Riverstone is 48 kilometres (30 mi) west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Blacktown.
Riverstone remained small country town until the beginning of the 21st century when a housing boom made it part of the urban sprawl. On its northern side Riverstone still has a large and thriving industrial area. Poultry farming and intensive market gardening are also still important activities in the area.
Riverstone features two Public schools: Riverstone High School and Riverstone Public School. It also has three Private schools: Norwest Christian College (formerly known as Coverdale Christian School), St Johns Catholic School and Australian Christian College. Australian Christian College has two components: the on campus day school and the distance education school, which serves home educated students across New South Wales.
Riverstone is one of the few suburbs left in the Sydney region with a level crossing with old-fashioned boom gates. This view looking west onto the undeveloped flood-prone paddocks is popular with Sydney film and TV commercial makers as a stand-in for a small country railway station. The final parting scene in the film Beneath Clouds was shot there.
