Hills Marketplace was established in 1923. The Hills family used the property to produce flowers, which they sold direct to the public.
Almost 100 years later, and not much has changed, with Hills The Flower Market growing some of its flowers on site and continuing to be the focal point of everything.
Surrounding the flower market is an eclectic mix of businesses, with various retail, industrial and commercial businesses supported by two restaurant cafes that serve quality breakfast and lunch menus with sit down and takeaway options.
The 270 bus from Wynyard and the 197 Gordon Station to macquarie University stops at the back entrance to the Marketplace on Myoora Road.
If you’re driving, Hills Marketplace has free parking and a Tesla charging station.
See you at Hills, 287 Mona Vale Road Terrey Hills, Sunday 26 November, 1 – 3pm!
WHO’S TERREY HILLS?
Terrey Hills is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 25 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district in the local government area of Northern Beaches Council. It is part of the Forest District and Northern Beaches region.
Terrey Hills is a very leafy suburb and in some areas semi-rural, with many people boarding their horses in the area. Terrey Hills owes its name to the two original land holders Samuel Hills and Obediah James Terrey. Obediah Terrey acquired 640 acres (2.6 km2) in 1881 and Samuel Hills owned 100 acres (0.40 km2) nearby.
The area was used by Indigenous people prior to European settlement, and rock carvings exist in some places. One set of carvings is located near Larool Road and depicts hunting scenes with kangaroos, human figures and footprints.All Gigs
