Riverstone Terraces (commonly referred to as simply 'Riverstone') is a suburb of Upper Hutt in the Hutt Valley of New Zealand's North Island, perched on a hill previously known as Craig's Flat,[1] above the Hutt River.[2][3]

Although mostly residential, the suburb also contains a bush walk, a children's playground, and a small convenience store - the nearest supermarket is in central Upper Hutt, 4.9 - 8.1km away (depending on where you are in the suburb). The suburb's streets are named after notable Upper Hutt residents, including Frankie Stevens, James Nairn, and Paul Swain.

The suburb is served by a peak time Metlink bus service, route 113.[4]
