Other Activities Include: 

Hire a Bike -  Take a ride around the Macquarie River, cycle through the historic town centre, take a break and enjoy our shops, cafes and parks. Bathurst is a great place to go cycling with over 21km of dedicated bike paths plus many wide, quiet, back streets where you'll enjoy some magical glimpses of our beautiful city.
Adventure Playground - Soar above the ground on the flying fox or follow the dinosaur trail down the slippery slide, around the swings and through the maze. Fun for all ages with shaded picnic spots and amenities.
Aquatic Centre - Enjoy a swim no matter what the weather's like outside. Indoors the temperature is comfortable, activities abound and there's a café where parents can relax while kids play.
Australian Fossil & Mineral Museum - See the most complete T-rex in Australia amidst one of the best collections of fossils and minerals in the world. Discover insects trapped in amber and bones made of opal. An amazing experience.
Miniature Railway - Every 3rd Sunday the little trains take a turn around the tracks near the Adventure Playground so all aboard for hours of fun.
Machattie Park - Take some crusts of bread and feed the ducks in the pond. There's lots of grass to play on and plenty of space to run around.
Farm Life - Spend some time visiting farm animals at a couple of local properties. Ride around an historic village in a horse drawn wagon.
