Suburb Overview

Riverwood is a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Riverwood is located 18 kilometres south-west of the Sydney central business district and is part of the St George area. Riverwood is split between the local government areas of the City of Hurstville and the City of Canterbury.

The area was originally known as Herne Bay and comprised small land grants between 30 and 80 acres . When the East Hills railway line came through the area in 1931, the station was called Herne Bay. The area was subdivided in 1919 and redeveloped in 1942 during World War 2, when the Government of Australia and the Allied Works Council establish an army base hospital barracks for the United States Army, the 118 General Hospital. The hospital was built at a cost of one-million pounds and consisted of 490 barrack type buildings containing approximately four-thousand-two-hundred and fifty beds. The hospital was staffed by doctors and nurses from "The Johns Hopkins University " Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

The Americans, who at the time, were using the Hydro Majestic Hotel in Medlow Bath as a hospital, relocated and moved into the first section of the Herne Bay premises in May 1943. By November, 1700 beds were being utilised. The site was visited by General MacArthur, First Lady Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt, Artie Shaw

The suburb developed an unsavoury reputation for poverty, overcrowding and violence, and its name was later changed to Riverwood in 1957, in large part to remove the stigma associated with living there. This helped to change the reputation of the area. From the 1950s onwards, purpose-built utilitarian public housing apartment blocks and freestanding bungalows replaced most of the former military buildings on the northern side of the railway line, while the southern part of the suburb was mostly privately developed.

The main shopping centre is located on Belmore Road and Thurlow Streets, near Riverwood railway station. Riverwood Plaza is a small shopping centre on Belmore Road that features Woolworths and Coles supermarkets, discount retailer Go-Lo, specialty shops and a food court.

A strip of on-street businesses line Belmore Road on both the northern and southern sides of Riverwood railway station.

Riverwood railway station is on the East Hills line of the City Rail network, with Padstow to the west and Narwee to the east.

Although the locally recognisable red buses of Punchbowl Bus Company are stabled at their headquarters on Hannans Road Riverwood, the suburb itself does not act as a bus terminus. A number of bus routes, however, operate through Riverwood, including

The NightRide N20 service operates between Riverwood and Rockdale .

The M5 South Western Motorway crosses Belmore Road in Riverwood, however provides only an off-ramp for northeast-bound traffic, and an on-ramp for southwest-bound traffic.
