About Penrith

Penrith Valley, with its beautiful rivers, national parks and lakes, is just a 55-minute drive from the centre of Sydney. It's a great escape for the whole family with plenty of things to see and do. Explore pockets of unspoiled bushland, national park, as well as the many treasured historic landmarks scattered throughout the region.

Check out the area's lively arts scene on display at local museums and art galleries; for a change of pace, get your adrenalin pumping with a whitewater adventure at the man-made Penrith Whitewater Stadium or water sports at Cables Wake Park. Enjoy the beauty of the Nepean Gorge from the deck of the Nepean Belle Paddlewheeler or explore on foot.
