Amazon Australia reinforced its commitment to Western Sydney, announcing plans to invest $490 million in opening two new fulfilment centres (FC) with both opening in early 2026.

Once the facilities based in Horsley Park are fully operational, Amazon Australia says it will create more than 1000 local jobs, ranging from entry-level roles with on-the-job training to skilled roles in areas such as Operations, HR, Engineering and Workplace Health and Safety.

“Amazon Australia’s investment in two new facilities in Western Sydney will expand our operational footprint in this area, which will provide customers with wider selection and faster delivery,” says Amazon Australia Operations Manager, Sandra McNeil.

“We are committed to improving selection and delivery speed as demand continues to grow, as well as being dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we operate.”

New South Wales Premier, The Hon. Chris Minns; Planning Minister, The Hon. Paul Scully MP; Minister for Roads, The Hon. John Graham, MLC; Amazon Australia Country Manager, Janet Menzies; and Goodman General Manager, Western Sydney Developments, Stephanie Partridge broke ground on one of the new fulfilment centres today at Goodman and Brickworks’ Oakdale East Industrial Estate in Horsley Park.

This purpose-built FC, which is targeting completion in early 2026, will be around four and a half times the size of the Opera House (80,000 sqm) and has capacity to hold up to 1.6 million large items sold on such as garden equipment, furniture and flat screen TVs.

Construction of the site has commenced, which will generate an additional 3000 jobs during construction and fit out.

“Today we’re not only announcing job creation, but we’re also recognising the result of great collaboration with planning authorities and administrators to boost the Western Sydney economy,” says Jason Little, CEO Australia, Goodman Group.

The second FC, located also in Horsley Park is a fit out of an existing building. The 33,400 sqm site, which will have the capacity to hold up to 600,000 larger items – is set to open later this year and will have created an additional 500 construction jobs upon completion.
