"Good value, doesn’t feel like a community"

We lived in Hillside for 5 years. You can buy a good quality house for much less than suburbs closer to the city. Close to Watergardens Shopping Centre and an easy train ride to the CBD, but don’t expect an easy car park. Very multi-cultural suburb. People keep to themselves,and it lacks a sense of community. Crime was starting to become an issue, particularly youth and crazy motorists.

"Larger Homes on Larger Blocks"

Hillside has great facilities, including childcare, medical and schools. Many parks and recreational areas are dotted through the many precincts of this suburb, including Cypress Rise, Banchory Grove, Parkwood Green, Bellevue Hill, Sugargum, Hillside 2000, and Regency Rise.
Mostly owner occupied home with a small amount of rentals. Wide roads, many accesses to freeway and low traffic congestion make this suburb easy to get around.
