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

Get to know the Chifley story through this fascinating impersonation.
