Bathurst Area Events

The Bathurst region is the gateway to former gold rush towns and home to the annual Bathurst 1000 motor race at the Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit. Just two and a half hours’ drive from Sydney, it’s a major events hub of Country NSW.

The Bathurst 1000 is undoubtedly the biggest event in the region’s calendar and it’s what the town is known for, but there are plenty of other sports, food and wine, and music events taking place in Bathurst each year. From marathons to wine tastings, weekly markets to long lunches, there’s something for everyone in this part of the state.

Visit Bathurst in Autumn to see the stunning colours of the deciduous trees throughout the region. Follow the Bathurst Art Trail year-round and discover local artists and their take on that same landscape. And don’t miss the cool climate wine tasting held in October, and the Bathurst Farmers’ Market held on the fourth Sunday of every month.
