Don't let the cold stop you from discovering new and exciting places with your family and friends on the weekends.
Penrith has lots of great indoor attractions to keep you warm and toasty throughout winter. Check out our list of the top five ways to keep warm in July.
1 - Escape Room 51
If you're someone who can work under pressure and enjoys both physical and mental challenges, then you'll love Escape Room 51. It's an adventure game where you are locked inside a room with 2-6 players and you need to work together to solve a series of puzzles in under 60 minutes. Unlike other escape rooms which carry horror themes, Escape Room 51 isn't scary but you won't know the theme of the room until you arrive! The puzzles are of a medium difficulty and targeted to people aged over 16 years. Children aged over 10 years can still enjoy the game and participate when accompanied by an adult. Prices start from as little as $90 for 2 people. To learn more and to book Escape Room 51 click here.
2 - See Thérése Raquin at the Joan
A thrilling new adaptation of Emile Zola's novel performed at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre from July 20-22. Thérèse Raquin is a story of murderous star-crossed lovers and a carnal, cruel and corset-filled masterpiece of French realism. Thérèse lives a life of servitude and is married off to her sickly cousin in a loveless, arranged marriage. Her life is suddenly turned around when her husband's friend, Laurent, arrives and they begin a passionate, feverish affair. What follows in this masterpiece of French literature makes for a gripping, corseted thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Think Downton Abbey to the max! Tickets just $65 for Adults, $60 for Concession and $18 for the matinee special. Book now.
3 - Tour a sake factory
Did you know Penrith is home to Australia's only sake factory? Nestled behind the industrial estate to Penrith's north and situated next to the beautiful Nepean River is Sun Masamune Go-Shu Sake Factory . Here they produce high quality sake known as Go-Shu using rice grown in Leeton and then distribute this to bars, bottle shops and restaurants throughout Australia and even to Japan.
