The Hills Shire (map), commonly referred to as The Sydney Hills is located in Sydney’s northern suburbs – about 30 kilometres from the Sydney CBD. The Sydney Hills is bounded by Hawkesbury City in the north, Hornsby Shire in the east, Parramatta City in the south and Blacktown City in the west.
The Sydney Hills occupies an area of 380 square kilometres stretching from Baulkham Hills in the south to Wisemans Ferry in the north. The Shire is centrally located in Sydney’s North, adjacent to the M2 Hills and M7 Motorways and the proposed North West Metro Link and North West growth centre – a major growth area for the Sydney basin. Two thirds of the Shire is rural land, some of which is used for farming and other agricultural industries. Locating in such a central location means you can tap into the growing commercial business areas between the North Shore and the Sydney Hills; the legal community of Parramatta and the rapidly expanding transport, warehousing and distribution hub growing up along the M7.
The Sydney Hills, with Norwest Business Park at its heart, is one of Sydney’s hidden gems for business. With a rapidly growing economy - totalling $7.7 Billion in 2011 - and a 100,000 strong workforce, the Sydney Hills is fast becoming known as an elite service hub for businesses providing professional and financial services to companies located across Western Sydney. Sydney Hills has a major employment node located near brand new homes and planned neighbourhoods, some of the state’s top schools, and offering a relaxed lifestyle surrounded by parks, gardens and bushland.
