Gladesville Town Centre


Gladesville Town Centre comprises a diverse range of shops, business, entertainment and facilities that serve the Hunters Hill municipality and the southern part of the Ryde local government area. 

The Centre straddles busy Victoria Road and includes landmarks such as St Andrews and Christ Church and Gladesville Public School and RSL.


The future of Gladesville Town Centre and the Victoria Road corridor is based on the shared vision of the City of Ryde and Hunter’s Hill Councils. 

The two councils aim to revitalise the town centre and breathe life into the Victoria Road corridor; to create a more inclusive and attractive place in which to live, visit, work and invest. 

Gladesville Town Centre will be transformed by a diverse mix of retail, commercial, residential, leisure opportunities and enhanced pedestrian links and public domain spaces. 

The Victoria Road Corridor to have 4 distinct character areas:

  • Monash Road - will be a village scaled neighbourhood hub
  • North Gladesville - will be a memorable tree-lined commercial strip
  • Gladesville Town Centre - will retain its character and include a range of facilities and services. The centre will be safe, vibrant and easy to move around and do business
  • South Gladesville - will be a green avenue and ‘front door’ to Gladesville.
