Yandhai Nepean Crossing
Penriths' newest new pedestrian bridge across the Nepean River gives you another reason to be active in the great outdoors.
As well as providing a safe way to cross the Nepean River and complete the 6.4km loop section of the Great River Walk, the pedestrian bridge offers walkers and cyclists the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views of the Blue Mountains National Park and the Nepean River.
There’s plenty of places to stop and take it all in, with seats and viewing platforms on either side of the 200 metre long bridge. The word ‘Yandhai’ contains elements of Darug language, and means ‘walking in past and present’. ‘Nepean’ has been kept in the name to signify the bridge’s place. ‘Crossing’ (instead of bridge), signifies both the bridge’s modern purpose and the historical use of this location along the river as a significant crossing.
There’s some great picnic spots to choose from along the banks of Nepean River including at Tench Reserve, Weir Reserve and Regatta Park.
There’s also a number of cafes and restaurants nearby where you can pick up a bite to eat or enjoy a drink after you’ve crossed the bridge or completed the Great River Walk.
