Hurstville Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, although population was minimal until the late 1800s. Growth took place from the 1880s, spurred by the opening of the railway line. Hurstville City Centre developed as the major retail hub of the Georges River Council area. Expansion continued during the 1920s and 1930s. Significant residential and commercial development occurred during the post-war years, with mainly medium density housing built. Substantial growth took place from the early 1990s, with the population quadrupling between 1991 and 2011 as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area, particularly high density housing.
Major features of the area include Westfield Hurstville Shopping Centre, Hurstville Entertainment Centre, Hurstville Museum & Gallery, Waratah Private Hospital, Georges River Council Hurstville Service Centre and the Hurstville railway station.
