The Minister for Western Sydney is a minister in the New South Wales Government with responsibility for the Greater Western Sydney, Australia.

It was first established in 1997 in the second Carr ministry as an assistant minister,[1] before becoming a separate portfolio in the third Carr ministry. The portfolio was only intermittently responsible for any legislation, nor tasked with the management of a department. The region is not defined, although generally consistent with Greater Western Sydney the portfolio has on occasion been responsible for areas outside that region, such as the Sydney Olympic Park.[2]

In the second Perrottet ministry the portfolio is responsible for the Western Parkland City Authority, which includes the region around the Western Sydney Airport.[3][4]
