Homebush bay is located in Sydney, Australia. It is a suburb of Sydney, nearby the suburb of Newington. Homebush Bay is also near the suburb of Liberty Cove. In the past Homebush bay was a swamp, contaminated with heavy metals, and the environment cleaned up to build the stadium. But Homebush bay is mostly known for the venue of the Summer Olympics of 2000 at the Sydney Stadium, now known as Telstra Stadium. The Sydney Olympic Park has an area of six hundred and forty hectare. At this area where the Olympic Park is located were before living the Wann-gal group from Indigenous Australians and after came the British to settle at this place. The Telstra Stadium has been completed in March 1999. The stadium has been built to receive the 2000 Summer Olympics. At its construction the stadium could hold one hundred and ten thousand persons but in 2003 the space was reduced and could receive a little over eighty thousand people.
