What travelers to Bathurst are saying

Visited the National Motor Sport Museum. Interesting to read how the track was allowed to be created. Interesting videos about early Bathurst competitors and also Peter Brock. Otherwise the town is just another town - we unfortunately didn't have...

I love the people, and the atmosphere, everyone is very polite and very friendly.

Booming Bathurst

Bathurst sits about three hours west of Sydney. Although it boasts a European visage, with great tall trees standing next to old stone buildings, the regional centre is Aussie through and through. Don’t believe us? A trip to Mount Panorama in October to see the mighty V8s of Ford and Holden (plus a few foreign interlopers) do battle in the Bathurst 1000 may just change your mind!

The Commercial Motel has enough dart games and pool comps to keep you entertained at any time of year, while the Church Bar (in a restored 1850s church) will vie for your cash. Bathurst dates back to early colonial settlement – theCourthouse is a perfect architectural example – and it’s settling into old age quite nicely. Like vintage wine, the older Bathurst gets, the better it becomes.


10. Bridle Track Rich and untouched nature ready to be explored by bushwalking tracks.

5. Sir Joseph Banks Nature Park This beautiful reserve showcases the best in local flora and fauna.

9. Lake Oberon Beautiful still water, and a perfect spot for fishing or just relaxing on the patient waves.

4. Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit Home to the Bathurst 1000… If you’re a rev head, this is surely heaven.

8. Chifley Dam A roaring hub of activity. Home to the best inland jet boating in New South Wales.

3. Australian Fossil and History Museum This world-class facility has a great collection of ancient remains and precious metals from around the region.

7. Miss Trail’s House Take a step back in time and learn about early colonial Bathurst.

2. Jenolan Caves Prone to spelunking? Derive pleasure from squeezing into tiny spaces? The Jenolan Caves are the place for you.

6. Bathurst Gold Mines Historical reconstructions can work and they can fail. This one scrapes by because of its exceptional museum and operating steam trains.

1. Abercrombie House A grand expression of wealth and doilies!


Save up for January’s Bathurst City Gold Cup Race. ‘The Melbourne Cup of Western New South Wales’ sees Bathurst don its party garb and prepare to throw money at men and horses.

With the best in antiques, pre-loved and second-hand goods coming out from the woodwork, the Bathurst Flea Markets in April could be your best dream or worst nightmare.

The best in local produce and international chefs combine to create some amazing culinary creations over Orange Food Week (April). And did we mention there’s free sampling?

Tour Bathurst’s wineries for the Winter Winery Wander in June, as they showcase the best in local viticulture and their chefs do their best to impress.

The spring weather is in full bloom as guest landscapers from around the country gather to show off their gardening ability for the Bathurst Spring Spectacular in October.


  • Bathurst’s population explodes when the Bathurst 1000 comes to town on the first weekend in October. Good job the weather is normally mild and dry in spring!
  • January and February sees the town turn hot, and with the temperature spike comes a deep longing to do nothing but sit on ice and hang out at the local pool.
  • Winter means big socks and woollen tops, but the air is crisp and the sun is normally shining.


· Although you can get to Bathurst from Sydney by train (and then bus), its location and size make it better suited to exploring by car.

· The Bathurst region is pretty flat, making it very bike-friendly.
