Welcome to Australia's first 22nd century city - Bradfield, a high-tech city centre on the doorstep of the Western Sydney International Airport.
Connected by a Metro rail line, as well as roads and active transport links, Bradfield will be an energetic place with life, culture and public spaces. Bradfield will attract the country's brightest minds with opportunities at the national science agency, the CSIRO and a world-class advanced manufacturing research facility where businesses can design and test ideas. This will all be supported by intelligent digital networks.
Bradfield will be a key Indo-Pacific hub, connected globally via the airport and locally with the existing centres nearby. At the centre of it all is Bradfield which is perfectly placed to be the beating heart of the Western Parkland City.
