Cartwright, located 38 km south-west of the Sydney CBD, is part of the local government area of the city of Liverpool.

The suburb was established in 1972, but major development occurred mainly from the 1960s, as part of the Green Valley public housing area. After population dropped from 1991 and 2006, it grew slightly from 2006 to 2011, prompting the construction of new dwellings. Today, Cartwright is an established residential and parkland area.

Cartwright is recommended for families with young children, retirees and singles. It is a family-friendly suburb with a peaceful neighbourhood and great culture. Students have easy access to schools within the suburb - the Cartwright Public School, Miller Technology High School and Macarthur Community College.

There are many parklands and other recreational areas. Powell Park, located at Hoxton Park Road, is home to the Liverpool City BMX Club and the Fairfield/Liverpool Cricket Association. It features an oval for cricket games and a track for BMX racing.
