Wentworth Point is a suburb in western Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Wentworth Point is located 16 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of City of Parramatta. It is on the western shore of Homebush Bay on the southern side of the Parramatta River.
This suburb was once part of the suburb of Homebush, named after Homebush Bay, the bay with a natural and artificial shoreline on the southern side of the Parramatta River. Homebush was established in the 1800s by the colonies assistant surgeon D’Arcy Wentworth. According to local government historian Michael Jones, “Wentworth is popularly credited with having called the area after his ‘home in the bush’, although Homebush is also a place in Kent.” It is considered unlikely that it was named after the village in Kent as D’Arcy Wentworth was Irish and had no links to the English county.
The northern part of the peninsula had been named Wentworth Point and gazetted in 1976. The waterfront residential area was renamed as the suburb of Wentworth Point on 2 October 2009 after the former Auburn Council sought public comment on a proposal to rename the Homebush Bay area, to remove confusion with its namesake suburb Homebush. The area encompassing Sydney Olympic Park was given autonomy as a suburb. The Carter Street industrial precinct was absorbed by the neighbouring suburb of Lidcombe, and therefore the suburb of Homebush Bay ceased to exist.
Wentworth Point has some small shops, cafes and restaurants. A new super-neighbourhood shopping centre will open on 21 November 2018. Built by Australian developers, Billbergia, Marina Square at Wentworth Point the centre has over 40 shops including a Coles supermarket.
NSW Maritime owns about 18 hectares of land at the northern end of the point. This land has been subject to proposals for marine related development including boat storage.
Wentworth Point is served by bus and ferry services. A light rail line is also proposed to run through the suburb.
The 526 bus services Wentworth Point from Burwood to Rhodes in both directions. The 533 bus services Wentworth Point from Chatswood to Olympic Park in both directions. An additional local shuttle bus started on 22 May 2016.
Sydney Olympic Park ferry wharf is at the northern end of Wentworth Point and is served by Parramatta River ferry services. Regular services run to Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Parramatta. The wharf was upgraded to have two docks and a faster transitions in 2015.
The 300m Bennelong Bridge across Homebush Bay opened in May 2016, making it easier for residents to access shops and the railway station at Rhodes. The bridge roadway can only be used by buses and emergency service vehicles. The bridge also includes a pathway for cyclists and pedestrians.
Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail is a proposed light rail link between Westmead and Sydney Olympic Park via Parramatta. The project would include the construction of a bridge across the Parramatta River, between Wentworth Point and Melrose Park.
