Bathurst Regional Council is following advice on COVID-19 from the state and federal health departments and is closely monitoring developments and assessing potential impact. Non-essential static gatherings of 100 people or more indoors, or 500 people or more outdoors (i.e. where people are in close proximity for extended periods of time) have been banned.
Staff are monitoring developments and assessing any potential impact on Councils services, facilities and events. As number of events scheduled for Autumn have been cancelled. We will continue to monitor developments prior to making decisions on major events scheduled for later this year. Please keep up to date with the current status of all events across the Bathurst region here. But read on below as well to remind yourself just how rich the standard events calendar for our region is - we all look forward to being able to celebrate the return to this amazing array of events as soon as we are able! ♥
Bathurst’s regular 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.
