I’ve lived in Canberra for 15 years and, please don’t laugh…but I’ve never been to Bathurst.

Most things I know about Bathurst I learnt from the television coverage of the car race.

Well…we’re going.

Luisa and I are off to Bathurst this weekend.

NO, THE CAR RACE ISN’T TILL NEXT WEEKEND.

I’m not that silly.bathurst-nsw12

Here in Canberra we’ve recently celebrated our centenary year.  Blow me down if Bathurst is not counting down to it’s 200 birthday !  I cannot wait to see the gorgeous old buildings.

Please help me. Where should we go ? What should we see ?

I understand that Bathurst was a gold mining town.  Can I see that history today ?

People have told me about Abercrombie House and caves and the National Motor Racing Museum.

Please give me some recommendations as to where to eat and what to experience.

Bathurst here we come.
