Travel Tips for Bathurst

Bathurst 1000

by phoebelosophy

This is the reason why Bathurst becomes deluged with an incredibly large amount of people - to watch the famous Bathurst 1000 car race.

Bring your Holden or Ford to the Mt Pan pitstop and enjoy 4 days of rumbling engines and super-fast precision driving.

Definitely a must-see if you are in Bathurst at the start of October - and I'm sure it's on your list if you are a rev head!

Best place to sit is within the grandstand or an alternative is to get a cheaper paddock pass.

When: October 6th - 9th 2005

Where: Mount Panorama, Bathurst, NSW

How much: Grandstand -
Mountain Straight $230-$260
Pit Straight $190-$220

General admission -
$104 4-day pass
$90 Weekend admission
$70 Sunday admission

General admission with paddock pass -
$134 4-day pass
$120 Weekend general admission
$100 Sunday admission.

*Note - these prices are based on Adult admission - see website for further details.

BONUS!!! - If you wait until 4pm on the Sunday you can get in for FREE!! Yes that's right FREE! So you can watch the winning cars do their final laps for FREE!! Just walk in. Don't forget your sunglasses and suncream. A fold-up chair would be handy if you're not sitting in the grandstand/members area, and if you're staying for the day take some food (or you could risk the hotdog seller).

There is also the option of camping on Mount Panorama, however, there have been instances of sexual harassment upon women while camping so I would recommend a large group and probably best to leave the children at home!

ROCKLEY MILL MUSEUM

by balhannah

Located in the main street of Historic Rockley, is the Mill, a red brick building that was built in 1864. It is now the town's museum with displays of historic mill machinery, historic clothing, old newspapers with interesting reading ...............

AND old police records for the district

One of Australia's most famous Bushrangers, "BEN HALL" and his gang arrived in Rockley in 1863. In October 1863, Ben Hall and his gang arrived at the home of Harry Keightley. Keightley had little time for bushrangers and a fierce battle broke out in which one of Hall's comrades, Mickey Burke, was killed.
Unfortunately Keightley ran out of ammunition and was captured by Hall who forced Keightley's wife to ride to Bathurst and claim the £500 reward for killing Burke.

OPEN .....11.30am - 4.30pm on Sundays and Public HolidayS.

BATHURST HERITAGE DRIVE – 14

by balhannah

“CHIFLEY HOME”

This is another home to visit included in the “Bathurst Historic Homes Pass.”

It was the home of the late Ben Chifley, born and raised in Bathurst, who was the PRIME MINISTER OF AUSTRALIA FROM 1945 – 1949, Treasurer, and leader of the Labor Party until his death in 1951.
Ben Chifley was known as “THE MAN OF THE PEOPLE”

This home will remind you of his humble beginnings, that his career began as a Railway engine driver at 26yrs of age, and that one day, he became Prime Minister of Australia!

It just shows, that anybody could do it, and he represented the “AUSSIE BATTLER, A PERSON WITH A WILL TO SUCCEED.”
He shaped Post-war Australia by increasing immigration, improved social welfare, as well as promoting Industrial & Scientific developments.

He inaugurated the important Snowy Mountains hydro-electric scheme, and the Holden Motor car.

This 5 roomed home, was his retreat during his years in Parliament. The original furnishings of the home are still as they were, and on display are pieces that were collected by himself and his wife Elizabeth, from 1914 to 1962.

This home is known as a “PERFECT TIME CAPSULE OF LIFE IN THE 1940’S”

OPEN SAT – MON 10 – 2PM

LOCATION …. 10 BUSBY STREET, BATHURST

Included in the pass to see 3 homes…. cost $15. (2009)

DRIVE THE MT. PANORAMA RACE TRACK

by balhannah

This is probably one of a few race tracks in the world that you can actually drive on.

For most of the year, the track is a public road that leads to scenic lookouts. There is 2 way traffic, and the speed limit is 60ks. There are approx. 40 private residences located in and around the circuit, as well as Business's like Accommodation, Winery, Restaurant and fruit orchards, as well as other Sporting associations.

Go for a drive around the track, but do not speed, as the Police are often around to catch the “Rev Heads.”

Imagine being at the start, the roar of motors as you head up the Mountain around “Hell Corner” and up “Mountain straight”, through “the Cutting” and the “Esses” , getting around the tight “Forrests’s Elbow” and then hitting 300+kmsp/h down the 1.9km “Conrad Straight” before slowing for the “Chase tunnel” “The Chase,” and “Murray’s corner” and then receiving the checkered flag at the end of the “great race.”

Think of the fastest man, "Greg Murphy" who has the record of doing it in the time of 2.06.89.
And of Peter Brock, who won this race 9 times out of 30 starts.

It makes you understand how good the driver’s of these cars are!
