Grose Vale is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is located in the City of Hawkesbury. It was previously known as Grose Wold North.

The suburb consists of mostly semi-rural properties around 5 to 10 acres (40,000 m2) in size. Entry into the suburb is via Grose Vale road running from Grose Wold to the East, and the village of Kurrajong to the North.


The suburb has no footpaths and only sparse street-lighting. Only the parts of Grose Vale nearest Kurrajong have town water or sewer lines. The majority of residents use tank water, either from rainfall or trucked in using tankers, and septic tanks.

Grose Vale has a government primary (elementary) school, Grose View Public School, a community centre hall, a Sub-Rural Fire Station of Grose Wold, and is served by a Cub and Scout Pack.


The Blue Mountains national park opens to the South and West of the suburb, and brings many forms of native fauna to the residents. Wallabies are common, as are the Australian King Parrot, the Kookaburra, the Rosella, the Rainbow Lorikeet, the Bellbird, the Galah, and the Cockatoo


Winters can drop to below zero (32 °F) but this is not common. Daytime summer temperatures can reach into the mid 40s (110 + F) and if coupled with low humidity and a strong NW wind the suburb is exposed to an extreme risk of bushfires (wildfires)
