Welcome to Bathurst One Day Tours; the best way to see the history and highlights of Bathurst in air conditioned comfort.
Bathurst is Australian’s oldest inland city.
The settlement named Bathurst (after Lord Bathurst) by Governor Macquarie in May 1815 has flourished and in 2015 celebrated its 200th Birthday of European settlement. But white people weren’t the first inhabitants of the beautiful valley that is now called Bathurst. The Wiradjuri people lived happily in harmony with this land for thousands of years. Today in Bathurst and surrounding areas, you can see, experience and learn much about the close relationship that exists today between the two cultures.
Being Australia’s oldest inland city, Bathurst is blessed with a rich architectural heritage.
A relaxing tour of the old town square will show you the grand architecture that lies within Bathurst; the historic Courthouse built in 1880 with its magnificent copper dome; the Carillion and other war memorials; the historic hospital also built in 1880; our tributes to the European explorers in Kings Parade; the rows of beautiful terrace homes; the beautifully manicured MacHattie Park; grand homes such as Blair Athol and Abercrombie House and even the ornately fronted Bathurst Gaol.
There is so much to see around Bathurst. Let Bathurst and District One Day Tours take you there. We can help with a range of accommodation options from the magnificent Rydges Hotel perched in a prominent position on Mount Panorama’s famous Con-rod straight to a wide range of B&B’s such as A Settler’s Cottage to self-contained apartments such as the newly built Havannah Apartments.
