The Smithfield-Wetherill Park Industrial Estate is the largest industrial estate in the southern hemisphere and the hub of manufacturing and distribution in Greater Western Sydney. It is at the geographic centre of Sydney’s major industrial zones and sits strategically between the major population and urban growth zones in the north west and south west of Sydney.
More than 1,000 manufacturing, wholesale, transport and service firms employ more than 20,000 people.
These factors make Smithfield-Wetherill Park a strategic location for industrial services and the manufacture and distribution of a wide range of industrial equipment, food, building and consumer products.
Colonial to Monsoon – Special Food Tour
Indulge yourself on this special tour that takes you from the Fairfield City Museum for damper and Billy tea, across to the Lao Temple and Mosque to taste traditional Lao and Turkish morsels for morning tea. Finally, step back in time with a guided tour of State-listed historic Horsley Homestead (1831) to enjoy a colonial roast buffet lunch with local wine tasting in the tranquil gardens.
The design of the gracious and elegrant Horsley Homestead shows strong influence of Indian Colonial architecture which, as well as being very aesthetically pleasing, is equally practical in the Australian climate. The house incorporates many characteristic Indian features, such as cooling by punkah pendants.
The house has 17 rooms, with extensive cellars underneath and a number of outbuildings. The bricks were made by convicts on the estate and many of the fittings were imported from India. The owner will share the stories about the Homestead with visitors. Why not join us?
