Within Greater Western Sydney, therein lies the suburb of Penrith, which is also a major centre within the region. The city got its name from the town of Penrith in Cumbria, England, and the city was established first in 1818. And although the city is steeped in its historical roots, it is a rapidly growing and modernising city as well, with one of the premier commercial establishments being the Westfield Penrith Plaza.
The shopping centre houses an incredible amount of shops, over 300! You can also find some of the best restaurants in Penrith at the shopping centre, including Coco Cubano! Not just for food, but also for drinks and socialising, Coco Cubano has plenty to choose from.
Perhaps you fancy something sweet, but want to skip the Penrith cafes, for something a bit more delectable? Try one of the dessert cocktails, destined to satisfy your sweet tooth, while giving you a bit of a kick at the same time, perfect when catching up with an old friend or colleague.
If you’re looking for more than shopping and restaurants in Penrith there are some wonderful alternatives! The Nepean River runs through the city, and there are some lovely ways to enjoy it, either paddling up the river or enjoying a picnic at its bankside, among many others.
If you’re interested in learning more about the origins of Penrith and its aboriginal culture, then visit the Muru Mittigar, which will be sure to teach you some things you don’t already know!
There are countless other museums in the area as well, most of which are perfect for children and families. But after a day spent in the sun travelling around, one of the perfect ways to unwind is to go to one of Penrith’s bars or clubs and boogie the night away. You are guaranteed to have plenty of choices, and if you desire, feel free to come back to Coco Cubano as well for a few more cocktails!
