The best youth activities in Penrith
We’ve put together a list to get the 15 to 19 years cohort off their phones and into some Penrith action!
When they're not at school, lost in their mobile phones or computers, or just hiding out in their room, young people love to hang out with their friends. And the great news is Penrith is the place for young people to get together, be active in the great outdoors, experience adventure at its very best, enjoy delicious food and create memories.
Active in the outdoors
If you like a bit of dramatic scenery with your picnic fare, head to the Rock Lookout or make the most of the sprawling reserve at Werrington Lakes, where you’ll find cycle and walking paths and BBQ facilities.
Action and adventure
Forget climbing the walls at home, when they've got energy to burn there's lots of ways young people can be active and have fun in Penrith.
At Narrow Escape Rooms the clock is ticking as you follow clues, crack puzzles, solve problems and complete physical challenges to make it out. It’s an adventure game for anyone aged 12+ (or 8+ if accompanied by an adult) where 2-6 players enter a themed room and need to work together to solve a series of puzzles in under 60 minutes.
For some friendly competition in the great outdoors, groups of friends can head to Luddenham Raceway or Luddenham Raceway Paintball. Or, get some virtual action at Freak VR where you can experience cutting-edge multiplayer games, incredible 4D effects and curated physical spaces.
Penrith's attraction Throw Axe is also sure to get the adrenaline going for anyone over 18 (16 to 18-year-olds can participate if accompanied by a paying adult) or check out other exciting adventures in Penrith.
Food for fuel
There's nothing scarier than when a hangry teenager. The good news is Penrith has a smorgasbord of cafes and restaurants serving up all their faves.
A weekend away!
There’s so much to do in Penrith that one day is never enough, and after a big week at school or uni, sometimes a weekend away is just what’s needed to refresh body and mind.
