Autumn in Bathurst

Discover different in Bathurst this Autumn.

Autumn is arguably the peak tourism season in Bathurst, with special events almost every weekend to keep the whole family entertained.

The grand deciduous trees around the region begin to turn a fantastical array of autumn colours.

It’s also the season to appreciate the rich heritage around the region and learn about the people and stories that built Bathurst to be the thriving regional centre it is today.

And don’t forget our budding food and wine scene, with cafes and restaurants featuring our fresh, local Autumn produce in abundance, and cellar doors on the outskirts of town making beautiful, award-winning, cool climate wines and spirits.
