Known internationally as God’s Country, the Sutherland Shire proudly hosts Sylvania Waters as the jewel in her Crown. Sylvania Waters forms the southern and western boundaries of Gwawley Bay and is located at the eastern end of the Georges River and has Taren Point to the east.
Much of the waterfront areas of Sylvania Waters were reclaimed from Gwawley Bay with many streets and houses built on the three artificial islands.
The main road in Sylvania Waters, Belgrave Esplanade, stretches from Tom Uglys Bridge to Captain Cook Bridge – two of the three main northern entry points for the Sutherland Shire across the Georges River.
Sylvania Waters is mostly residential with three small shopping strips located on Belgrave Esplanade, near Box Road, near Murrumbidgee Avenue and near Richmond Avenue.
Doltone House is a function centre close to Sylvania Shopping Village.
