Simply head to the Visit Penrith website to get the mobile-friendly interactive map – your guide to discovery!

Starting at the historic Penrith Train Station, the 11-kilometre trail leads you to 22 points of interest through Thornton and along the river and finishes at the state significant Emu Plains Train Station.

At each stop, you’ll be provided with interesting information on the site, the people who lived or worked there and the influence they had on the growth of the City.

The Penrith Heritage Walk is flexible. You can complete the whole walk in one day or break it into sections to suit your level of fitness and time available.

And there’s no need to rush! Explore attractions along the way, like the Museum of Fire, Arms of Australia Inn Museum and the Penrith Regional Gallery as well as cafés, including the heritage listed Red Cow Hotel, Henry’s Bar and Restaurant and Emu Hall the river and parks – enjoying both our past and present.
