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.
