Your guide to recovery in Penrith
Penrith is the perfect host city for sporting events and for post-event recovery too.
Sometimes recovery can be as simple as a walk to stretch out sore and tired muscles. The Great River Walk is a favourite of locals and visitors to Penrith. It takes you past several cafés too where you can enjoy a pot of restorative tea, or heart-starting coffee if you prefer. There are also plenty more walks and easy rides to choose from in our City.
