Summer in Bathurst

After everything that 2020 has thrown at us, we all deserve a break over summer and the Bathurst region has everything you need to recharge, reinvigorate and reimagine with an array of new experiences developed and opened in 2020.

The wide open spaces of the Bathurst Plains were walked and used by the Wiradjuri for many thousands of years, a story now being told in a series of new cultural tours, Wiradyuri Nurambang 4WD Cultural Tours and Aboriginal Guided Wahluu Cultural Tours offered by Detour Adventures. The region is now inspiring new generations of travellers with world class attractions, facilities and experiences all with authentic country friendliness.

The long summer days are perfect to revive the tradition of the classic road trip and strike out from a base in Bathurst to explore the iconic rural countryside and the network of picturesque heritage villages that surround the city of Bathurst. Try your luck in the famed gold country around Sofala and Hill End or visit one of the splendid wineries of the region producing cool climate wines that demonstrate the exceptional qualities possible when growing with skill on the very edge of what is geographically possible!

And be sure to check out the programs of the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery and the author talks of the Bathurst library. All in our constantly updated EVENTS CALENDAR
