Royal Bathurst Show

Fri 12 April - Sun 14 April

The Royal Bathurst Show is a country show like no other. The only other “Royal” in NSW, known as the “Best in the West” it has been seeking excellence in agriculture & industry and providing fun, family focused entertainment for well over 160 years.

Bathurst Agricultural, Horticultural & Pastoral Association Inc have been conducting the show at Bathurst Showground since 1879, and around the region since 1858. It’s our 165th year at it, our 155th Agricultural Show and the 30th Royal Bathurst Show.

It’s only because of the great support of our sponsors, supporters, competitors and patrons that this annual exposition of regional excellence is able to continue. Don’t miss out, see you at the Show.
