Points of interest close to Bathurst Budget Car Hire

Once you arrive at Bathurst you will want to explore the history of this beautiful area. Abercrombie House, should be the first stop on your exploration. This beautiful 50 room mansion of the 1870's houses exhibitions, displays, collections, grounds and gardens, outbuildings and property walks on 18 hectares. It is a perfect way to start your time in Bathurst. From here take your car hire and drive over to the Bathurst and District Historical Museum. Here you will find historical artefacts, and Bathurst Archives, which has extensive family history records. Finish off the day at the Old Government Cottage, one of the oldest brick buildings in Australia, built in 1817. This historic house is part of the building that housed the commandant of the early township.

The Bathurst Heritage Drive is another great way to learn the history of this region. This is a self-drive tour, so can go as fast or slow, as you want in your rental taking in everything the tour has to offer. This tour will take around 60-90 minutes to drive but will take longer if when you stop to explore the sights. There are Blue Heritage Drive signs located along the route to assure you that you are heading in the right direction.

Take your Budget rental for a drive one day and visit the Abercrombie Caves. Walk through the grand arch of the cave and encounter the solid masses of marble which decorate the walls. As you walk through the Abercrombie Caves you will find swimming holes as well as a place for mining. Camp areas inside the caves make for a great area to picnic, relax and take in all the beauty. After spending the first part of your day at the Abercrombie Caves, head over to the Jenolan Caves. These are among the world's oldest cave system where you will find underground rivers, adventure caving, ghost tours and even an underground concert if you are lucky. Above ground you can grab a meal at the cafe or restaurant before heading back to your accommodation for the night.

After spending a day underground spend your next day outside in the sun. The Bathurst Farm Experience is a great way to start the day. Interact with the animals, feed the lambs and a ride on a Shetland pony or Draught horse. It is a fun time for all ages. Just a short ride from there, in your car hire, is the Hillandale Garden and Nursery. This garden is over 100 years old and features acres of nature for your exploration and enjoyment. There is a fern lined spring creek, rhododendrons, conifers, rare shrubs and so much more. It makes for the most amazing day and a relaxing way to end your holiday.
