A short drive South of the bustling CBD, The Shire is often a forgotten oasis, but definitely a neighbourhood worth a little more recognition. Beyond the beautiful beaches this coastal suburb is dotted with boutiques, restaurants and cafes, all with different offerings.
To save the confusion, and somewhat plan your day for you, I’ve (Becky Hutley, Founder and Owner of Hutwoods) listed my top 6 pit stops for the perfect weekend.
Of course, it wouldn’t be right not to start with our little shop! Hutwoods is a luxury wood wick candle and home fragrance store, all of our beautiful products handmade on site in our Caringbah HQ.
With a range of scents to suit your calming needs, or gifting requirements, we also have on offer several other boutique homewares including: ceramics, vases, dried florals, herbal teas, and greeting cards.
A one-stop-shop for those who love neutral tones, minimalist design and beautiful scents.
I believe that our contemporary range provides an option for every customer and always ensure your experience is not only remembered, but worth sharing with friends and family.

You can visit the Hutwoods Flagship Store located at 91 Parraweena Road, Caringbah. Monday - Friday: 9am - 4pm and Saturday: 10am - 4pm.
For all your furniture and homewares needs, I wouldn’t look past Ur Place.
A predominantly monochromatic design, the store is filled with pieces from new and reputable Australian designers, however they are lucky enough to stock some beautiful fair trade and sustainable homewares from across the globe too.
Carefully curated with an artisanal eye, the concept store is bound to inspire your next interior makeover. A mixture of aesthetics, colour, and texture, they are all about quality over quantity, appealing to each individual customer in a different way.
You can find Ur Place at unit 1, 91 parraweena road caringbah.
From within this large, open plan, creative space, Pago & Co provide bespoke packages for gifting, personal and or corporate.
With a love for local Australian brands, the team also goes that extra mile to provide pre-arranged baskets for him, for her, for baby, or for them, no matter the occasion or holiday.
Looking for something a little more personalised?
The team are more than happy to work with you to create a tailored gift that will leave a lasting impression. Pago & Co was founded to eliminate the stress it can take to find that perfect gift, which is of the highest quality, whilst ensuring the end product is impeccably presented.

For those of you with a green thumb, you can’t look past Botanica Lane.
A lush haven of over 100 different species of plants, as well as gorgeous pots to house them in, you’ll be able to turn your humble abode into the jungle you’ve always dreamed of.
With complimentary gifts and plant care products, the team can cater to any of your plant babies that may need a pick me up. Keep an eye on their websites and socials, as Botanica Lane often hosts workshops and events within their funky little space.
You'll find Botanica Lane at 29 Marshall Rd, Kirrawee.
One for those Sunday brunch cravings, The Nuns Pool is a beautiful cafe overlooking the gorgeous Shelly Park.
Prioritising fresh seasonal produce, their breakfast and lunch menu never disappoints, and it’s hard to look past that cabinet full of sweets too!
Perfect for the morning coffee run, or a slow start on the weekend, The Nuns Pool can also accommodate for weddings and functions.
A hamptons-esque beachside restaurant, The Pines is popular for its food, service, and spectacular views overlooking the iconic North Cronulla.
Offering diners both a la carte and degustation style menus, the luxurious interiors and booth seating makes for a rather high-end dining experience.
A touch of the CBD by the beach.
