sydney's hidden gem surrounded by bay, beach & bush

WHO WE ARE

Located south of Sydney's CBD, we are a rich and diverse community. You may have noticed us on your way south; our lush parklands, sparkling bay and river, award winning restaurants and cafes. Our people come from many backgounds, and this fusion of colour and culture is what makes us so unique. We have been Sydney's hidden gem for a little while now, and its time for us to take centre stage.

THE WHAT, WHEN + WHERE

Love Local is the perfect platform to discover our precinct. By creating a meeting place for our community and broader Sydney, we hope to encourage other local individuals and businesses to work together for a brighter future. Our aim is for Love Local to become the catalyst for great things in our community. 

Our platform will be home to Love Local, and also links to other wonderful things happening in our region. 

More information coming soon.
