Three Rivers Proper is a suburb of Vereeniging, Gauteng, South Africa.

The suburb lies on the eastern side of the Klip River and is bordered by Three Rivers East to the east and Three Rivers to the north. Its southern border is formed by a wildlife conservation area and the Sugarbush River and the Vaal River on its western side.

Many of Vereeniging's wealthiest families live here, and together with Three Rivers East contribute to the majority of the tax income by local municipality. Many of its most notable properties lie on the banks of the Sugarbush- and Vaal- Rivers and has been home to many public figures, including F.W. de Klerk.

The regional River Square Shopping mall is located in Three Rivers Proper and it is also home to Milton Primary School and the Midvaal Private Hospital.
