Gymea Bay is a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South WalesAustralia. Gymea Bay is 27&nbps;kilometres south of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Sutherland Shire. The postcode is 2227, which it shares with the adjacent suburb of Gymea.

Gymea Bay takes its name from the small bay on the north shore of the Port Hacking estuary (also known as the Port Hacking River). The suburb’s extremities are defined by Forest Road on the northeast, Avenel Road on the north, Dents Creek on the west, and the waters of North West Arm and the bay itself to the south. The area is characterised by large amounts of verdant bushland. However, since the 1990s, invasions of feral deer from the Royal National Park have begun to negatively affect the ground cover underneath the tree canopy.

Schools

The suburb is home to a public primary school, Gymea Bay Public School, the largest primary school in the Sutherland Shire.

Recreation

Gymea Bay is home to the heritage-listed Gymea Bay Baths, off Ellesmere Road. Gymea Bay Swimming Club have been using the baths for over 40 years. The bay and Port Hacking estuary are used extensively for watersports such as wakeboarding and water skiing.
