Great River Walk
The Great River Walk, Penrith, is an eight kilometre walking track along the picturesque Nepean River. Along the way visitors can stop at one of the lookouts or sculptural seating areas to watch the boats, birds and other wildlife.
Take your bike, pack a picnic or enjoy a coffee and something to eat along the way. The sculptural seating areas offer visitors a resting place to relax and experience the serenity of the River. There are also a number of playgrounds situated along the walk, including one with a recently installed flying fox.
You can find a map of the Penrith Great River Walk at Penrith City Council's website and other information about parking, picnic areas, lookouts and sites of interest. The 'stars' on the map indicate the main entry points to the walk.
The Penrith Great River Walk is part of the larger 'Great River Walk'. It's a picturesque section of the larger walk which covers 570km, linking the river's mouth at Broken Bay to its headwaters at Lake Bathurst, south of Goulburn.
The walk is within walking distance of Penrith and Emu Plains stations. To plan your trip using public transport, visit NSW Transport Info. Parking is available at Tench Reserve, Weir Reserve or Regatta Park.
