Once known as Sunning Hill Farm, the suburb of Narwee was named after an Aboriginal word for “sun.”

The suburb’s railway station was first established in 1931, and today is a stop on the Airport & South Line of the Sydney Trains network. Narwee Primary School is situated here – the suburb once had a high school, but the land has since been developed for residential use.

Adjacent to the train station, Broadarrow Road serves as the suburb’s main street and its commercial hub, being the main shopping district. The suburb is also close to other shopping centres in Roselands, Hurstville, Miranda and Bankstown.

These advantages have made Narwee very popular with tenants; thus, the suburb’s vacancy rates have remained at an extremely tight 1%. The weekly rent rate comes in at $423, and investors can reap returns of 3.4%.
