Menai, Illawong and the surrounding areas of The Sutherland Shire are home to some of Sydney’s most stunning beaches, waterways, bush land and pastures, all within close proximity to major shopping districts and airports. The region’s family friendly, regional lifestyle has attracted many city residents looking for a change of pace and continues to be a fast-growing area of greater Sydney.
Although many assume the name “Menai” has Aboriginal origins, the area was actually named after the town Menai Bridge in Wales during the first settlement. Illawong, however, is an Aboriginal word from the Tharawal and Eora communities meaning “between two waters”, referring to the Georges and Woronora Rivers that weave through the region. There are many middens and cave-paintings still seen in the area, as well as a widespread cluster of landmarks such as Captain James Cook’s landing place in Kurnell, Botany Bay National Park, Bass & Flinders Point and Royal National Park depicting Australia’s most significant historical milestones.
Set against this historical, semi-coastal backdrop, families can select from a number of primary and secondary schools, including Menai Primary School, Aquinas College, Lucas Heights Community School, Alford’s Point Primary, Menai High, Tharawal and Illawong Primary.
For shopping and amenities, Menai Road features a bustling shopping strip of popular restaurants and cafés, with the Menai Metro and Menai Marketplace shopping districts offering Woolworths, Big W, an Electronics Boutique, Baker’s Delight, Michel's Patisserie and Gloria Jean's Café. Illawong residents needn’t travel far either, with the Illawong Village shopping centre housing medical facilities, shops and supermarkets.
