Australia Day

Bring your family and friends to enjoy hours of water fun on 26 January 2022

Cool off at Penrith’s Australia Day celebrations in 2022. 

Cables Wake Park and Ripples Leisure Centres are some of Penrith’s favourite water sport and aquatic playgrounds. They’re the perfect place to escape the hot summer heat, make a splash and enjoy hours of fun with your family and friends.

Get ready for fun water play with free entry into Cables Wake Park with free sessions to wakeboard and on the inflatable Aqua Park from 10am-4pm. Spaces are limited, so register early to secure your spot! Attendees must Arrive, Ride and Depart due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

Plus if you’re keen for a swim you can dive into some fun at Ripples Leisure Centres with free entry to both St Marys and Penrith pools on Australia Day from 7.30am. Little kids can be part of the action too with a splash pad and water slides.
