Electoral district of Riverstone
New South Wales—Legislative Assembly
Electoral district of Riverstone (brown) within Sydney
|State||New South Wales|
|Area||73.42 km2 (28.3 sq mi)|
Riverstone is a 73 km² urban and semi-rural electorate in Sydney's north west, taking in the suburbs of Acacia Gardens, Glenwood, Parklea, Quakers Hill, Riverstone, Schofields, Stanhope Gardens, The Ponds and parts of Kellyville Ridge, Marsden Park, Rouse Hill and Vineyard.
Much of the electorate is situated in the growing north-west sector which has been poorly served in transport, health and police resources. A changing demographic towards the eastern side of the electorate (Glenwood, Stanhope Gardens, Kellyville Ridge, Rouse Hill) may push the former Labor-held seat to a long-term Liberal trend in voting patterns.
