Penrith offers plenty of experiences and products that are guaranteed to please any person, so here are some of our top picks…
For the Wildlife Warriors
Everyone knows an animal lover, but chances are they haven’t visited Zambi Wildlife Retreat.
A unique animal welfare charity, you can book an exclusive visit to see exotic animals, such as retired circus big cats, up close and personal.
If cats aren’t their thing, Dingo Den Animal Rescue allows you to interact with dingoes including puppies, while helping to support these amazing animals’ lives.
Sit back and relax
There is nothing better than a chance to just take it all in, so why not book that special someone a scenic cruise of the stunning river on the Nepean Belle.
Phil’z Harley Tours also lets people do a tour around Penrith on the back of a 2013 Limited Edition Heritage Softail Classic Harley-Davidson.
If they want to be entertained as well, get them tickets to a superb performance at The Joan.
Thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies
Penrith is known as the ‘Adventure Capital’, so the options are endless.

For the foodies
Everyone loves a nice meal out and many of Penrith’s restaurants and cafes can organise gift vouchers if you contact them directly.
You can also purchase them online from different gift card websites for places such as Mr Watkin’s Bar for a drink or Talking Tables for an Indian meal.
The Union and The Bavarian both offer gift cards straight from their websites to make it super easy.
Penrith producers are sure to have a gift to please and what better way to show local pride than to shop local.
