Castle Hill is located in the Hills District of Sydney, 30km north-west of the CBD. Currently access to the city is via the M2 via car or direct busses, however by mid-2019 the suburb will have its own train station on the North West Rail Link, which will run between Rouse Hill and Epping.
Most houses are double brick or brick veneer and constructed after the 1970’s and range from run-of-the-mill 3 bedroom homes to modern, 6 bedroom palatial mansions. A number of apartment complexes and estates have recently sprung up in the area, several of which are targeting the over 55s demographic.
Most shops and restaurants are in the Castle Towers Shopping Centre (known locally as ‘Towers’) and along Terminus Street and Old Northern Road. The new underground train station will be around the intersection of these two roads which will reinvigorate the area as new shops and cafés pop up. Event Cinemas opened its premium five screen cinema complex featuring state of the art digital projectors at Towers in 2009, which complemented its existing 10 screens. AMF Ten Pin Bowling and Laser Skirmish and the sports and fitness options below provide alternative entertainment options.
