Signage is a crucial part of a destination’s branding and in creating a positive and consistent visitor experience and in directing and dispersing both visitors and locals throughout the city and the LGA. Tourism related signage in the Bathurst region does not adequately enhance the visitor experience or direct visitors to the area’s many attractions. 


The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
