Here’s how you can help….

Volunteers please contact: or 0448 030 198.

Or contact Libby Loneragan: or 0409 312 768.

The Heritage Trades Trail is in its third year and is bigger and better than ever.  The flyer below gives details of the activities at each of the four venues – Walshaw Hall, Uniting Church Hall, CWA Hall and the Agricultural Research Station.

The Heritage Trades Trail is staged by a group of enthusiastic local volunteers, in collaboration with the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre but we need the support of the community on the weekend.

You will be supporting a co-ordinator at each venue, with the main responsibilities being greeting visitors and ticket sales.

Rediscover all the rare and lost trades and crafts over one weekend on the Bathurst Heritage Trade Trail. Blacksmithing, saddlery, dry stone walling, whip cracking and making, glass artistry, lace making, tapestry, embroidery, carpentry and joinery, cigar box guitar making and violin making are among many unique talents demonstrated by local and guest artisans.












Please note: Ticket cost includes both days.
