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.
