Bathurst in Spring, virtually

5 minute read.


Spring is a beautiful time in the Bathurst region, with blossoms and blooms waking up all over town in our heritage parks and gardens, and wild bush flowers and butterflies emerging in our wide-open spaces.

Normally, Spring in Bathurst boasts an adrenaline-pumping events calendar as well.

But with travel strictly off the cards for now, while stay-at-home orders continue across NSW, we thought we would bring some of the best bits of Bathurst to you virtually through the people, places, and history that makes this town so unique.

Machattie Park

Wander through Bathurst’s grand central garden and learn the many little-known facts behind its beautiful Victorian-era features.

Bathurst War Memorial Carillon

The astounding story of how one of Bathurst’s most iconic landmarks was funded and built by the citizens of Bathurst during times of hardship as a great display of respect and memorial to those who had served, fought and fallen in World War I.

Meet Ben Chifley

One of Bathurst’s famous residents was the 16th Prime Minister of Australia, Ben Chifley. Chifley was greatly respected as a representative of the working class, having worked on Bathurst’s Main Western Railway Line for over a decade and joined the Labor Party at a young age.

Get to know the Chifley story through this fascinating impersonation.

Meet Our Bathurst Vignerons

When stay-at-home orders lift, we can’t wait to welcome you back to experience the amazing cool-climate wineries of the Bathurst region.
