Our Place Community newsletter

Celebrating Penrith's lifestyle and community, in print and online

Our Place focuses on what’s unique about living in Penrith: our enviable lifestyle, excellent sporting and recreation facilities, green open spaces, vibrant local events and the many local opportunities for families to learn, grow and exercise.

Our Place champions what makes our City different, and helps residents feel more connected, regardless of what stage of life or what part of Penrith you are in.

Seasonal editions will focus on the best local stories and activities for each autumn, winter, spring and summer.

Residents of Penrith City should automatically receive a copy in their letterbox, unless you have opted out of receiving the print version.

If you opt out of print, you'll instead receive a digital news snapshot via email every fortnight. Plus you can always read the full magazine online.
