The NSW Government has a vision to transform Greater Sydney into three major cities; the Eastern Harbour City, Central River City and Western Parkland City as outlined in the Greater Sydney Commission’s Greater Sydney Region Plan ‘A Metropolis of Three Cities – connecting people’
Western Sydney Lakes covers 2,000 hectares of lakes and parkland along the Nepean River in Castlereagh, competing with Sydney Harbour for scale. The site offers 330 hectares earmarked for urban development on the doorstep of Penrith CBD to the east and Blue Mountains National Park to the west.
It will be a central recreational space and tourism hub in the Western Parkland City.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians, the Darug Peoples, of the land on which Western Sydney Lakes is located.
We respect their enduring cultural and spiritual connection to this special place, most notably characterised by the Nepean waterways and the Blue Mountains escarpment. We will work in a respectful manner with Aboriginal people in Caring for Country and aim to celebrate Aboriginal history, culture, customs and beliefs.
