Bathurst, NSW…did you know?

That Bathurst was “the objective and terminal point of the only inland journey in Australia by Charles Darwin in 1836”.
As we enter town we can see the hill behind emblazoned with the words “Mount Panorama” in true Hollywood style.
A mere two kilometres out of town is the Mount Panorama Circuit and although we knew that it is a normal road for most of the year, we are surprised that you can just drive on it, so we did. With caravan in tow we went up the hill over the top and down the straight past the pits. Such fun, we are surprised at the number of houses along the route and how steep the track actually is. The last bend at the bottom of the straight is quite hairy even at 50kmh, so the electric braking system gets tested once again.
