Located just a few short hour’s drive west of Sydney and having been blessed with gorgeous warm summers, clear, crisp winters and rich colourful autumns, Bathurst is one of New South Wales’ most stunning and tranquil cities.
But the thing with beautiful places is that sometimes, you just want somebody to share all the splendour with! A handsome young man to fall for one glorious summer’s day, to chase through golden autumn foliage and to read with by the fire in winter. But finding someone you want to see spring after spring isn’t always easy. Just finding that first date that leaves you riddled with butterflies can be hard enough!
It’s all about compatibility
Sparks and goosebumps are borne from deep rooted compatibility regarding traits like intellect, passion and humour. Relationships can never be successful if world views, ambitions and temperaments contradict one another.
eharmony can help
We aren’t like your average dating site, we get to the core of who you are and then, using our proven Compatibility Matching System, we introduce you to local matches you’re likely to get along with.
Once you’ve found someone special, try these Bathurst dating ideas:
1. Visit a museum or gallery
Combine bonding with date with learning something new and spend your date wandering around one of the cities museums or galleries. Cultural pursuits make for great early date ideas as there’s plenty of visual stimulation to keep conversation rolling in all manner of direction, and roaming between rooms gives the illusion of several dates rolled into one.
The Bathurst Regional Art Gallery is great or, for the more adventurous, you could try the Bathurst Arts Trail.
2. Visit Abercrombie Caves
Get close to your date while experiencing a natural wonder with a visit to Abercrombie Caves, just 72km south of Bathurst itself. The caves themselves are simply stunning and tours are available to join every day until 4pm – so professional singles may prefer to go at the weekend.
3 . Go for dinner
Good food and good company is the oldest recipe in the book, a match made in heaven, so why not get to know your date over a leisurely meal for two? There are plenty of options when dating in Bathurst. The Hub on Keppel Street is an excellent choice. It’s modern and trendy while still reasonably priced and with a rich and varied menu. Or, if your date’s a little on the quirky side, try Jack Duggans Irish Pub. It serves up traditional Irish favourites like Guinness Pot Pie and Irish Pork Sausages in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It was rated three schooners in the 2012 Good Pub Food Guide, so is sure to impress your date.
