Oatley lies 16km southwest of the Sydney CBD on the north bank of the Georges River. Even though it’s some distance from the CBD, access takes around half an hour via the Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra line.

While the suburb is located away from major arterial roads, they are easily accessible by King Georges Road, which also leads south through Sutherland Shire and the Royal National Park. Oatley is well served for amenities, with a shopping precinct, a number of schools and easy access to the river.

Units here are more affordable than those of neighbouring riverside suburb Connells Point, and Oatley's unit market has been outperforming its house market for capital growth and rental yields in recent times.
