New Resident

Firstly a warm welcome to Bathurst!

If you are new to Bathurst there is much to do and explore in your new City from the local cultural facilities such as the Regional Art Gallery and Museums through to our unique food and wine products or simply perusing our assortment of retail shops.

Why not visit to see how much there is to explore and learn a little more about your new home.

Mayoral Welcome Wagon Reception

The Mayoral Welcome Wagon Reception is an initiative of Bathurst Regional Council and the Bathurst Business Chamber. New residents are invited to attend regular mayoral receptions to officially welcome them to their new community.

At the reception, new residents are given the opportunity to meet the Mayor and other people that are new to Bathurst. They are also presented with a welcome pack containing information about Bathurst and discount vouchers for participating businesses in the city.

If you are a new resident, please contact Bathurst Regional Council on (02) 6333 6182 or email

New Residents Survey

We are always looking at the reasons why so many are now calling Bathurst home as well as ways to improve our City.

We encourage you to complete our new residents survey by simply clicking this link

Also we encourage new residents to become ambassadors by becoming case studies for media use. From newspaper stories and television features why not tell your story by nominating in the New Residents Survey.
