Malcolm Drinkwater - History Hill
This grand old home, built in the 1870s, represents the finer side of Bathurst and shows an example of the early wealth the town had to offer - we weren’t just mud huts and bark buildings but could hold our own with the upper class.
Top tip: If you’re partial to an old home like this why not try their high teas? They’re held throughout the year and include sandwiches, cakes and harp players. You can BYO champagne.
