Artisans will showcase rare trades and crafts including blacksmithing, whip cracking, glass artistry, embroidery, carpentry, cigar box guitar making, violin making and more, across four of Bathurst’s most historic venues.

Here are five things you can’t miss at the Bathurst Heritage Trail this weekend:

  1. Rediscover craftsmanship: step back in time to find out about the trades of 200 years ago from carpentry, lacemaking, musical instrument building, blacksmithing and more.
  2. Get hands-on at a workshop: have you ever wanted to learn how to upholster your own furniture, or try your hand at vintage printmaking techniques? There is a selection of great workshops available all weekend.
  3. Sip on a local wine: at one of the wine appreciation sessions held by local award-winning winemaker, Mark Renzaglia.
  4. Snack on a yummy local treat: try a yummy scone from the Country Women’s Association, a hearty locally made soup, or grab a coffee from Bathurst locals, Long Point Coffee.
  5. Explore Bathurst: Australia’s oldest inland settlement is also home to the Australian Fossil & Mineral Museum, Chifley Home and Abercrombie House, or simply take a stroll through the historic Town Square while listening to the Bathurst audio tour narrated by Grant Denyer.
Old trades are on show at the Bathurst Heritage Trades Trail 18-19 May.
