Banksia is a hidden gem of a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is located 12 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Bayside Council and is part of the St George area.


Suburb Features:

- 3-5 minute drive to M5 motorway
- 20 minute drive to Westfield Eastgardens and Westfield Miranda
- 25 minutes drive to Cronulla beach
- good access to many churches and other places of worship
- good primary and secondary schools (both selective government and private schools)
- Banksia (and its neighbour Arncliffe) was selected by the NSW government as one of 12 "Priority Precincts" which are less than 30 minutes from Sydney CBD. The result is that the state government will be investing funds to develop Banksia so as to provide more jobs, better services, more housing choice, shops, cafes and restaurants. The future is definitely bright for Banksia!
