Yowie Bay is a small, quiet suburb in the Sutherland Shire, just to the south of Miranda and approximately 29km from the Sydney CBD. It was originally named “Ewey” (from the Aboriginal name meaning “place of echoes”) in 1827. Located on the Yowie Bay waterway, many residents of Yowie Bay enjoy spectacular Port Hacking River views.
Yowie Bay has number of shops, including a café, general store, marina and sailing club, but it’s also only a 5 minute drive to the plethora of stores and restaurants in Miranda and Gymea. In addition to that, it’s only a 15 minute drive to the beautiful beach side variety of Cronulla.
Yowie Bay is serviced by buses to surrounding suburbs with access to further trains, buses and taxis – around a 1 hour commute into the CBD.
Yowie Bay is slightly removed from any main thoroughfares – it’s a quiet, slow paced community which is still well connected to the rest of the Sutherland Shire and Yowie Bay Public School holds a very respected reputation. Yowie Bay is perfect for families and couples of all ages.
Yowie Bay typically has large family homes, some traditional and original, some new or newly renovated, some capturing fabulous water views and others with deep water frontages and elaborate boat houses.
