"Quiet Area great for families"

Riverhills is a quiet suburb in Centenary suburban area.We found the local schools to be very good.State and private options available.Our family have lived here 20 years. It offers lead off dog parks, skate and bmx tracks walking tracks on the river which is lovely for the kids or for exercise . On a negative side public transport is disappointing and hasn't improved in 10 years even though there are numerous bus stops local.Its a long often unreliable service.If u work in the city your best and fastest options are cycle or drive to Darra train station about 10 mins away and commute from there.Traffic can be another issue getting out of riverhills in mornings and afternoons.Even though these are challenges i believe Riverhills is still a great place to raise a family.It safe, friendly peaceful and affordable.

"Its all here!"

Riverhills is part of the Centenary suburbs which is a great community to be in with everything you need easily only 5 minutes away. My family including my husband and 2 children love our local primary school at Middle Park which is a 2 minute walk from our home.
We have loads of local sports clubs, shopping centres, great cafes and restaurants. There are several schools to choose from including 4 primary, and 1 high school.
There is plenty of green space which we spend a lot of time walking, running or biking, with parks, playgrounds and bush tracks all close by.

"Beautiful, leafy suburb"

Nestled in between Middle Park and Westlake is Riverhills, a very quiet, leafy, friendly area. Very safe at all hours of the day, great school, close to shops and public transport.
