Welcome to the Western Sydney Aerotropolis

Jennifer Westacott AO Chair, Western Parkland City Authority

The Western Parkland City is the economic powerhouse of Australia. It is home to one third of Sydney’s skilled manufacturing workforce. With a forecast population of 1.4 million by 2036, it is also one of Australia’s fastest growing urban areas.

The scope and potential for private sector investment opportunities in the Western Parkland City are enormous, thanks to its significant geographic scale, growing population and increasing global connectivity. These considerable growth factors are collectively underpinned by catalytic government investments including:

  • A new 24/7 curfew free international passenger and cargo airport opening in 2026 in the heart of the city.
  • Bradfield City Centre – a 114-hectare city being built for the 22nd Century on the doorstep of the new airport
  • $20 billion in government funding for critical transport infrastructure including new motorways, a Metro rail and an international airport.
  • The Western Sydney Aerotropolis – 11,200 hectares surrounding the new airport, with more than half rezoned and ready for investment and development.
