When police arrived, they found about 150 people at the abandoned premises and were attacked with glass bottles and projectiles.
The attack was so intense authorities called in the riot squad, dog unit and police helicopter, before the revellers left the party peacefully.
Later, a police officer was injured arresting a 17-year-old teen who allegedly assaulted a 19-year-old at Gymea Railway Station. Both teens had left the nearby party.
The police officer, who sustained cuts and swelling to his head, has since been discharged from hospital.
Social media users described the scene at the party as police attempted to take control.
