Homebush West is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Homebush West is located 13 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Strathfield, with a small unpopulated strip in the northwest in Cumberland Council. The suburb is commonly referred to as Flemington, even in official contexts. This was the old name of the suburb before the establishment of Sydney Markets in 1975. Subsequently, “Flemington” was confined to the area occupied by the markets, whereas the residential part of the suburb was renamed “Homebush West”, after the suburb of Homebush immediately to the east. Both the railway station and various organisations and businesses in the suburb still carry the name “Flemington”. Homebush Bay was formerly a separate suburbs to the north.
