Bathurst, located in the Australian state of New South Wales, is the site of Australia's oldest inland European settlement. Today, Bathurst is famous for its Formula 1 racing circuit at Mount Panorama, now the city's most well known landmark.
The city enjoys an average yearly maximum temperature of 19.9 °C, and an average yearly minimum temperature of 6.5 °C. Bathurst also experiences four distinct seasons, including falling leaves in autumn and occasional snowfalls in winter.
Bathurst has a population of 33,110 people, and this is expected to grow at a rate of 1.6% per year, making this city the 7th fastest growing regional city in the state of New South Wales. The population growth and the median age of the current residents (34 years, well below the state average of 36.4 years) has meant a rise in urban development such as retail precincts, sporting facilities, housing estates and expanding industrial areas.
