About Penrith

With its beautiful rivers, lakes and proximity to national parks, Penrith is a great escape for the whole family with plenty of things to see and just a 55-minute drive from the centre of Sydney.

With a suite of adrenaline-charged attractions, Penrith has developed a reputation as the place to enjoy unique and thrilling experiences. The city is home to Australia’s only indoor skydiving facility at iFLY Downunder and one of the southern hemisphere’s best white-water facilities at the Penrith Whitewater Stadium. There is also jetpacking at the Sydney International Regatta Centre, go-karting at Luddenham Raceway, the 737 Jet Flight Simulator Experience and wakeboarding at the Cables Wake Park all year round.

If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, discover the city's rich arts and culture scene with a visit to The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, the Penrith Regional Gallery, the Museum of Fire or the Sun Masamune Sake Factory.

Surrounded by mountains, sweeping valleys and lakes, there is no better place to explore the great outdoors. Relax on a cruise along the Nepean River from the deck of the Nepean Belle Paddlewheeler or explore on foot with a bushwalk to The Rock Lookout.
