    Cronulla Plaza is the pedestrian shopping area on Cronulla Street. Here there are plenty of shops, restuarants and cafe. Cronulla is definitely a laid back beach town that loves to relax; which is evident in their many outdoor cafe's.Liz and I enjoyed shopping in some of the unsuual shops in the area and found some real bargains. Several of the...

  • Cronulla Beach

    seemingly endless miles of beach stretch north from Cronulla, becoming Wanda Beach and stretching to the distant horizon. Wanda and Cronulla Beaches are great places to get away from the busy Sydney Beaches and catch a wave, walk for miles, take a swim or just read a book. For me its a place i often escape to. I'm not exactly sure why, but Cronulla...

  • Tasty Singapore Noodles

    Montien Tong is a small Thai/Asian restaurant. It was recommended to us by several locals so we had to try it for ourselves. The restaurant has a small take away area at the front selling prepared foods for the lunch/dinner crowd. We decided to have a sit down meal and eat inside. The waitress brought us menus along with water. Liz and I decided on...

  • Inexpensive and Tasty Pub Food

    JD's is a local pub in Cronulla. We met up with Laura and some of her friends for their Thursday night meal at JD's. Thursday nights there are pub specials that range between $10-$11 dollars for some really good items such as steak and S&P squid. The pub is filled with locals since it is a bit off the beaten path for the tourist set. After checking...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Northies is the local "pub" as Laura called it. It is not what we would consider a pub...it's more like a nightclub/danceclub with live music and some gambling thrown in for good measure.

    There were several areas to this place. We stayed in what they called "the grown up area". One of the other sections was filled with the young kids and teenagers...we felt as if we were babysitting.

    It's definitly an interesting place to people watch for sure with all the drunken mayhem that ensues. We watched a couple of rowdy people getting bounced out and one girl even went toe to toe with the cops.... There was also a local guy who is about 70 who likes to take his shirt off and sing with whatever band happens to be playing...what a character.

    Laura, Me and Liz (March 2010) Silly Pub Shenanigans... And the band plays on... and shirts come off..

Cronulla Transportation

  • Walking

    Walking around Cronulla is quite enjoyable. From the Rail Station it is a ten minute walk to the beach and shopping is even closer. Walking allowed us to find the quirky little shops we so enjoy especially the second hand bookstore.

  • Driving

    Driving to Cronulla is easy; finding parking is not always so. There are several parking garages in the area as well as on the street parking but during peak times the spaces are hard to come by. The two times we drove in instead of taking the train we had quite a lengthy search for parking and then a rather lengthy walk to the pub and club.I...

  • Take the Train

    Cronulla is on the Illawarra line of the City Rail and is covered by a purple transit pass. We would catch the train and head out on a 45 minute ride to Cronulla that ended at the Cronulla Station. From the station you can walk, catch a taxi or a bus around town.

    Trinity Clothing was another shop we visited when we were in Cronulla. The shop was small but has a large selection of women's dresses, shoes and accessories.

    Cronulla on its day is one of the great east coast surfing spots. I still remember as a young teenager travelling for hours by trian to surf/bogey board.

    Equipment: Surfboard or bogey board.

    Favorite thing: The ocean was great, the beach was quiet- its still awaiting summer where there is barely any room left in that sand.
