In Bathurst with a day to spare, we were recommended the Explorer Bus - turned out a great idea - who knew that Bathurst was such an amazing place - so much history, and some of the most amazing buildings in the country. And the young lady who conducted the tour (I think her

My partner and I found this to be the best tour bus ever done. The bus driver on the day (Allan) was fantastic. He knew what he was talking about, made the tour entertaining, he was very chatty and very helpful. He recommended where to eat and what attractions to see in the

On our way back to Queensland we wanted to drive around the Mt Panorama race track but didn’t know what else to do in Bathurst. Fortunately we found the Explorer Bus. The route went via all the local attractions (although some were closed) and our driver gave us good advice on

Hi there, Thanks for your kind review of the Explorer Bus. I'm pleased you found it and we were able to show you a side of Bathurst that you may not have discovered otherwise. Your comments regarding about attracting tourism to regional centres is really on the mark. Bathurst has so much to offer and my hope is that the Bathurst Explorer Bus will not only help tourism in Bathurst but tourism in the great Central NSW region. Take care, safe travels back to Queensland may we see you again in Bathurst. Thanks Ian Bathurst Explorer Bus Detour Adventures Bathurst Tours

HI Lynette, What a wonderful review of the city and the new Explorer Bus. Thank you! I'm so pleased that after 15 years of visiting for the Bathurst 1000, you've seen a new side of town. Our normal route includes a lap of Mount Panorama and while it is closed, we wanted something really special as the feature; Abercrombie House. What a stunning castle. I'm pleased you were impressed. Thank you again for your kind words. See you again next year. All the best. Ian Bathurst Explorer Bus Detour Adventures Bathurst Tours

Hi Tanzila, what a pleasure it was to meet you and your sons in Bathurst on the new Explorer Bus. I'm pleased you had such a good time and thank you so much for your kind review. There is so much to see in town and your visit was of particular interest to us as you and your sons were the very first Guests to enjoy the new 'Alternate' route for when Mount Panorama is closed due to car racing. This route takes in many historical homes and features Abercrombie House as the centre piece and what a grand old mansion that place is. Thank you for coming to Bathurst and thank you for hopping on the new Bathurst Explorer Bus. Hope to see you all again in the future. Best regards, Ian Bathurst Explorer Bus Detour Adventurs Bathurst Tours
