Bathurst was settled in 1814 on the banks of the Macquarie River. It is Australia’s oldest inland settlement and is a charming country town rich in history with some 45,000 people.
The wide-open plains surrounding Bathurst were kept clear of Eucalypts through now lost indigenous agricultural practices. Since European settlement of this region in the early 1820’s farmers have benefited from and developed this region into one of Australia’s richest agricultural food bowls. The lands along the rivers are rich and fertile producing many grain fruit and vegetable crops including wheat, barley, corn, rye, cabbage, cherries, apples and apricots.
