Top 10

Now is not the time for travel. Not the time to socialise and not the time to explore. We understand that, and it is critically important that we all do what we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep ourselves, our loved ones and our neighbours and communities safe. 

But during this time you can certainly still dream! The time will come when all is well again and we can venture forth. And when that time comes the Bathurst region will be here and it will be open for business and welcoming you back with open arms. A destination less than three hours from Sydney offering the best of a modern city whilst at the same time the very best of regional Australia. Friendly and inviting. 

Be inspired. Dream away. We'll see you when the time is right...

To help you develop your own future travel shortlist, we've come up with a top 10 of some of the most popular attractions to assist you with planning your next visit.
