Sydney, Blacktown hotels map
Sydney, Blacktown intro.The vast metropolis of Sydney, the state capital of New South Wales, has swallowed up many formerly neighbouring townships, now suburbs and dormitory districts for workers in the downtown commercial district. One such former township is Blacktown, 34kms to the west of Sydney's central business hub and an administrative centre for the multicultural City of Blacktown's 39,000 inhabitants. Now mostly a modern suburb, it's home to the largest aboriginal population of any area in the state and a large number of Filipinos, who make up 25 per cent of its population. Activities in town include a drive-in movie theatre, Featherdale Wildlife Park and the huge West Point Shopping Centre. Blacktown hotels are conveniently located for access to the centre of Sydney, with access via rail, the Great Western Highway and the M2, M7 and M4 motorways. St Bartholomew's Churchyard holds the graves of many pioneers and is reputed to be haunted. Meanwhile, the Arts Centre is coming into its own as a hub for local talent in the fields of art, music and commercial design.
