Spring in Bathurst

Motor sports, fun runs and floral festivals aren’t typically talked about in the same sentence but that’s the beauty of Bathurst. The only thing here you should expect is the unexpected, especially when it comes to the vast array of activities and events on offer during the months of September through November.

The biggest names in motor racing descend on the town for the world-famous Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 on Mount Panorama over the October long weekend, attracting people from around the country and around the globe. Even for non-fans, it’s worth being able to tick this one off the bucket-list. So too are signature flower events such as the Bathurst Spring Spectacular Garden Weekend and the Mayfield Garden Spring Festival, where you’ll have the chance to see the region awash in a spectacular see of colour.

If you’re looking for something else you can brag about to your friends and also test your running prowess, sign up for the Panorama Punish. Not your average fun run, this is a gruelling, 6.2km hot lap style of running event that will have you hanging for a pit stop.

2020 has been a crazy year, and the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak mean that plans for some events in the Spring of 2020 are still uncertain at this time.
