Autumn in Bathurst

Autumn in Bathurst is a celebration of colour, exciting events, fresh produce, and the region’s rich heritage.

The weather begins to cool down and the beautiful deciduous trees around town start to turn their leaves an impressive array of Autumn colours.
Autumn is arguably the peak tourism season in Bathurst, with special events almost every weekend to keep the whole family entertained.
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.
