Description

Revesby Heights, a suburb of local government area City of Canterbury-Bankstown, is 23 kilometres south-west of the Sydney central business district, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is a part of the South-western Sydney region. Revesby Heights is located on the northern bank of the Georges River and west of Little Salt Pan Creek. # History Revesby was named in 1913 in honour of Sir Joseph Banks (1743–1820), the famous botanist who sailed with Captain James Cook on the Endeavour, when he discovered the east coast of Australia in 1770. Banks had inherited his father’s estate of Revesby Abbey, in Lincolnshire England, so he was known as the Squire of Revesby. He is also commemorated in the Sir Joseph Banks High School in Turvey Street.Revesby Heights was known as Hero's Hill in recognition of returned service men who obtained affordable government housing in the area. The Hero's Hill servicemen's club was founded soon after these returned service men settled in the area after World War II. This club later became known as Revesby Heights Ex-Servicemen's Club. This club ceased trading in June 2013. # Weather # Things to do
