Getting to Bathurst


Bathurst is a comfortable 2 hour drive from Penrith at the base of the Blue Mountains. You’ll drive through the scenic Blue Mountains, the historic and beautiful Hartley Valley before the welcoming Bathurst Plains greet you beyond Lithgow.

You can travel along the Great Western Highway or one of the many back roads.

There is good mobile reception along the way with most carriers.

You will be travelling in the country so remember to watch out for wildlife such as Kangaroos, especially at night.
