Amazon Australia reinforced its commitment to Western Sydney, announcing plans to invest $490 million in opening two new fulfilment centres (FC) in Horsley Park by early 2026, creating 1,000 jobs.

New South Wales Premier, The Hon. Chris Minns; Planning Minister, The Hon. Paul Scully MP; 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 on 9 April 2024, at Goodman and Brickworks’ Oakdale East Industrial Estate in Horsley Park.

The purpose-built FC will be around four and a half times the size of the Opera House (80,000 square metres)

Targeting completion in early 2026, the purpose-built FC 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 3,000 jobs during construction and fit out.

The second FC site will span around 33,400 sqm - equivalent to around 4.5 rugby league fields

The second FC, located also in Horsley Park is a fit out of an existing building. It 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.

Sandra McNeil, Amazon Australia Operations Manager, says “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. We’re 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. We are proud to be able to provide more local job opportunities and look forward to working with the NSW Government to continue our investment in the Western Sydney area.”

 All kinds of jobs will be created from Amazon’s investments

At the new sites, Amazon Australia will offer a diverse range of job opportunities in a high-tech, industry-leading workplace ranging from IT, HR and technology professionals, to associates who will pick, pack and ship items to customers. The majority of jobs will be permanent full-time roles, with leading pay and comprehensive benefits such as subsidised private healthcare and up to 20 weeks of maternity pay.

Amazon Fulfilment Centre Jobs in Australia

“The opening of these two brand new fulfilment centres in Horsley Park will be responsible for thousands of jobs in construction and over a thousand more jobs once operational – this is much needed capital investment from Amazon and we’re thrilled it is taking place in Western Sydney. This corner of Sydney will be one of the most exciting additions to job creation and economic development in the entire country.”
Hon. Chris Minns MP
Premier of New South Wales

Both of the new fulfilment centres will be equipped with advanced technology to assist Amazon’s team as they pick and pack items, serving Australian shoppers on - contributing to the company’s efforts to deliver a smarter, faster and more consistent experience for customers in Sydney around Australia.

These two additional sites will expand the capacity available to the Australian sellers who use Fulfilment by Amazon, enabling those with larger items to more seamlessly service customers around the country.

Since opening its first Sydney fulfilment centre in Moorebank in 2018, Amazon has invested more than $1.5 billion to Western Sydney, additionally opening a robotics fulfilment centre in Kemps Creek in 2022 and a logistic site in Regents Park - resulting in over 3,000 current local jobs being created.
