Bathurst, on the western side of the Great Dividing Range, is one of Australia's oldest inland cities built at a site personally chosen by Governor Macquarie in 1815. Australia's first inland settlement is located on the Macquarie River 210 km west of Sydney, via the Great Western Highway and 670 m above sea-level. 

Bathurst has much to offer the visitor from fossicking for gold, visiting historic buildings, museums, wineries, Mount Panorama, or making it the base for visiting the surrounding countryside.

Check out our listing of Bathurst accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
