Upcoming Family Events in Penrith

Due to government regulations regarding COVID-19, some of Penrith’s tourism attractions, venues and events have made changes to their regular operations. Although this site is regularly updated, we recommend checking operating hours and conditions with individual operators  before visiting.

There’s plenty of fun and affordable things to do with the family in Penrith, just 50 min from Sydney’s CBD. Kids of all ages will enjoy the exciting activities and attractions including go-karting, wakeboarding, kayaking on the Nepean River and exploring the Museum of Fire. With so much to see and do, Penrith is the perfect place for your next day-trip or family weekend away.
