Hurstville City Centre is the commercial part of the suburb of Hurstville.
Hurstville is named from the words "hurst", meaning "wooded eminence", and "ville", meaning "town".
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, although population was minimal until the late 1800s.
Growth took place from the 1880s, spurred by the opening of the railway line.
Hurstville City Centre developed as the major retail hub of Hurstville City.
Expansion continued during the 1920s and 1930s.
Significant residential and commercial development occurred during the post-war years, with mainly medium density housing built.
The population trebled between 1991 and 2006, a result of a large number of new dwellings being added to the area, particularly high density housing.
Major features of the area include Westfield Shopping Centre (Hurstville), Hurstville Entertainment Centre, St George Regional Museum and the Council offices.
