Suburb Guide

Little Bay

One of Sydney's undiscovered jewels until recent times, Little Bay is a tranquil seaside suburb situated between Malabar and La Perouse on the northern headland of historic Botany Bay – some 12 kilometres south of the Sydney CBD and less than 15 minutes from Sydney Airport.

The surrounding landscape features dramatic cliffs, golden ocean and Bay beaches, delightful oceanfront parklands and the adjoining Botany Bay National Park. Aesthetic housing development over recent years includes luxurious freestanding houses and a variety of boutique apartment and Townhouse projects. Significant infrastructure upgrades on transport routes, gardens, parklands and sporting facilities have greatly improved the desirability of the area.

Beautiful Little Bay Beach is a protected summer haven ideal for families and young children while nearby Yarra Bay Beach on Botany Bay is a popular swimming, sailing and picnic venue. There are four world class golf courses on the coast adjacent to Little Bay.

Trendy Little Bay Village has local shops, several quality cafes, supermarket, gym and medical complex while major shopping centres are nearby at Westfield Eastgardens and Maroubra Junction.
