New to Bathurst? Let us welcome you with a free lunch!

To help you settle into the Bathurst Region, we'd love to welcome you by shouting you lunch.

Twice a year we host a Welcome Lunch to give our new residents the opportunity to meet others new to our community in an informal and relaxed environment.

Joining us at the event is our Mayor, Councillors and representatives from a range of community organisations, including the Bathurst Business Chamber, volunteer groups and support networks. The Bathurst Welcome Lunch is free to attend and family-friendly. We will even provide a free locally produced gift for any new family attending.

Come along and meet your new golf buddy, coffee pal, tennis partner, or playground friend.

Our next Bathurst Welcome Lunch will be held 3 November 2024. Want to attend? Register here.
