Penrith is situated on the western fringes of the Sydney metropolitan area and 54 kilometres west the CBD of Sydney with the Blue Mountains rising at the western border.
Penrith is both a agricultural centre and a focal point for manufacturing industries. The recent redevelopment of Penrith plaza as a regional shopping centre and the expansion of Nepean hospital as well as university of western Sydney has further diversifies the cultural and economic base.
If you are coming to experience the vibrancy of the western suburbs or coming just for business then Penrith is a great place to stay. You will have the choice of beautiful riverside resorts to discount motels and self contained apartments.
