Bangor Community Guide and Business Directory

Welcome to Bangor


Bangor is a suburb in southern Sydney, located 28km south of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Sutherland Shire. Bangor sits on the southern bank of the Georges river and is adjacent to Menai and Woronora.

Commercial Area

Bangor is a mostly residential suburb with a small shopping centre which consists of Bangor Community Pharmacy, Bangor post office, Bangor Bakery, The Chicken Spot, Franklins and Bangor Chinese. Most residents rely on other commercial centres, particularly Menai, for services. Bangor's outskirts are surrounded by privately owned bushland, which is undeveloped. The last development application for this land was declined, thankfully, as the bush is home to Bangorís large range of native wildlife including (but not limited to) possums, bats, variety of birds, snakes and bilby's. The bush surrounding 80% of the primarily suburb, links it to the natural Australia, and residents find a sense of outback within it.

Bangor has tennis courts and two sporting ovals (Akuna Oval and Billa Oval) named after the roads they are situated on. Bangor is home††††††††† to the Bangor Brumbies soccer club and its home field is Billa Oval.


The main road running through Bangor and Menai is Menai Road. The Bangor Bypass was completed in February 2005, to alleviate traffic in the area.

There is no rail service. The only public transport is run by Veolia Transport NSW (formerly Connex Southtrans). The buses (961 and 962) operate on Menai Road and connect Bangor to Menai, Illawong, Alfords Point, Barden Ridge, Padstow, Bankstown, Sutherland (the nearest major transport hub, which includes a major railway station), Sutherland, Kirrawee, Gymea and Miranda.

Since the Bangor Bypass was opened, extensive road works have been implemented to Bangor's main road, Menai Road. These included narrowing of the road, traffic lights at the intersection with Dandarbong Avenue and a small parking area for parents outside Bangor††† Primary School. During the Easter Show period, these changes have caused the large quantities of drivers that normally park along the formerly curb-less road to park in narrow neighbouring streets. However, similar changes to the road within Menai have caused Easter††† Show parkers to park along the outer traffic lane of Menai Road.


The name 'Bangor' was selected in 1895 by the land's owner, a farmer named Owen Jones, after his birthplace Bangor in Wales. To avoid confusion with Bangor in Tasmania, the Postmaster General's Office changed the suburb name to Menai in 1910. Another Australian Bangor is located in South Australia. Menai Bridge is a town opposite the original Bangor, on the Menai Straits in Wales. When Menai expanded, the eastern section was renamed Bangor in 1976.
