"Over populated and getting worse"

I have lived here for 11 months and now close to escaping. Unfortunately the place is becoming so densely populated it is difficult to understand that with only two access roads how this development is going to manage once it is complete. My biggest personal gripe is the noise omitted by an interstate transport company located next to Verona Drive who are operating on a 24 hour operators licence. The residents of Verona Drive are disturbed throughout each night due to being subjected to large trucks continuously using their piercing reverse alarms, the constant revving of engines, hissing and screeching of brakes, refrigeration generators along with other loading and unloading disturbing activities not conducive to the middle of a residential area. Admittedly, the company may well have been operating with a licence well in advance of the now neighbouring apartments being built, however, one would think that consideration in regards to the potential noise impact on the new residents would have been an integral and obvious part of the initial residential planning process, perhaps the financial gain blinded the obvious! Over the past ten months these disturbances have been reported to the local, and currently high profile Auburn council who do not appear to be able to do anything about it.
My neighbour moved into his living room to escape the noise in his bedroom and eventually complained to his real estate agent who allowed him to be released from his contract due to the apartment he rented being classed as not suitable to offer a quiet and disturbance free environment. I also know of other residents who have either left or are in the process of seeking alternative locations.
Wentworth Point may once have been quite a pleasant place to live, it is my opinion that the planners have got it wrong on so many levels. Please accept my apologies for coming across so negative in this report, this is not my normal manner, it's unfortunately how I have become since living here, I so look forward to my departure.
If you are considering moving here, plan accordingly and visit at all hours of the day before you commit yourself, include both early morning and evening visits in your reconnaissance. If you intend moving into the Verona Drive area I would strongly suggest visiting in the very early hours of the morning too.
Pros
  • Close to the ferry terminal
  • Excellent nearby sporting facilities
  • Great location for running, cycling
Cons
  • Noisy
  • Densely populated
  • Insufficient access roads. Insufficient localised infrastructure (shops, adequate social facilities) without the requirement to use a car or local transport
  • lots of development

Have lived in WP for the last 5+ years. Love the ambience and the community, love the view of the bay, love the sea eagles.

"Location, location, location!"

Wentworth Point is one of the last remaining new Harbour foreshore suburbs left in Sydney. Positioned along Parramatta River between Rhodes and Newington and surround by beautiful nature parklands, Wentworth Point being located at the geographical centre of Sydney is the perfect suburb for the active lifestyle professional, family or Retiree's looking for a point of difference to their day to day living.

With fresh modern buildings, sensational facilities and dining outlets on-site, at Sydney Olympic Park and Newington, plus shopping and entertainment of Rhodes, everything is only moments away.

With the recent government budget announcement of the addition of a School opening in time for 2017 and with the proposed bridge looking positive and linking Wentworth Point and Rhodes together, Wentworth Point will be put on the map as 'the' destinational suburb with a superb BayRun and lifestyle precinct.

Transport could not be any more convenient. Imagine being chauffeured to and from work on Sydney's waterways by RiverCat Ferry Services. Frequently running between Parramatta to Darling Harbour / Circular Quay (and stops in between including North Sydney), I don't think there is a more luxurious way of public transport. Alternatively there are frequent bus services which also drop down at the nearby train stations.

  • Geographical centre of Sydney

"Sydney's best kept secret"

Located on Homebush Bay and surrounded by over 400 hectares of parklands. A true lifestyle suburb. Undergoing tremendous redevelopment from it's industrial history to one of Sydney's best kept residential secrets.

A proposed bridge linking to Rhodes, schools and additional retail and business precincts are planned for the future will make the area more accessible and attractive. Plenty of shopping options with Rhodes and Newington Shopping Centres close by and easy access to major road networks.

Then there is Sydney Olympic Park right on your doorstep. Concerts, sporting events and even more restaurants and things to do.
