Homebush, Horse and Jockey Hotel

 The Horse and Jockey Hotel is located on the corner of Parramatta Road and Knight Street in the western suburb of Homebush. This pub was built in the 1920s in the Art Deco pub. It replaced the Half Way House Hotel which was about half way between Sydney and Parramatta on the coach track, now Parramatta Road. The new name of the pub was chosen as a reminder that the old hotel overlooked a racecourse, now long gone.


  1. I like the new name much better than the old, although I can totally see why the original owners picked it! To me, it's always nice to know your halfway point without a GPS...jp

  2. Intriguing building and history ~ great composition ~
