both public and catholic (incl. church), primary and secondary. Hurstville Council Pool and recreational Park is located in the suburb, and it also has its own train station (as well as buses). There is a parking complex near the main strip of shops which is handy. It is only a short 5 minute drive to Roselands Centro, or Hurstville Westfields. The suburb is located only 5-10 minutes from the M5 which can take you to the city within a half hour.
Pros
  • Good public transport
  • Within half hour to airport or city
  • Good range of cafes
  • Affordable entry point for first home buyers
  • Close to Hurstville CBD
  • Good schools, shopping centres & transport
Cons
  • Mainly apartment/unit suburb

"A suburb with peace and quiet"

Penshurst has always been a neat and tidy suburb. Very Quiet, yet close to major shopping centres, great transport with Penshurst railway station on the Illawarra line of the City Rail network. It is approximately 27 minutes from Sydney Central via train. The main roads through Penshurst are King Georges Road and Forest Road. Punchbowl Bus Company also operates bus services 941 and 943 in Penshurst.

Good schools, Penshurst Girls High School, Penshurst Marist High School,Penshurst Public School, Penshurst West Primary School, Hurstville Grove Public School

Lovely suburb.

"You will love living here"

Penshurst is a sleepy little suburb located right beside Hurstville CBD and Mortdale.
There is a long shopping strip located in the heart of town and the Penshurst railway station at the end.
Penshurst has a high concentration of residential unit buildings making the area an affordable price to buy, and being so close to the capital of the St George district in Hurstville it is a popular choice for young working professionals.

Only a 10 minute drive will take you to the bayside suburbs and beaches as well as the cafe lifestyle that has proven so popular in recent times.
