History and location
Mortlake is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is 17 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Canada Bay.
Mortlake was originally known as Bottle Point. The suburb's name is derived from its namesake Mortlake, by the banks of the Thames in London. Parramatta River had been known as the 'Thames of the Antipodes' and other nearby suburbs were also named after Thames localities of Greenwich, Woolwich and Putney.

Waterfront suburb
With a strong industrial history, Mortlake has reinvented itself as a desirable waterside suburb. Mortlake offers the investor two business precincts: a small neighbourhood shopping village at the junction of Mortlake Street and Brays Road; and along Tennyson Road a combination of light industrial, commercial and restaurants.
