Penrith’s Great River Walk is an 8km walk offering spectacular views of the Nepean River and Blue Mountains. The bulk of the walk is the popular ‘Bridge to Bridge’ loop which is approx. 6.4 km and connected by the M4 Bridge and the Yandhai Nepean Bridge, and is suitable for walkers, cyclists or even scooter riders.

There are plenty of places to stop along the way including viewing platforms, picnic spots, playgrounds, restaurants and cafés. Find out what you can see and do by viewing the Nepean River Interactive Map. You can also plan your trip using the Penrith Great River Walk Map. The stars on the map indicate the main entry points to the walk.

Please note: that on the Western side of the River Walk, the lower section is currently closed due to flood damage. Please use the footpath adjacent to the road for your walk.
