Bathurst is one of Australia's oldest cities found inside of the coastline; Bathurst has maintained its buildings of historical significance, being the original site of government settlement. However, Bathurst is continually growing in stature as a regional centre, and there's a bubbling sense of contemporary culture as a result of the youthful population studying at Charles Sturt University. Devotees of motor-racing will already know that Mount Panorama is one of the Australian meccas for the sport with the city charged each year for the V8 Super Cars.

Bathurst is a comfortable 2½ hour drive west of Sydney and 3½ hours north of Canberra. Bathurst has much to offer visitors all year round with four distinct seasons, colonial history & historical buildings, farmstays, gold panning and many other outdoor activities. Bathurst has beautiful parks, a large selection of sporting venues.
