The area around lower Havannah Street, the Macquarie River and lower Durham Street
was vital to the early development of Bathurst as a village and town. The Chinese grew
vegetables along the riverbank. People grazed their cows, sheep, horses and bullock teams
in the area. Visitors camped around the area after crossing the river on their journey out west
and south to the Abercrombie River, then further south to the Riverina area. Industries were
carried out and people called the area home. Light refreshments will be available at the end
of the tour.
