The Western Sydney Aerotropolis will leverage complex supply chain capabilities emerging near the new Nancy Bird Walton International Airport, due to begin operations in 2026.

The Aerotropolis Core will be named Bradfield in honour of John Bradfield, the engineer who oversaw construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city's original rail network. It will catalyse growth of advanced industry in the Western Parkland City, building its industrial base initially focussed on aerospace, aviation and defence industries.

An Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility will provide infrastructure for collaboration, incubation and innovation, allowing businesses to test, prototype and rapidly scale advanced manufacturing processes.

Capitalising on Sydney’s first 24/7 international airport, an Agribusiness Precinct will feature state-of-the-art, digitally enabled freight and logistics hubs to support the growth of Australian import and exports.
