Emu Heights

Emu Heights, New South Wales, Australia is located on the western side of the Nepean River, at the foot of the Blue Mountains. It is bounded by the suburb of Emu Heights, the Blue Mountains Local Government Area and the Nepean River. The historic Old Bathurst Road which cuts through the suburb is used as a convenient road by those living in the lower Blue Mountains. Emu Heights rises above Emu Plains to overlook the Nepean Valley and the surrounding Penrith suburbs across the river. Emu Heights is on the Blue Mountains Escarpment which creates a unique blend of housing and natural beauty away from the busy flow of the city. The name Emu Heights was formally assigned in early 1976. Prior to this time it was known locally as The Estate and was a neighbourhood of Emu Plains. Originally the area consisted of orchards and dairy farms but these gradually disappeared as the farms were sold and redeveloped. Residential development in the area, the topography, and the already growing usage of the name before 1976, all contributed to the name's official assignation. For visitor information contact the Penrith Valley Visitor Information Centre.

Lennox Bridge in The Blue Mountains


Lennox Bridge on Mitchells Pass at Glenbrook is the oldest stone arch bridge on the Australian mainland. This elegant single span stone arch bridge was built in local stone and completed in 1833 by David Lennox using unskilled convict labour. It took one year to complete. The sandstone was quarried nearby and the bridge carried all the traffic to western New South Wales until 1926. An early engineering masterpiece.

Great River Walk Penrith


Over the past five years Penrith City Council has created almost eight kilometres of walking track along the Nepean River. Known as the "Great River Walk", it features spectacular views of the beautiful river set against the backdrop of the Blue Mountains.

The walk features resting points and lookouts where you can see bird and other wildlife in a natural setting. There are even places to enjoy a coffee and something to eat.

Most of the track is part of a six kilometre loop that follows the riverbank on both the Penrith and Emu Plains sides of the river. The walk is accessible from both Penrith and Emu Plains Railway Stations.

There is a grand vision to develop The "Great River Walk" to link the river's headwaters at Lake Bathurst near Goulburn with the mouth of the river at Broken Bay, a distance of 570 kilometres.
