Gillieston Heights has shown enormous growth in recent years with the opening of a number of new housing estates and the creation of the Hunter Expressway and entry/exit just 5 minutes from the suburb. More and more, we are seeing people move from Newcastle into this area with housing more affordable and access to the city increased. The suburb features a primary school and general store come bottle shop, as well as an array of cycle and walking tracks and a community centre, all of which provide for lifestyle living.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and pay respects to their elders past, present and emerging. The suburb of Gillieston Heights falls on the traditional lands of the Mindaribba people.
