Riverwood is home to a strong and growing community, offering easy access to public transport and the airport

Running alongside Salt Pan Creek, the suburb is known for its parks, fishing spots and walking tracks through semi-urban wetlands, native habitats and mangrove forests.


The Department is working closely with the City of Canterbury-Bankstown Council, Georges River Council and State agencies to plan for the Riverwood Precinct and help fast-track the jobs, infrastructure and services needed to support current and future communities.

We are also working with the NSW Land and Housing Corporation to plan for the Riverwood Estate State Significant Precinct which currently accommodates around 1,000 social housing dwellings on over 30 hectares of government-owned land.
