We provide sponsorship money valued to $10,000 to the Festival, including barricades, staff, security and waste removal. We're always proud to be involved in the Festival and to share in and celebrate the great community spirit that is at the heart of Riverwood and its residents.
The Riverwood Community Centre contributes so much to this sense of community, providing opportunities for friendship and support to so many local residents and families.
The Riverwood Community Festival takes place in our fabulous Salt Pan Creek Wetlands. Once an underused paddock, the area has been transformed into a vibrant, interactive parkland for our community to enjoy
Located just 18 kilometres south-west of the Sydney CBD, Riverwood is shared by both Canterbury and Hurstville local government areas (LGA's). With a train station in the centre of the shopping precinct and a popular route for buses, Riverwood is never too far away from those who want to experience the peace and laid-back atmosphere that is at the heart of fabulous Riverwood.
