Location Demographics

The suburb of Rouse Hill provides a little getaway from the city rush as it is located 43 kilometres north-west of Sydney’s Central Business District. Found within the renowned state of New South Wales, this suburb was originally named the Village of Aberdour in the 1800s and is recognised for its heritage as the place to have welcomed the first ferry service called Rose Hill Packet. It is highly regarded for its rich history and for its prosperous town centre.

Rouse Hill is under both the Hills Shire and as well as the City of Blacktown Council. The total population was calculated to reach around 11 400 people with a fairly even ratio of males and females, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The median age is 34 years old with a total of 3 100 families in the area. To add, most individuals fall between the 35 to 40-year-old age group.

Travel & Infrastructure

Completed in May 2019, the Rouse Hill Station is part of the Sydney Metro and has been built as part of the elevated Skytrain route. It is located just directly outside the town centre with an estimated journey of an hour to the city. Bus services offer an alternative method of transport with Hillsbus taking passengers to North Sydney, Parramatta, Macquarie Park and Castle Hill whilst Busways provides services to Blacktown and Riverstone. Drivers are quickly connected to Windsor Road for uninterrupted trips. 

Towards the end of last year, the NSW Government announced a Rouse Hill Regional Park expansion. As one of Sydney’s best regional parks, the project aims for a 25-hectare expansion and to bring more people to the parkland by making it a relaxing space for picnics and exercising. The Sydney Metro is also one of the State’s Significant Projects which will include 39 metro stations and more than 90kms of a new metro rail starting from Rouse Hill to Bankstown. 



For all things shopping-related, the flourishing Rouse Hill Town Centre is the main stop with a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces that capture a proper town square. There are around 245 stores and services available that range from major retailers, cafes and entertainment venues. Just 11 to 12kms away, the Castle Towers Shopping Centre and the Westpoint Blacktown Shopping Centre both provide even more shops, cinemas, food outlets and a bowling area. When it comes to dining, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. The Fiddler on Commercial Road has classic bistro meals and outdoor seating while the Australian Hotel and Brewery on Annangrove Road serves signature dishes and drinks.

There are a handful of schools that have been established to accommodate the rapidly growing number of families and residents. Within the vicinity, the Rouse Hill Public School, Rouse Hill Anglican College and Rouse Hill High School are popular choices as they are all a quick from the city centre.

For university students, the Western Sydney University Nirimba Campus is around 8kms by car while the Parramatta Campus is close to 20kms.

Drawing in tourists and local travellers, there are a few heritage-listed sites that can be found throughout Rouse Hill such as the Hunting Lodge and the Royal Oak Inn. In addition, the Rouse Hill House and Farm are one of the oldest properties in Australia that can still be visited today. There is never a dull moment with multiple events and community workshops happening at the Town Centre. Throughout the winter season, stop by at the ice rink at Market Square for residents of all ages to enjoy. There is also a free BBQ every fortnight for the young people of the community to get together and free fitness classes for everybody to join in.
