Keen golfers will love the challenging fairways at Gowan Brae Golf and Country Club, one of the best places to tee off in Bathurst. Work on your backswing, and try to beat the course average, then enjoy a few laughs with fellow golf-obsessives in the clubhouse bar.
Enjoy listening to the birds, throw a ball and catch some sunshine at the nearby beach called Youghall Beach. This is a great place to head to when you are are ready for a break from sight-seeing. Slip off your shoes and walk along the water’s edge or simply enjoy the view.
The Promenade Waterfront is the perfect place to finish your explorations into this fascinating region.
