Whether you're after a quiet family picnic, an eventful weekend or a week away from it all, Penrose Park is the place for you.
Powered camping and caravan sites are available, with bunkhouses and a large hall available to rent.
Toilet and shower blocks are also available.
There's a lot to do for the whole family at Penrose Park. There are tennis courts, children's playgrounds, wood and gas barbecues, walking trails and even a bush golf course.
The Park is a safe haven for animals. Many call Penrose home and all have been donated. Horses, goats, sheep, peacocks and a wide variety of birds dot the landscape. One popular resident is a white crested corella, who always has the time for a chat.
Wild kangaroos and their joeys visit the city year-round.
The Silverton Picnic Train, which was in regular service up until the 1960s, is also on display.

The park was opened in 1937 as a recreational reserve for miners and their families. It is named after John Penrose - who was Silerton's mayor for a time, as well as a publican and effectively a millionaire.
The Penrose Park Trust manages the facility, drawing funding from the NSW Government.

Camping costs $7 a night for adults, $15 for a family and $5 for each additional child.

Bunkhouses cost between $40 and $85 per night and sleep up to eight people.

Penrose Park is open from 8am to 7.30am every day.
