In 2015 Bathurst celebrates its Bicentenary with over 100 events that mark the past, present and future of Australia’s first inland settlement. Governor Macquarie raised the Union Jack on the banks of the Macquarie River on 7 May 1815 declaring it a town. A week long festival celebrating 200 years as a town is happening from 2-10 May 2015. for more details see the bathurst200 website
