Here's how you get to Sutherland Downs.
Sutherland Downs is about 12 minutes from a medium-sized supermarket and 7 minutes from the well-stocked general store in Coomba Park. However, to allow you to only get in the car for fun reasons, we recommend doing a ‘Click and Collect’ on your way here. We have an abundance of fridge, freezer, and pantry space for you to use.

Take the M1 Motorway north out of Sydney, continue to the end, and turn right at the roundabout. Then follow the signs towards the Pacific Highway, heading north over the Hexam Bridge.
