Historical Bathurst and private mansion tour

Bathurst is known as Australia’s first inland city and benefits from early architecture that stands it apart from many other country cities and towns.

This tour encompasses many of the local examples of early architecture with a Sydney influence and some more modern examples as well. This Detour takes you along dirt roads, through town and you’ll even enjoy a lap of the world famous Mt Panorama racing circuit with a bend by bend commentary of the track and its rich history.

The tour then proceeds to the famous Abercrombie House for a very private tour of this magnificent Mansion. This private and personal tour is only available with Detour Adventures.

Not everyone can own a mansion but on a Detour Adventure, you can experience a mansion from the owner’s perspective. Guests will be taken on a private tour of the grounds and the mansion visiting areas not open to the public and will learn about the intricate history of the mansion from your tour driver. You will be given time to marvel at the architecture and detail of this 140 year old mansion. Guests will have the opportunity to pick up a treasure in the gift shop and antique barn, before enjoying an afternoon tea on the drawing room veranda lawn. You may even bump into the owners of this wonderful castle.
