Bathurst Heritage Week 2024

Bathurst Heritage Week 2022

Discover the stories of the people, places, objects, and buildings that shaped the Bathurst region.

Bathurst Heritage Week 2024 runs from 27 April – 5 May.

Heritage Week is the culmination of the Autumn Colours Heritage program and leads up to the annual ‘Proclamation Day’ celebrating the founding of Bathurst in 1815. There is a packed program of events for residents and visitors alike to explore the history and heritage behind the places we live and visit throughout Bathurst. It’s a chance to understand the stories behind how our town came to be the modern, thriving regional centre we know today.


Many of the events and tours in the program require bookings, even if free. Book online or contact Bathurst Visitor Information Centre on 1800 68 1000
