Located 12 kilometres south of the Sydney CBD (Central Business District) is Kingsgrove NSW. It is a very conveniently located Southern Sydney suburb that lies across the areas of the Rockdale and the Georges River Council.
A little history on the area before we get to present day Kingsgrove. It is said that the first inn built in the area was the Man of Kent on Kingsgrove Road, near Morris Avenue and was licensed on 1 July 1850. The licensee Evan Evans, was formerly a sea captain. His daughter Maria married Thomas Smithson, who manufactured snuff and tobacco from premises in Stoney Creek Road. Smithson also had a vineyard on the site of todays Bexley Golf Course. Kingsgrove railway station opened in 1931, which is when development in the area really began. (Source Wikipedia)
Back to present day Kingsgrove, the main shopping centre is located on Kingsgrove Road, south of Kingsgrove railway station. A small group of shops on Stoney Creek Road is known as the Kingsway locality, this is where we are, and Kingsgrove RSL Club is located in Brocklehurst Lane, just behind Kingsgrove Road. There are commercial and industrial developments located on the northern side of the railway line, west of Kingsgrove Road and there are also some commercial developments scattered along Stoney Creek and Canterbury roads. It's a good mix.
Kingsgrove area primarily runs from Stoney Creek Road in the south to Canterbury Road in the north with roughly a 5km stretch through the middle. Kingsgrove Road also has entrance and exit ramps for the M5 Motorway, with easy access towards Sydney Airport and Sydney CBD. Moorefields Road and William Street are other main roads in the suburb.
Kingsgrove railway station is on the East Hills line of the Sydney Trains network and Sydney Buses also service the suburb from the Kingsgrove Bus Depot on Richland Street.
