This is your guide to the ultimate summer of fun in Penrith.

  • iFLYPenrith Whitewater Stadium: This 320-metre white-water course was built to host the canoe and kayak slalom competitions in the Sydney 2000 Olympics and it remains the only man-made white-water facility in Australia. Groups of eight can do guided rafting which is a great activity for adventurous families, friends and colleagues (just know you’ll get wet!).
  • iFLY Indoor Skydiving: You don’t need to jump out of a plane to experience the thrill and excitement of skydiving. iFLY Indoor Skydiving is safe for kids, and a realistic skydiving experience for anyone wanting to get out of the comfort zone and challenge themselves. 
  • Jetpack Adventures: Flying as much as ten metres above the water is no longer the stuff of dreams. At Jetpack Adventures you can make like James Bond and fly across one of the lakes at the Sydney International Regatta Centre with a jetpack or fly board. It’s the perfect summer activity because what goes up, must come down; so you’re bound to make a splash! 
  • The Nepean River: There are so many different ways to explore the Nepean River. You can hop on a boat, kayak or jetski to experience the river from a different perspective or stay on dry land and enjoy the Great River Walk on bike or foot and enjoy looking at the amazing wildlife along the way. You can also take a guided fishing tour or eco tour of the Nepean River with an experienced local guide. The options are endless!
  • Cables Wake Park: If you want to have fun and don’t mind getting wet, try wakeboarding and kneeKayak boarding at this world-class facility. Kids aged 6 and over will also love the inflatable Aqua Park which has slides, trampolines and obstacles to climb. There’s also a playground and splash pad for toddlers!  
  • Museum of Fire: Explore the drama and danger of fire and firefighting, and learn about the history of fighting fires at the largest museum of its kind in Australia. The kids will be enthralled by the collection of firetrucks and can experience first-hand what it’s like to fight fires!
  • Luddenham Raceway: Go-karting is a thrill people of all ages can enjoy. Kids (8-14yrs) can race around the rookie track, while adults (15yrs and over) can put their pedal to the metal on the thrilling pro-circuit. The outdoor paintball facility features four expansive and themed fields, and state of the art paintball guns and equipment.
