If you're looking for real estate in the St George area, then you could do a lot worse than investigating your options in Hurstville.
The McCrindle Urban Living Index has revealed that Hurstville has scored top points across all the suburbs of Sydney when it comes to accessibility and nearby amenities. But what does that actually mean in practical terms?
Hurstville managed to land 19 out of 20, ranking it as the tenth-best suburb when it comes to amenities. Nearby education centres, good restaurants and a vibrant shopping scene define areas with superior access to amenities – and that is exactly what Hurstville was defined as by McCrindle.
This is unsurprising, as Hurstville has swiftly become a true CBD for southern Sydney, particularly after nearly $300million worth of new construction was approved in 2013, as reported by The Leader in a 30 April 2013 article. It's a rapidly growing area, with business and services cropping up right on the doorstep.
Accessibility, on the other hand, was far more about the public transport available for an area, as well as the ability of locals to walk to work rather than need to drive. Hurstville scored a full 20 out of 20, making it one of the best suburbs in Sydney if you're looking for good quality of life in this regard.
This propensity towards pedestrians has been encouraged by the Hurstville City Council in the past, as well as the National Walk to School day that this year will take place on 20 May. There is plenty of support for those who prefer to walk in Hurstville.
