DescriptionEmerton is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Emerton is located 46 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Blacktown and is part of the Greater Western Sydney region. Emerton is primarily a residential suburb with very limited commercial activity centered on the Emerton Leisure Centre. Emerton is quite close to the suburbs of Mount Druitt, New South Wales and St Marys. Emerton's boundary is formed to the south and east by Popondetta Road continuing north around the extent of Popondetta Park. To the west, the boundary runs along Halmahera Creek until the creek meets Luxford Road and follows the road south to the intersection with Popondetta Road. There are several retail developments in Emerton adjacent to the intersection of Jersey and Popondetta Roads, surrounding the main shopping centre called 'Emerton Village'. These include an Australia Post post office, supermarket, service station, medical centres, take-away food and a hotel. Banking is limited to retail EFTPOS and automatic teller machines. Housing in Emerton is very heavily dominated by public housing built throughout the 1960s and 1970s, with large numbers of freestanding fibro houses and extensive terrace-style complexes. The houses are gradually transferring to private ownership and as this continues these government-built premises are being replaced with privately built, modern homes, similar to those being built in other areas of Sydney
