Rouse Hill

Welcome home to Rouse Hill

An emerging community hub in Sydney’s north west growth corridor. Rouse Hill is located approximately 42 kilometres from the Sydney central business district and overlaps the local government area’s of Blacktown City Council and The Hills Council.

The suburb was first established in 1802, but was originally known as Vinegar Hill. The name change occurred in 1858 which was suggested by Governor Lachlan Macquarie and was chosen after the estate of Richard Rouse who was a prominent free settler who arrived in the colony in 1801 and was given two land grants in the area.

The new Rouse Hill was transformed into a community hub with the opening of the Rouse Hill Town Centre in March 2008, since then the area has seen massive growth.
