Beverly Hills is a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Beverly Hills is located 17 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district and is part of the St George area. Beverly Hills lies across two local government areas, the City of Hurstville and the City of Canterbury. It is often colloquially referred to as "Bevo". The postcode is 2209, which is shared by Narwee.

Beverly Hills is mostly residential, consisting of many freestanding red brick and tile bungalows built in the years immediately after World War 2. Many of these feature late Art Deco design elements. Medium density flats have been built in the areas close to King Georges Road and Stoney Creek Road.

History

Beverly Hills was originally known as Dumbleton after a local farm in the area, circa 1830. This name was generally disliked by residents who lobbied to supplant it with a more glamorous alternative to coincide with the arrival of the East Hills railway line, which opened 31st December 1931. The name was changed to Beverly Hills, at a time when Beverly Hills in California, USA was becoming famous for being the home of many famous movie stars. Real estate developments followed in the 1930s and 1940s. The post office opened 1st October 1940.

Commercial Area

The main shopping strip is located on King Georges Road, near the Beverly Hills railway station. Commercial developments are also found scattered further along King Georges Road and along Stoney Creek Road. There are over 40 different cafe, restaurants and takeaways along King Georges Road, such as Chinese, Italian, Greek, German, Vietnamese and Australian cuisines. In 1955, Woolworths opened its first store in a supermarket format in Beverly Hills.

The area has all the features typical of Australian metropolitan localities: restaurants, retail shops, convenience stores, banks, real estate agents, a pub (the Beverly Hills Hotel), cinema, kindergarten, primary/high schools, Scouts, parks, leisure and health facilities.
