Yandhai Nepean Crossing

Landmarks and Buildings

Penrith’s’ pedestrian bridge across the Nepean River gives you another reason to be active in the great outdoors.

As well as providing a safe way to cross the Nepean River and complete the approximate 6.4-kilometre loop section of the Great River Walk in Penrith, the pedestrian bridge offers walkers and cyclists the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views of the Blue Mountains National Park and the Nepean River. Opened in 2018.

There are plenty of places to stop and take it all in, with seats and viewing platforms on either side of the 200-metre long bridge. The word Yandhai contains elements of Darug language and means walking in past and present. Nepean has been kept in the name to signify the bridge’s place. Crossing (instead of the bridge), signifies both the bridge’s modern purpose and the historical use along the river as a significant crossing.

There are some great picnic spots to choose from along the Nepean River banks, including Tench Reserve, Weir Reserve and Regatta Park.

There’s also several cafes and restaurants nearby where you can pick up a bite to eat or enjoy a drink after you’ve crossed the bridge or completed the Great River Walk.
