Suburb Profiles

Castle Towers

CASTLE HILL is a picturesque suburb possibly named because of the fine views from the hilly areas in the district.

Filled with restaurants and cafes, this would have to be the centre point of activity in the Hills District. Venture out and enjoy the nightlife as streets blossom with a lively atmosphere. Classy bars and clubs offer a convenient place to enjoy an evening out with friends. Enjoy the tranquility of living close to the hills, yet with public transport close enough to take you right into the heart of the city with ease. The large Castle Towers Shopping Centre is a very busy local hub, with large department stores such as Myer and David Jones, and Greater Union cinemas. Along with the food court there is the Piazza, where you can enjoy alfresco dining at a number of restaurants. 

As you would expect from a very family oriented neighbourhood there are plenty of good quality schools in the suburb.  Aside from well reputed public primary and high schools, Castle Hill is home to Gilroy College, Oakhill College, St Angela's Catholic Primary, St Bernadette's Catholic Primary and the Hills Adventist College.

There is also no shortage of local parks and recreation areas, and it offers a diverse range of sporting clubs and good sports facilities to support these clubs.

The suburb also offers diverse living with ever changing streetscapes catering for both first home buyers right through to luxurious, up market living. Castle Hill enjoys leafy surrounds and there are plenty of large blocks ideal for families to live and grow. 

Castle Hill Show is held each year, around March.  It is always well attended by the locals, and is a scaled down version of the Royal Easter Show.

CASTLE HILL
Kellyville

KELLYVILLE is named after Hugh Kelly, who owned the Kellyville Estate. Kelly owned a hotel on the corner of Wrights and Windsor Roads called the 'Bird-In-Hand'. Originally, the area had been known as 'There and Nowhere' followed by 'Irish Town' for the clan of Kellys that lived in the area. After Kelly's death in 1884, John Fitzgerald Burns, James Green and George Withers purchased portions of several early land grants, which were subdivided into farmlets as part of the 'Kellyville Estate', thereby giving the suburb its name.

For most of the 20th century, Kellyville was semi-rural. From the 1960s to the 1980s about 900 homes were developed in an area around Acres Road, known locally as 'The Village'. More recently, major developments such as Kellyville Plaza have encouraged residential growth.

Kellyville Plaza features a Coles supermarket a Woolworths supermarket and Liquor store and 22 specialty shops including restaurants and cafes. Other shopping needs are met by the various shops located on a light commercial strip in an area known as 'The Village' on Windsor Road, Kellyville. Kellyville Pets, on Windsor Road, is a large and diverse pet store with a well renowned reputation that stretches beyond the Hills.

Bernie Mullane Sports Complex was a welcome addition to the area and is always a hive of activity. It features a gymnasium, indoor basketball courts, outdoor basketball courts, netball facilities, tennis courts, and playing fields.

It offers easy access to the M2 and the M7, and express city buses are available.

In 2019 we expect the opening of the much anticipated North West Rail Link.  Kellyville will have it's own station with multi-storey car park on the corner of Samantha Riley Drive and Old Windsor Road.  This new infrastructure is bringing in a mass of high rise apartment complexes many with retail on the lower level and/or drive thru takeaway venues. 

 

KELLYVILLE
Beaumont Hills

BEAUMONT HILLS is a relatively small suburb, only 3 kilometres in area and was originally part of Kellyville. The initial development was created by AV Jennings, around the Arnold Janssen Drive area and grew from there. Officially established as a suburb in 2002 Beaumont Hills features a number of housing estates. 'The Sanctuary' located to the west is fronted by a natural creek reserve. 'The Outlook' is at the centre. The suburb is developed with a range of house styles while still offering a quiet lifestyle. Turkey Nest Park on the highest point has panoramic views all the way to the Blue Mountains.

The Beaumont Hills Public School opened in 2001 on The Parkway. It sits beside the Community Centre where they cater for before and after school care. The Centre also runs many activities such as dancing and martial arts classes after school and on weekends.

The area has its own shopping centre - Beaumont Hills Shopping Village. The anchor tenant is a Super IGA and Liquor outlet alongside 13 specialty stores including restaurants. The suburb is also located within close proximity to Rouse Hill Town Centre in Rouse Hill, which features over 200 retail stores.

Hillsbus provides several bus routes that run through Beaumont Hills (Mungerie Road, The Parkway, Brampton Drive) on a regular basis.

BEAUMONT HILLS
Rouse Hill

ROUSE HILL encompasses what was originally known as the Village of Aberdour along with the area originally known as Vinegar Hill following the convict rebellion of 1804. Vinegar Hill Post Office was renamed as Rouse Hill Post Office in 1858. The new name was chosen after the estate of Richard Rouse (1774-1852), a prominent free settler who arrived in the colony in 1801. His first grant here was in 1802 and his second grant was in 1816. Rouse built his home, Rouse Hill House, from 1813-18. Service wings and an arcaded courtyard were added circa 1863. The garden is probably the oldest intact garden in Australia.

Rouse Hill is noteworthy in Australian history as the site of the main battle during an Irish rebellion, known as the Castle Hill rebellion or the second Battle of Vinegar Hill. The exact site of the Battle is uncertain but a monument with a plaque commemorating the event can be seen within Castlebrook Lawn Cemetery on Windsor Road in Kellyville Ridge.

Opposite Castlebrook on Windsor Rd is the popular Rouse Hill Town Centre. It comprises of Woolworths and Coles supermarkets, a food terrace, and 210 specialty stores as well as Big W, Target, Reading Cinemas, a Community Centre, Library, Medical Centre, commercial and residential accommodation and the Secret Garden.

Rouse Hill Village Centre which opened in 1999, is a small shopping centre located on Windsor Road. This complex features a Franklins supermarket, specialty shops and restaurants. It is the home of the Meridien Rouse Hill office. The Terrace is another small shopping centre which was opened on Panmure Street in 2004.

Along with Rouse Hill Public School and Iron Bark Ridge Public School, the suburb is home to Rouse Hill Anglican College. Opening in 2009 was Rouse Hill High School. Our Lady of the Angels Primary Catholic School opened in 2010 and is on the corner of Withers Road and Wellgate Ave.
