Parking on site

On event day there is free all-day parking on site at the Sydney International Regatta Centre.

Please note that it is an approximate 10 minute walk from the carpark across to the Island where the registration / start area is located. As the road is closed to form part of the course, there is no vehicle access to the island. If any spectators are unable to walk the distance over to the island, there are spectator vantage points on the Southern Bank adjacent to the carparks you are welcome to watch from.

Public transport

The closest train station to the Sydney International Regatta Centre is Penrith Station which is approximately 6km from the venue.


There are no current regular bus routes that connect the venue directly with the station, so our kind event sponsors Quest Penrith will be running a free 10 seat mini-shuttle bus service that picks up and drops off from the Northern Exit of Penrith station right outside their front entrance.

This service is classed as public transport and therefore any current mask restrictions relating to public transport apply to this shuttle bus. See current rules here.

The shuttle is accessible and will operate on a loop from 5am until 2pm (last trip from Regatta Centre  to Quest around 1:35). Please note that in peak times there may be a wait for this service, so allow plenty of time just in case. If you think this may affect your chance of arriving in time for your race, please consider a taxi or rideshare service from the station. These services are generally plentiful in the area.

If you are not a local, why not avoid traffic stress before the day and stay the night at Quest Penrith. To stay the night prior to the event and/or the night after to recover, you can book a Studio Apartment, a One Bedroom Apartment or a Two Bedroom Apartment.

Call Quest Penrith on 02 9136 1100 and mention you are in town for the Western Sydney Marathon to book your stay at the best current rate or get more information.

Taxis / Rideshare

Being a major transport hub, you will be able to utilise taxi / rideshare services between Penrith Station and the venue.

Just have them drop off / pick up at Sydney International Regatta Centre on Old Castlereagh Road. Gate B is the one you will need to enter on the day.
