Bathurst NSW - Location Report

Bathurst NSW Prescript.png


Located on the ‘other’ side of the Great Dividing Range, Bathurst is Australia’s oldest inland settlement from colonial times, boasting a cool climate and a manicured central square where formidable Victorian buildings transport you to the past...
...Bathurst’s global claim to fame is its status as the home of Australian motor sport: since 1963, the ‘Great Race’ (the Bathurst 1000) continues to draw massive crowds to its picturesque, twisty, turny circuit.
