Riverhills QLD


Postcode: 4074

Located approximately 14 kilometres south-west of the Brisbane CBD, Riverhills is an integral part of a largely successful land development that commenced in 1959 with Jindalee and includes Mt. Ommaney, Jamboree Heights, Middle Park, Westlake and Sinnamon Park. Originally known as the ‘Centenary Project’ the area is now more commonly referred to as the Centenary suburbs.

Although the majority of the original housing in Riverhills was constructed during the late 1970s and early 1980s, within the last 10 years there have been new releases of elevated land for sale behind Riverhills Road. A number of new developments, which include townhouse complexes, are proving popular.

This has enticed many new families into the suburb, dramatically increasing the suburb’s population. The subsequent construction of new up-market dwellings and demand for housing in the area is likely to increase the overall value of property in the suburb in the future.

Riverhills is a popular suburb for growing families, as the area offers a wide range of services and facilities for all family members within close vicinity.

The Centenary suburbs are promoted as a fully planned development with extensive services and facilities, including primary and high schools, the recently expanded Centenary regional shopping centre, police and fire stations and many sporting clubs, including two golf courses.
