Winter in Bathurst

Cold weather doesn't put a freeze on fun in this central NSW short break destination.  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 sans the 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 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 Bathurst’s Winter Festival, it’s a two week festival of winter fun with ice skating, mulled wine, illuminations and more.

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

  • Queen Elizabeth II loves Bathurst so much that she has visited twice – yes, seriously! Celebrate her birthday with a June long weekend high tea at Abercrombie House, renowned as the best place for high tea in the entire state.
