Bathurst is a regional city located about 120 miles away from Sydney in New South Wales. It is famous as the site of first gold discovery, first gold rush in the country and the first inland European settlement on the Australian continent. The city experiences subtropical highland climate with mild to warm summers and cool to cold winters. It is best to visit here in the cooler period from April to October when the temperature is between 52 and 68 deg F with ample rainfall. Bathurst also celebrates the Bathurst 1000 motorsport race in October and this makes a very strong case for someone visit the city during this period.Bathurst Attractions
Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum
The Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum is home to Australia’s largest
collection of fossils in amber, followed by a collection of fossilized
dinosaur eggs and other assorted opalized fossils. This museum also
contains almost 2000 specimens and artifacts dating as far back as 30
million years ago like the skeleton of a 34.5 feet long dinosaur skeleton,
and various types of minerals and precious stones. The museum is housed in
a nearly 150-year old school building in Bathurst.
National Motor Racing Museum
The National Motor Racing Museum in Bathurst lies parallel to Mount
Panorama motor racing circuit. The museum features a vivid display of
Australia's motor racing history through some iconic racing cars,
motorcycles and other assorted memorabilia. Some of the highlights are the
Ford XC Falcon (winner of 1977 Hardie-Ferodo 1000), the Holden VK Commodore
(winner of the 1984 James Hardie 1000) and the Nissan Bluebird Turbo
(fastest touring car to lap a 3.8-mile-long racing circuit).
The Abercrombie Caves are a series of limestone arch caves and a part of
the Abercrombie Karst Conservation Reserve near Barthurst. These caves have
resulted from consistent erosion by water over many centuries action to
evolve into a valley with sudden cuts and bends. The Abercrombie Caves are
home to the Archway, the largest natural arch in the southern hemisphere.
This archway consists of a late 19th century raised platform
where ‘Carols in the Caves’ events are held.
Festivals and Events
The Bathurst 1000 (also known as the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000) is
regarded as the most prestigious motorsport race in Australia and is aptly
nicknamed the Great Race. It is 620 miles (exactly 1000 kilometer) long car
race held annually in the second weekend of October in Bathurst. The
winners of this race are awarded with the Peter Brock Trophy, which was
launched in 2006 to commemorate the death of the most successful driver in
the history of the race- Peter Brock.
Bathurst 12 Hour
The Bathurst 12 Hour (also called the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour) is a
famous motorsport event that is held every year in February in Bathurst.
This event was started in 1991 and was inspired by the success of Bathurst
1000 car race. There is one main difference between the two races-
Barthurst 1000 now follows a standard of cars with a certain limit of
technical modifications but Barthurst 12 Hour presents a feel of the
Bathurst 1000 when the race had almost zero technical modification cars.
Inland Sea of Sound Festival
The Inland Sea of Sound Festival is a two-day long music festival
celebrated over the top of Mount Panorama in Barthurst. It entertains
people of all age-groups and is seconded with an arts festival as well. It
is hallmarked by the presence of some of the most popular music bands plus
local musicians and singers.
