"Penrith doorstep to urban or the Blue Mountains" Penrith by CdnJane

Penrith Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 6 photos

I got to know a little bit of Penrith because that was where my friend lives in Australia and quite liked the community. I suppose it could be considered a bedroom community for Sydney for commuters either using car or train, but it is also a wonderful stepping stone to the glories of the Blue Mountains. Again, you can reach them by road or rail. From what I discovered, Penrith seems to be a testing ground for American chains with such wonders as Krispy Kreme Donuts appearing and Walmart. Not sure of all the success of them. There is a rural community beyond, and lots of sport to be found in the area.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Close to all you could want
  • Cons:None that I found
  • In a nutshell:Great community for family living
