"Homebush Bay, also now known as Wentworth Point (trying to sound upmarket)"

It feels safe and pleasant walking around this area. You will find a fair amount of joggers & cyclists taking advantage of the nearby tracks. The blocks of units are all recently built. I believe the one developer is in control of the development of this suburb with all the good and bad that this brings.

Traffic: Traffic in the local area is pretty minimal. You will however find cars parked anywhere there is a kerb if you are near 'The Crescent' area, happily ignoring the do not park here markers. Being so close to ANZ stadium, you may find getting in or out of the suburb more painful at special event times.

Internet / Landline: Your choice is limited to 'homelinx.com.au', there are no access to the telstra exchange in this suburb. Forget about iinet/internode,etc you use the local humble ISP homelinx.. or noone.

Shopping: I strongly suggest you have access to a car. Newington village is a short drive away (but quite a decent walk). Rhodes is another similar option. The options are good if you can drive, not so great if you cant.

The views of the water are pretty and green areas have been kept. But I'd keep well out of the Parramatta River, it isnt particularly clean/healthy. Nice to look at though.
Pros
  • Relatively safe
Cons
  • Poor internet/telephony options

"My favourite suburb!!!!"

Homebush Bay (Wentworth Point) is around the rea of Sydney Olympic Park and I love it. It has great apartments and things to do, like the Olympic Park, Bicentenial Park, BMX Track, Olympic Pool, Cycling Tracks and its all close to Rhodes, Newington, Homebush, Sydney Olympic Park and more. Overall, all this area is probably the place to be.

ParkLane
ParkLane TEchnically, YES. ALl those suburbs are part of "Homebush Bay" area. I lived in Newington for the last 8 years but never went to Homebush. It is on the other side of Parramatta Rd and I didn't need to go there. Rhodes is great for shopping, but groceries I got at Newington itself. Has everything I need. Olympic Park is where I took the kids for fun.

"It's luxury living with affordable price"

This place is more than I can ask for. It is very healthy, lots of peace and quiet, and most importantly I really love it!
You will have to come and see it for yourself to believe it. The lifestyle here is excellent.
There are not many places left if Sydney that has a healthy, safe, and beautiful environment.
