Western Sydney is unlike any other place in Australia. With a thriving creative scene, professional teams across all major sports, and its own airport in development, “the area” (as Western Sydney is commonly known) is an exciting place to be. And this is largely because of its people. Everyone has a story to tell, whether it’s about their background (around half of Western Sydney’s population were born overseas) or their job (Western Sydney residents work across all industries). Despite this diversity, a passion for “the area” unites people; Western Sydney residents want to see their district represented accurately, in order to have their stories told truthfully.
