Overview

Bathurst 1000 is known as The Great Race and is an iconic Aussie event that takes place at Mount Panorama each year in rural New South Wales. Since 1960, the 1000km race has defined Aussie motorsport and has seen its fair share of triumphs, tragedies, and historic moments. The unforgiving circuit traverses Mount Panorama and has been the battleground for teams and drivers for 60 years. The endurance race (161 laps) is always fiercely contended with racing regularly coming down to the last lap on the final day. Each year, thousands of fans make the pilgrimage to Bathurst to experience the current era of Supercars on the traditional stomping ground.

  • Pack plenty of warm clothes: early starts and moderate altitude means it can get cold in the morning, especially up on the mountain. As the days progress, the sun often comes out and can be quite fierce, make sure to pack a hat, especially if you’re bringing a chair for one of the many embankments or choosing an open-air grandstand (all grandstands are uncovered, except grandstand 12)
  • If you can, take a chair. It’s a long day out, so this is a great way to relax and enjoy your time without worrying about losing your spot on the many embankments around the track
  • Grandstand 12 is the only covered grandstand, all other grandstands are un-covered and exposed to the elements. Keep this in mind if upgrading to a grandstand
  • If you’re entertaining clients, colleagues or treating yourself or someone else for a special occasion, you can’t go past a hospitality experience. Most facilities are located above the pits except for Virgin Australia Paddock Club, which is opposite grandstand 12 on the inside of Turn 1. Another fantastic option is the Chase Club, which is on the rooftop of the Rydges Hotel and offers sweeping views of the track as cars hurtle down Conrod Straight
  • After the racing concludes each day, if you’re at the top of the mountain be prepared to queue for a bus back down, which can take some time

Destination

Your Host:

Bathurst is the oldest inland settlement in Australia, located 200 km northwest of Sydney. Though the town has a rich Aboriginal history, it was officially declared a townsite in 1815. Its popularity and growth is thanks to the discovery of gold in Australia in the mid-1800s, and its central location meant it was used as a gateway for exploration and development of the New South Wales region. Now, the region is a large producer of agriculture including vegetables, honey, fruits, forestry, and grapes. Enjoy discovering this historically rich town dating back 40,000 years when it was once Aboriginal land through to the settlement and colonial growth that makes it the town it is today; lined with heritage-listed buildings and colonial mansions.

Climate

Bathurst has a temperate climate, and sits 650 metres above sea level, which means average rainfall is higher in this region. In October, you can expect highs of 22C and lows of 8C. Pack a rain jacket and warm layers to ensure race-day comfort and consider bringing an umbrella or hat to ensure all bases are covered — long days out at Mount Panorama can mean fans experience all types of weather
