Description

Silverwater is a suburb in western Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Silverwater is located 15 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district on the southern bank of the Parramatta River within the local government area of City of Parramatta. # History The origin of the suburb's name is unknown. It may have been a reference to the nearby Parramatta River which could have provided silver reflections of light off the water. The name was used when this part of the larger Newington Estate was first subdivided, in 1883. Industrial and residential developments occurred in parallel. In 1906, the area was first incorporated into the Borough of Auburn, later City of Auburn, until it was abolished in 2016. Significant parts of the suburb became industrial land during the 20th century, due to the easy access to and from the suburb by road (east-west on Parramatta Road and north–south on the A6 arterial road) and by water on Parramatta River. Some of the former industrial land has seen redevelopment as waterfront parkland and commercial offices. In 1970, the Silverwater Correctional Complex was opened, and that complex now occupies a large section of the suburb. # Weather Silverwater has a mean annual temperature of 24.2 degrees Celsius. However, in summer, temperatures often reach above 30 degrees. # Things to do Silverwater Correctional Centre sits on the Parramatta River. The complex contains Newington House and associated heritage-listed buildings. The Administrative Block, Newington Chapel and the former Superintendent's House are all listed on the Register of the National Estate. Silverwater is close to Olympic Park. Chanka memorial
