Pints to Past

For as long as people have had roofs over their heads, they have gathered and shared in merriment at taverns and pubs across history. Some even say that the pursuit of beer was the reason humanity’s early ancestors settled down and learned how to farm. Planting the very seeds that would become modern society. 

The Bathurst region is home to heritage listed pubs and historic hotels stretching back to the early settlement days of the goldrush and earlier. Their storied pasts and quirky tales are the stuff of local legend and Australian folklore. This winter season we invite you to explore the historic hotels and pubs of the Bathurst region, settle down for an evening by the fire and uncover the past over a pint.
