Penrith Whitewater Stadium

A spectacular venue for extreme fun or special events, Penrith Whitewater Stadium is one of only a few man-made rivers of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Located one hour west of Sydney at the foothills of the Blue Mountains and the Nepean River, the venue is ideal for a day trip or stay in the Penrith Valley region.


Penrith Whitewater Stadium Temporarily Closed

The safety of patrons is our top priority and we conduct regular water monitoring to determine whether the lakes are safe to use.  

Following a blue-green algal bloom on Penrith Lakes, Penrith Whitewater Stadium will be temporarily closed to the general public from 15 February 2024.  

We have notified all affected venue hirers and will work with them to arrange alternative dates for their events. 

For further updates and information, please continue to check this page

Please visit our Water Quality Management page for further information on how we minimise risk to people using the lakes.
