Hillcrest at a glance

Hillcrest, formerly a sleepy village, has now become a booming suburb incorporated into the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality. The town celebrated its centenary in 1995 and has since then seen an incredible increase in inhabitants migrating from more central areas in Durban and the North Coast.    The Upper Highway is a suburb in Durban, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa and is part of the outer west suburbs of Durban. Durban city centre is only 30 kilometres away and approximately 80 kilometres from KwaZulu Natal’s provisional capital, Pietermaritzburg. Both are easily accessed on either the N3 or M13. Do not forget, the beach is just 30 minutes away.    With the Drakensberg mountains as the backdrop and the bustling city of Durban in the foreground, the greater Upper Highway area includes the suburbs of Drummond, Monteseel, Assagay, Summerveld, Shongweni, Alverstone, Botha’s Hill, Hillcrest, Hillcrest Park, Hilldene, Kloof, Gillitts, Winston Park, Waterfall, Forest Hills, Crestholme and Crestview.    Topographically, it offers many hills, valleys and gorges, nature reserves along with wide open spaces. Known for its village atmosphere, there is a good sense of community, and it has always been considered a wonderful place to raise a family.    Our village has matured into a beautiful town, with many renowned restaurants, shops, and facilities to rival the best. Residents are spoiled for choice, with the numerous suburbs catering to a variety of lifestyles, from country living on small holdings to single residential homes and estate living. Outdoor activities include horse riding; polo; show jumping; golf; hiking; cycling; jogging; canoeing and so much more. Hillcrest also boasts a private hospital providing quality health care with an extensive range of top medical facilities and offerings designed to meet the growing needs of the community.
