Event Series Event Series: Discover Bathurst in 3 hours

Discover Bathurst in 3 hours

Fri 1 September at 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


This is a great introduction to Bathurst. If you’re short on time or want to get to know the city and plan where to spend more time, this is a great way to do it.

Bathurst is Australia’s oldest inland European settlement.

With its rich and fascinating, yet sometimes tragic history, you’ll learn about life in early Bathurst from 1815.

We have an excellent mix of preserved Victorian and Federation architecture to admire. Be intrigued with the history; from workers cottages made from local bricks dating back to the 1830’s to grand 3 storey homes.

Learn about the past but look into the future for one of Australia’s fastest growing inland centres. Tour starts at Bathurst Visitors Information Centre.
