Bathurst Travel Guide: 49 reviews and 115 photos
Bathurst is a city full of history, gorgeous heritage buildings, about the goldrush days, bushrangers, beautiful parks and gardens, the Mount Panorama car racing circuit, and much, much more........
It is located on the Macquarie river, 207kms or approx 2.5hours from Sydney.
If you haven't a car, then you can get here by Air, Coach or Rail.
It is a city that holds many Festivals and Events, every month there is something on........
Some events are............
Wattle Flat Bronze Thong, Rodeos, Royal Bathurst show, Autumn colours, Highland gathering & fete, Begonias in bloom, Motor Festival, Arts festivals, Bathurst 1000 car race, Wine show, and at Christmas time, Carols by candlelight.
Bathurst has 4 distinct seasons, sometimes in one day!
SUMMER is December, January, February..........
a great time for water skiing on Chifley Dam, and the stone fruit that is grown in the area, is in Season, pick up some at a roadside stall.
AUTUMN is March, April, May................
And its getting cooler, the leaves are changing colour, such a pretty time with all the beautiful brightly coloured autumn leaves. The Begonias are in bloom too!
Grapes are being picked, need some extra money, become a Grape picker!
WINTER is June, July, August..........
Bathurst gets cold, the temperature drops and its time for the winter woolies and to snuggle up infront of a wood fire.
SPRING is September, October, November...............
What a pretty time of the year this is, with Roses, trees in blossom, flowers in the gardens, the smell of scent in the air, and lots of open gardens, spring is beautiful.
Of course, it is also the time that they hold the Bathurst 1000 V8 Motor car race, and the cities population swells dramatically.
