Getting here

Getting here by car

From the M4 Motorway, take the Mulgoa Road exit towards Penrith. Follow Tourist Drive #14 north along Mulgoa Road and Castlereagh Road. The Museum entrance is located 1 km north of the Panthers Entertainment Centre on the right-hand side of the road after the railway underpass bridge. The entrance can easily be identified by a 1942 Dennis fire engine that is raised 4 metres off the ground.
