Bathurst gives warm welcome back to visitors this winter

July 2, 2020 Visit STH Pacific & Oceania No Comments Email Email

The Bathurst region is celebrating the lifting of travel restrictions in NSW and is looking forward to welcoming more visitors back with its annual Winter Festival from 4-19 July.Mayor Bobby Bourke said there is no doubt that it has been an unprecedented year and regional
NSW has been doing it tough, but Bathurst locals and businesses have shown their resilience and are ready to welcome visitors again with open arms.

“Winter is one of the best times of year to visit. It is traditionally a time for feasting and celebrating,
and we do that so well in Bathurst. Our signature seasonal event, the Bathurst Winter Festival, has
had to change this year, but there will still be plenty on offer over the July school holidays including an all new drive-in movie experience on Mount Panorama,” Cr Bourke said.

In line with NSW health regulations, Bathurst businesses have implemented social distancing
procedures and additional hygiene practices to help keep visitors and locals safe in the region.
Several attractions, as well as accommodation and hospitality businesses, have taken advantage of
the break in operations to undertake renovations and improvements, including the cellar door at
Renzaglia Wines.

“In so many ways, Bathurst has never looked better. We are less than three hours’ drive from Sydney and offer the best of regional Australia with real country friendliness but with every convenience of a vibrant modern city. If you want to reconnect with friends and family and revitalise after the last couple of months then the Bathurst region is unbeatable,” Cr Bourke said.

Analytics suggests many NSW residents have felt the same and are keen to escape to Bathurst, with
traffic to the region’s website having increased by 22%, compared to this time last year.
“I cannot think of a better place to celebrate the easing of travel restrictions than the open spaces of the Bathurst region, experiencing our natural and cultural heritage and outstanding local produce,” Cr Bourke said.

Bathurst is in Wiradjuri country and is the oldest European settlement in inland Australia.
