Penrith is a suburb and major centre in the metropolitan area of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Step out of the city life by going to Paradise Beach and Heathcote National Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at Museum of Fire and Sydney Tramway Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to The Australian Botanic Garden (in Mount Annan), Campbelltown Arts Centre (in Campbelltown) and Shelly Beach RockPool (in Cronulla). Spend the 8th (Fri) exploring nature at Berowra Valley National Park. There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Burragorang Lookout, take an in-depth tour of Rouse Hill House & Farm, engage your brain at Penrith Museum of Printing, and examine the collection at Museums Discovery Centre.
