Spring in Bathurst

Motorsports, and floral festivals.

These two things aren’t typically talked about in the same sentence but that’s the beauty of Bathurst. The only thing you should expect is the unexpected, especially when it comes to what you can discover here during Spring.

Spring is a glorious time to see the region with its many open spaces, parks and gardens as life returns with all its vigour and beauty.

Juxtaposed with the high octane atmosphere that Australia’s great race brings to town.
