The Nepean River has a serene walking track, including a 7km loop, along the picturesque Nepean River named the Great River Walk. Visitors can stop along the way at one of the lookouts or sculptural seating areas to watch the boats, birds and other wildlife.The Nepean River in Penrith is part of the larger 'Great River Walk'. It's a picturesque section of the planned larger walk which in future will cover 570km, linking the river's mouth at Broken Bay to its headwaters at Lake Bathurst, south of Goulburn.
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 Nepean River.
There are also a number of playgrounds situated along the walk, including one with a recently installed flying fox. Tench Reserve has a paved public boat ramp.
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.
