What's On

Bathurst’s calendar is packed full year-round with a range of top events covering a diverse range of interest areas – from car racing to arts, wine walks to winter fun. Of course, everyone is familiar with the Mount Panorama circuit – but did you know that Bathurst has a long association with motor racing that dates back to 1911 when motor cyclists took to the dirt roads in the region? In 1938 the Mount Panorama motor racing circuit held its first race and these days October’s Bathurst 1000 is the stuff of legends.

But it’s not all petrol and Mount Pan, as the local call it. Bathurst is renowned for its monthly Arts Trail, where artists from around the area showcase their works. The Winter Winery Wander sees visitors trying the best wines the region has to offer, the monthly Farmers Market showcases the best food and artisanal eats in the area and The Winter Festival  – held every July – sees locals and visitors alike enjoying ice skating, light shows and more  in the heart of the city.

Heading to Hill End? The End Festival is a celebration of music and this unique event offers live bluegrass, folk and country music, the best of the region’s wine, craft beer and food, art installations and exhibitions, music and cabaret shows in The Royal Hall and the Makers Market – a place for crafts people and food producers to display and sell their original works.

After something different? Come to Bathurst for the Inland Sea of Sound Festival. This home-grown festival sees world class acts performing at on Mount Panorama, so all you have to do is kick back, relax, and enjoy. And for a true slice of farming life you can't go past the Royal Bathurst Show  – this annual event showcases agriculture and produce in the region, with amusements and activities for the whole family. Held since 1858 it’s a real must visit event if you find yourself in Bathurst in May.
