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.
