Taste Bathurst

One of the best parts of travel has to be experiencing the flavours of local cuisine. Bathurst is a melting pot of culinary styles and types so finding something to satisfy your appetite is not difficult at all. 

The town's main streets are home to some locally-famous institutions like Church Bar, a one-time Anglican school house turned modern day place of worship for for pizza and cocktails, and Legall Patisserie, where the pastries are so legendary they are known to often sell out before 9am.

Other favourites include local pubs like Kings Hotel, Italian wine bar Vine & Tap and Mediterranean pick, Maalouf's, for the best tabbouleh and hummus outside of Lebanon.

Jenolan Caves

Only an hour from Bathurst, Iconic Jenolan Caves House was designed in 1897 by Walter Liberty Vernon as a retreat for the wealthy landowners of NSW.  At Caves House, Vernon's design included an enormous grand dining room, completed in 1924, which is now our magnificent Chisholm's Grand Dining Room.
Chisolm’s is one of Australia's two remaining 'grand dining rooms', and dining in Chisolm’s is one of the many 'must do' experiences whilst staying here at Jenolan Caves. The ambiance and historical significance of the room is an experience in itself, and when matched with the Executive Chef’s menu, is the perfect end to a long day of exploring the Caves precinct. 
Chisolm’s is ideal for large groups and intimate family get-togethers. There is nothing quite as special as a romantic dinner for 2 by the open fire place.
