Bathurst is in a great position for an enjoyable visit to the Central West – Explorer Country. Located close to Orange, Mudgee, Cowra and the attractions of the Blue Mountains it is en route to the Dubbo Zoo and roughly equidistant from Sydney and Canberra.
It claims to be the oldest inland city and has a wealth of historical homes, heritage buildings and gardens and a couple of main streets (with old gas lamps) wide enough to turn a bullock team.
Mt Panorama and the motor racing museum are great drawcards while others come for the wonderful monthly Grower’s Market and to sample the attractions of the burgeoning food and wine industry.
The Australian Fossil Museum, Regional Gallery, shopping in Keppel Street, cafes, restaurants, and forays to the many outlying historical towns such as Sofala, Hill End, Carcoar, Millthorpe are all possibilities during a stay in Bathurst.
We also throw in some dramatic seasonal changes (just for fun) as you explore the spectacular countryside of the region.
