Welcome to Caringbah


Caringbah is a suburb, in southern Sydney, located 24km south of the Sydney central business district in the local government  area of Sutherland Shire.

Caringbah stretches from Woolooware Bay on the Georges river to Yowie Bay and Burraneer Bay on the Port Hacking estuary. A number of Caringbah localities have been declared as separate suburbs but still share the postcode 2229. These suburbs are Taren Point to the north  on the Georges River and Port Hacking, Lilli Pilli, Dolans Bay to the south on the Port Hacking River.


Caringbah is a central suburb of the Sutherland Shire, considering some of the main roads intersect here. President Avenue and the Kingsway both run from Sutherland via Miranda in the west, to the popular beachside suburb of Cronulla in the east. Taren Point Road leads north to the Captain Cook Bridge, St George area and further north to the Sydney CBD.

Caringbah railway station is on the Cronulla branch of the Illawarra line on the City rail network. Caringbah bus service runs buses to Lilli Pilli and Westfield Miranda and Bus Link runs services to Cronulla and Westfield Miranda. Sydney buses provide bus services to Rockdale and Westfield Miranda, but there are only limited Sydney Buses services that travel into the commercial area near the railway station.

Burraneer Bay Marina is located on the western shore of Burraneer Bay.













Caringbah is home to the public district Sutherland Hospital

and Kareena Private Hospital.

Caringbah is an Aboriginal word for a pademelon wallaby. The suburb was originally called Highfield, but it is unclear whether this was a position description or whether it was named after an early resident. Caringbah was used from 1911, after the steam trams began operating between Cronulla and Sutherland.

Thomas Holt (1811-88) owned most of the land that stretched from Sutherland to Cronulla in the 1860s. Most of the area around Miranda  and Caringbah was used for market gardening from the 1880s. Caringbah was still used for orchards and farming until after World War II. The railway line to Cronulla opened in 1939.
