Bathurst Airport

Servicing the Central Tablelands of New South Wales, and in particular the town of Bathurst, is the small and regional facility, Bathurst Airport (BHS). The airport was established in this area in 1937, and saw the Queen of England disembark at Bathurst in 1954. In 2002 the new passenger terminal was constructed, updating the services it could provide its passengers, and the several private and commercial airlines that operate out of BHS.

In fact, Bathurst Airport plays host to a variety of general aviation services, such as military exercises, pilot training schools, aircraft maintenance, gliding training school, courier and freight services, emergency aviation services, and even parachute jumping excursions.

The current major commercial airline that services Bathurst Airport and its local residents is Regional Express Airlines, or REX for short, which offers several flights to Sydney (SYD) per day. For other destinations, you can easily connect through Sydney’s Kingsford Airport (SYD), which offers flights to domestic locations around Australia and many international destinations, such as Tokyo, Singapore, Auckland, Los Angeles and Mumbai.

 Getting to & from the Airport

Driving hide 

There are three car rental agencies that are represented at BHS Airport, these are Thrifty, Budget and Avis. But if you’d rather take public transport into town, there are several car hire companies within the town itself.

The airport is only about 8km outside of downtown Bathurst so the drive into town is a short one, and should only take you 15 minutes. Head southwest on PJ Moodie Memorial Drive, and then turn right onto the Great Western Highway (or the A32), there should be signposting for Bathurst. Continue on the A32 for about 7km, and then turn left on William Street and you will find yourself in central Bathurst.

Buses hide 

There is a local bus that services the airport from Eugenie Street/Sydney Road, on the Blue Line- Route 524 which is the Raglan via Blue Ridge and Kelso route. This bus operates on a loop to the Bathurst Bus Terminus, which is in the centre of town, and runs roughly once an hour, Monday to Friday.

The service drastically decreases its operations on Saturdays (with only three services on a Saturday), and does not operate on Sundays. The journey should take about 30 minutes.

Taxi hide 

There is a taxi service that comes to Bathurst, but it is recommended that you book this in advance, or call them when you land, as they may not automatically service the airport. It is estimated that a ride into town can be on the pricier side, costing around about $30 for the 15 minute journey.
