Many know Charles Darwin as one of the world’s most famous biologists but few know he
visited Bathurst. Hear about Darwin’s visit as a young man in 1836, his adventures in Australia,
his opinions, and how Darwin’s visit influenced his work and science. This talk, conducted by
Kim Bagot-Hiller, will include a short walk from the Bathurst Historical Museum to Machattie
Park and return to view a letter written by Darwin. A temporary exhibition will run in the month
of March. Light refreshments available at the conclusion of the presentation.

Cost: Adult $10; Concession & Child $5 – bookings essential
