"Riverside small town"

Hadspen has so much to offer young families. Situated right on the South Esk River there is a stunning river walk, great parks spotted all over the suburb, a great skate park and little shopping hub. The community is super helpful and kind. You will always see kids on their bikes or playing with friends.
