Enjoy Your Stay In Bathurst

Seventy3 Boutique Accommodation is tucked away in a quiet area (about 2 minutes)  off the main highway into Bathurst on the Sydney side, about 5 minutes east from the centre of Bathurst.

Bathurst is located approximately 200kms west of Sydney which translates to a comfortable two and a half hours drive from Sydney and three and a half hours from the National Capital, Canberra.

The City of Bathurst is the oldest inland settlement in Australia. It was proclaimed a town in 1815 and, with the discovery of gold, experienced rapid growth in the 1850s and ’60s.

The town was gazetted as a city in 1885. Bathurst has superb examples of early 1800′s architecture with an abundance of heritage buildings. The main streets are a delightful mixture of old and new, with charming cast iron Victorian lamp-posts adorning busy shopping centres.

Mount Panorama has over 6kms of public road which, at each race meeting, transforms into the world-renowned Mount Panorama racing circuit. The circuit becomes the focus for over 1 billion people worldwide each year. The big V8 race happens in October which brings thousands of people to Bathurst and accommodation becomes very hard to find.

Bathurst prides itself in its education facilities, with education being one of the largest employers in the city. Charles Sturt University (University of the Year 1997) has a campus located in Bathurst. The Western Institute of TAFE, a growing institution, has expanded its facilities in the past few years. There are numerous public and private high schools and the Conservatorium of Music.
