Bathurst is situated in the Macquarie River Plains on the western side of the Great Dividing Range. The city sits on the banks of the Macquarie River which is also part of the Murray Darling Basin, the foremost river system in Australia. Being on the banks of the river, Bathurst is protected by a levee bank to safeguard the city from random floods. Mount Panorama is located 3 kilometres from the central business district and is actually within the city limits.

Bathurst is also alongside the Great Western Highway which runs from Sydney to Bathurst. There are two key state highways from Bathurst called the Mitchell Highway going to Bourke, and the Midwestern Highway which travels to the city of Hay. Bathurst is situated approximately halfway along a regional road route from Goulburn to Canberra and the Hunter Region and Mudgee. Bathurst is also found beside the Main Western Railway line. Commencing at the Sydney Central Station the rail line continues for 242 kilometres to Bathurst.

The original inhabitants of Bathurst were the Wiradjuri Aboriginals, considered to be one of the largest semi-nomadic tribes in New South Wales. The Macquarie Valley is nestled between three rivers, namely, the Murrumbidgee, Lachlan and Macquarie Rivers. These rivers provided a good source of fish and duck, with emu, kangaroo and various edible plants along the foreshores.

The Wiradjuri people had a typical social system based on totemic knowledge and kinship. The original white settlers who came on the scene found the Aboriginals harmless and timid. However, after continued settlement by whites, conflict began to emerge until martial law was declared for a period of time in 1824.

George William Evans was the first white man to settle in the Bathurst Plains area. At that time he was Assistant surveyor of Lands. In 1813, from the earlier discoveries of Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth, Evans and his party set out to confirm and extend the discoveries made.

Some of the titles named by Evans were the Macquarie and O’Connell Plains, the Evans sugarloaf, the Fish, the Macquarie Rivers, Bathurst Plains and Mount Pleasant. When Evans returned from his explorations and handed in his report, Governor Macquarie ordered William Cox to take a team of convicts and construct a road west of Emu Plains into the newly discovered territory.

After the road was completed in 1815, Governor Macquarie assembled the whole population of the district and proclaimed the site of the future town of Bathurst.

Bathurst has a vivacious community life with a diverse assortment of interest groups and community based facilities.
