The Hurstville Museum & Gallery charts the story of how the area has changed from the days of the original inhabitants known as the Biddegal people, to the first land grants in the early 19th century that transformed the dense forests of turpentine, ironbark, bloodwood and redgum. This valuable timber was used in the construction of buildings, bridges and wharves throughout Sydney. With permanent exhibitions about the everyday lives of local residents over the last 200 years, the museum also offers an outstanding exhibition program along with workshops, talks, tours and special events.

Oatley Park is one of Sydney’s finest bushland parks and features 45 hectares of pristine bushland, walking trails and picnic areas on the picturesque Georges River.
The Oatley Park Castle, built from local sandstone during the Great Depression, is a popular landmark for weddings and special events and the park also has a safe swimming beach.
Hurstville has long had a proud sporting tradition. Over the years the area has produced many champion cyclists, cricketers, footballers, golfers and tennis players and now boasts excellent sporting facilities such as the Aquatic Leisure and Indoor Sports Centre, Hurstville Oval and Hurstville Golf Course that are providing opportunities for a whole new generation of outstanding sporting talent.
