Bathurst Tour; In 1815 the colonists of Australia blazed a road west through the Blue Mountains to settle in Bathurst. The beginning was difficult: cattle ranchers and farmers were cut off from the rest of the colony. That changed with the gold rush of the 1850s, when a boom of settlements appeared across the land. Today, the whole central part of Bathurst has been heritage-listed to preserve the history it possesses. And in the months of April and October, the vintage streets come alive with fans of the exciting Mount Panorama V-8 racing! Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

Tips

  • Go to the Visitor Center for great information on attractions, souvenirs, and local produce, and to see some of the historic artifacts that are on display.
  • Visit during V-8 racing, Easter weekend or in October, to see a town brought to life when people from all over the world come to enjoy Australia's racing history.
  • Rent a car (or bring your own) to drive the track yourself during the off-season, or to take in the small surrounding country towns that are full of surprises. Public transport to most sites is not as readily available as in other cities in Australia.
  • There are many self-drive tours to see surrounding settlements, Cobb & Co. Heritage Trail, or beautiful caves and national parks.
  • Some of the manors and museums are only open on the weekends, so plan your trip accordingly.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
