Winter in Bathurst

Cold weather doesn't put a freeze on fun in the Bathurst region.  Cooler temperatures actually see the region come alive with a host of appropriately themed events and activities. Among the highlights include the pairing of top chefs with the finest local winemakers for the delicious full day experience, the Winter Winery Wander, and the two-week, entire-town celebration that is the Bathurst Winter Festival (think Sydney's Vivid Festival on a smaller scale but without the push of crowds). National heritage treasure Abercrombie House also stages a special Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend high tea for those in need of a bit of royal treatment. But if snuggling up in front of a roaring fire with a vino in hand with your significant other is more your thing, there's plenty of that on offer too - you'll find plenty of wonderful accommodation options that suit a romantic or family winter escape to a tee.

BATHURST WINTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Sick of watching Sydney’s Vivid Festival jammed between tens of thousands of people and countless long lens cameras, only to get a patchwork view of the lights? Then why not head to the Bathurst Winter Festival, a two week festival of winter fun with ice skating, mulled wine, illuminations, art, music and more.

  • Spend a day touring Bathurst’s finest venues and wineries to sample carefully curated food and wine pairings that will give you a glorious taste of the Bathurst region at the Winter Winery Wander.

  • Celebrate the winter solstice on 27 June with a traditional Scottish Night and Ceilidh at Abercrombie House. There will be special guests and performances including the pipes and drums of the Parramatta Caledonian Pipe Band, Scottish Highland Dancing, songs and poems of Robert Burns. Enjoy traditional informal café supper, haggis and Scottish dancing with the Ceilidh Dance Band in the ballroom and plenty more!
