Denistone East is serviced by buses. The closest trains stations are Denistone and West Ryde.



Denistone East only became its own suburb in its own right in 1999, before which it was considered Ryde. Its heart is at the intersection of Cecil Street, Lovell Road, Quarry Road and North Road, where Midway Shopping Centre is situated. These roads converge into an elongated figure of 8 roundabout. Midway Shops was first built in 1960 starting with just 5 shops and has now grown to 20 retailers.
