Top tips for hiring a car in Penrith

  • Hire a car in Penrith to visit the Blue Mountains at your own pace, with the option of also accessing Sydney’s beaches easily. As Penrith is on the outskirts of Sydney and travel distances are lengthy to reach attractions such as Sydney Zoo (17 km) and Darling Harbour (55 km), having a hire car will offer more comfort than trains and buses on long journeys. It’s possible to drive to Katoomba, at the base of the Blue Mountains, in 45min while a public transport trip, requiring a changeover in Springwood, takes over 1h 30min.
  • For passengers arriving at T2 and T3 domestic terminals of Sydney International Airport (SYD), reception offices for hire companies are facing the baggage claim carousels. A short walk of less than 5min is needed to reach the parked hire vehicles, in the car park between the two terminals. Hire companies also have branches in the Arrivals Area of T1, with cars located on the ground floor of the P7 Car Park. If you are being picked up by a shuttle for an off-site hire company, follow the signs to the Express Pickup zones, which are within walking distance of each terminal.
  • Be mindful that you’ll have to share the road with a large number of buses on Penrith roads. The buses are wider than some drivers expect and extra care should be taken to ensure there is adequate space when passing. Central Penrith has many one-way streets and it pays to use GPS navigation to find the most direct route. Sydney has plenty of red light and speed cameras, making it extra important to abide by the road rules.
  • Rush hour in Penrith peaks between 07:00–09:30 and 15:30–19:30. Traffic is especially congested moving east towards the CBD in the morning and the opposite direction during the afternoon. Drivers should expect delays along Great Western Hwy and The Northern Rd, particularly at the intersection of these two roadways.
