Cronulla, located on the Bate Bay coastline in Sydney’s South and just 26 kilometres from Sydney’s Central Business District, gets its name from the Aboriginal word “kurranulla” meaning place of small pink seashells. Known for its long stretches of sand that Miles Franklin referred to as “gold tinted snow”, attracts tourists from all over the world. Apart from it offering some amazing water sport activities, it is also home to many of Australia’s celebrities like cricketers Ricky Ponting, Glenn McGrath, Steve Waugh, Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Actor and TV presenter Daniel MacPherson and is the birthplace of Lara Bingle.
So, if you are not into swimming, surfing, bodyboarding or bodysurfing you could spend time celebrity spotting. Except for most of the celebrities, the suburb is home to around 20,000 Generation Y.2ers, 75% of which were Australian born.
Public transport is easily accessible - the Illawara train line starts at Sydney and terminates at Cronulla. If you disembark at Wolli Creek Station, the Sydney international and domestic airports are just one kilometre away, but you will need to change trains here or catch a cab. There is also a bus service that plies from Cronulla to Parramatta frequently.
The National Park Ferry Cruises run services from Cronulla to some of the touristic spots where you could watch the acrobats of whales and dolphins. Alternatively, you could hire a house boat, go water skiing, kite surfing or fishing, the choices are endless.
This picturesque location was once associated with one of Australia’s worst racial riots and the occasional beach closures due to shark attacks. These few negative experiences have not dented people’s love for what is known as “God’s own Country” because they continue to descend on the suburb by the throngs for the lifestyle it has to offer: the sun, sand and blue waters. Naturally, along with eight primary and secondary schools in the area, a shopping strip, cafes, parks, gardens, restaurants, churches, hotels, motels, nightclubs, pubs, clubs, bars and a cinema, it caters to the essential as well as the entertainment needs of the young families that live here as well as to the tourists who visit.
