"Peace and Serenity"

Riverview takes its name from its location as it offers a 'view' of the Lane Cove River and is the home of St Ignatius College.

We are very lucky in Riverview to be surrounded by parks and waterways. Marjorie York Reserve is a playground by the local York's shops and is very popular with families. Tambourine Bay Reserve is situated at the end of Tambourine Bay Road and contains barbecue and picnic facilities, as well as a playground. It also offers wonderful views over Tambourine Bay Road and is the main hub for bushwalks to Longueville, Linley Point, Hunters Hill and around the bay. Burns Bay Reserve lies in West Riverview and is used for children's soccer matches in the cooler months of the year. It is similar to Tambourine Bay Reserve offering picnic and barbecue facilities and a playground. There is also a small recreation area at the end of the walkway leading from Flaumont Avenue, complete with benches and a swing set.

The only 'traffic' in Riverview is local. For this reason it is a very peacefully quiet place to live.

Sydney Buses provides services between Riverview and Sydney CBD through the 253 (Freeway) and 254 (Pacific Hwy) services, departing roughly every quarter-hour in peak morning periods and every hour in off-peak periods. Tambourine Bay Road is the main thoroughfare through the area, and leads from Lane Cove's shopping district. River Road West runs along Riverview's northern border, and connects to Lane Cove West and Gladesville to the west and Longueville, North Sydney and Sydney CBD to the east.
