Penrith launches new visitor guide

Penrith City Council has launched a new visitor guide for the city in a bid to attract more visitors and help them plan and make the most of their stay.

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said the new guide was also a great way for locals to discover, or rediscover, their own “adventurous” city.

“It’s easy to overlook what’s in your own backyard, but with the Visitor Guide, residents can see Penrith in a whole new light,” Mayor Hitchen said.

“It’s also a great resource to have on hand when family and friends come to stay, as it’s full of ideas for days out, great places to eat and things to see.”

Council says the new guide provides an insider’s view of Penrith, with themed itineraries to help plan a trip or a day out with family and friends.

It highlights a range of outdoor adventures and adrenaline attractions, uncovers historical treasures and celebrates the city’s diverse arts and cultural scene, the Council said in a statement. The guide also provides a comprehensive list of dining and accommodation options and a host of family activities.

“Penrith is a fantastic destination,” said Mayor Hitchen. “The Visitor Guide highlights our strengths and showcases our diverse tourism offering. As a resident it can be easy to look elsewhere for entertainment, but the new guide is a great reminder of all the truly wonderful attractions and venues right here in Penrith.”

Printed copies will be made available at the Penrith Civic Centre soon, or can be viewed online at
