Flemington, officially gazetted as "Homebush West" since 1992, is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Flemington is located 13 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Strathfield, with a small unpopulated area in Cumberland Council.

The suburb is commonly referred to as "Flemington", even in official contexts. The suburb is colloquially known in the local area as "Flemo" and residents known as "Flemos". "Flemington" was the old official name of the suburb, before the residential suburb (south of the railway) was merged into Strathfield in 1892. From 1892, the old Flemington was part of Strathfield. After the establishment of Sydney Markets (commonly known as Flemington Markets) in 1975, "Flemington" was gazetted as an official suburb in 1977. The modern suburb, under the name "Homebush West", was gazetted in 1992, and re-gazetted with modified boundaries in 1995. Subsequently, "Flemington" became officially an "urban place" confined to the area occupied by the markets. The new name "Homebush West" comes from the separate suburb of Homebush to the east. Both the railway station and various organisations and businesses in the suburb still carry the name "Flemington", and most residents and some official sources still refer to the suburb by this name.
