There is always something happening that helps to create the unique and vibrant culture of the Bathurst Region’s Villages. Plan your trip around these events to make the most of your visit to the Villages.


The End Festival of arts, culture and music is a celebration of Hill End’s history, from gold rush era to vibrant art community. Held this year on 17th to 19th April, the streets of Hill End village come to life with free folk, bluegrass and country music. There are local craft beer, wine and food stalls, art demonstrations, artisan markets and heritage trades workshops.

The atmosphere at The End Festival is truly special, once you have danced your heart out at the main stage, wander throughout historic buildings and explore the Hill End Heritage Centre to dive deeper into the stories of Hill End’s past. Don’t forget to call into the Royal Hotel for a refreshment in the rustic beer garden.


Wines of Bathurst holds this fantastic event annually in June, the Winter Winery Wander. From the city centre of Bathurst, a bus tour ventures out onto the back roads stopping at six local vineyards and a distillery where Bathurst’s top chefs prepare a delicious meal perfectly matched with some of the best cool climate wines in the region.

Tickets do sell out fast for this popular event so make sure you stay up to date on the Wines of Bathurst website to avoid disappointment!


The Autumn Colours Festival celebrates the distinct changes in one of the Bathurst Region's most defining seasons.
