About Macquarie Park

Macquarie Park is a business precinct on the rise. Located just 12km north-west of the CBD, the area has quickly become Sydney's second largest business district and already hosts a range of corporations in industries including telecommunications, technology, pharmaceutical and electronics. Just some of the growing list of luminaries who call the area home include Microsoft, Sony, Optus, Johnson & Johnson and Goodman-Fielder.

With its leading edge infrastructure, Macquarie Park is a highly connected technological and multi modal transport hub. Ideally situated on the doorstep of Lane Cove National Park, the precinct perfectly marries leafy open spaces and sleek city sophistication.

Outside office hours, Macquarie Park also offers a plethora of lifestyle and entertainment options, from campgrounds and bushwalks to a wide range of shopping, dining and entertainment choices.

History

Macquarie Park might currently be on the forefront of industry and innovation, but it’s past was much more pastoral - the late 19th century saw the site play host to lush market gardens, sprawling bushlands and the occasional waterfall.

Growth

Macquarie Park is in the midst of a serious growth spurt. Over 200 hectares of industrial land has been rezoned in the last two decades to create a thriving business centre. Macquarie Park is a key employment hub in Sydney – the precinct is expected to create more than 40,000 additional jobs by 2031.

Connectivity

Macquarie Park is on the Chatswood to Epping Rail Line and a major stop for bus services from key centres such as Parramatta, North Sydney and Castle Hill. The park is accessible by car via the M2, M4, M7 and Lane Cove Tunnel. The Macquarie Centre also operates the Biz Park shuttle, which offers free transit between the Centre and around the business park.

A smart and sustainable future

Macquarie Park's steady growth and fast-evolving infrastructure are underpinned by its commitment to innovation and focus on the future. These factors have seen it become a magnet for industry leaders and global giants, and are now forging the way for further growth as the precinct is projected to become Australia's fourth largest CBD behind Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane by 2030. It is also expected to accommodate over 40,000 new jobs by the same time - a boon to both jobseekers and the local and state economy.

No matter how you look at it, Macquarie Park is the ideal place to work, live and play.
