About Bathurst Showground

Founded in 1815

The Bathurst Showground site – arguably Australia’s oldest Rural Showground, has been used for a range of purposes since its founding in 1815; including the annual Bathurst Royal Show, a Hospital and a Military camp.

​Today the Bathurst Showground is still the centre piece of the Bathurst Community and is used for agricultural, livestock and various other community and social events.

​The facilities are available for hire for weddings, music events, cultural and art events, school activities, harness racing, motorcycle sports, horse stabling, private functions and a range of other events.

We would love to chat to you about your upcoming event.
