Summer in Bathurst

Long Summer days are perfect for a country road trip.

Strike out from a base in Bathurst to meet the friendly characters in charming rural villages, swim in crisp waterholes, and enjoy a wine tasting from a cool climate cellar door.

Our outdoor adventures are second to none, with boating, fishing, camping and fossicking abound.

Or beat the heat indoors at one of Bathurst’s world-class museums, discovering underworld wonders at the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum, or go loco in Kids Central at the Bathurst Rail Museum.
