Cabarita is a suburb in the inner-west of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Breakfast Point is located 16 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Canada Bay.

Cabarita is a picturesque suburb, on the Parramatta River, north of Concord.


Cabarita is an Aboriginal word meaning "by the water". David Anderson, a private soldier in the NSW Corps was granted land in this area in 1795. Cabarita Park, was first known as Correy's Garden, when it was dedicated for public use in 1880. The pavilion from which Governor-General Lord Hopetoun proclaimed the Federation of Australia in 1901 was later moved from Centennial Park to Cabarita Park.

In the past, the suburb consisted of swampland and heavy industry (only the Bushell's coffee and tea factory/warehouse remains). Housing developments replaced the industry and the swamps were reclaimed to create golf courses. Until 1948, an electric tramway ran down Cabarita Road to connect the suburb with Burwood, Enfield and Ashfield.


A ferry wharf at Cabarita provides access to the Parramatta River ferry services.


Cabarita and the adjacent Breakfast Point have many new housing communities along the waterfront, such as Cape Cabarita and Breakfast Point housing villages. These developments feature many recreational facilities such as playing fields, gymnasiums, golf courses and some restaurants. Prince Edward Park sits beside Cape Cabarita.
