Car and truck hire Bathurst

Bathurst City, NSW
92 Durham St
Bathurst NSW 2795
Look for Thrifty’s blue and white signage on the highway on Durham Street. We’re just down the road from McDonald’s and next to Beaurepaires, so you can’t miss us. If you’re flying into town, our office is a 10-minute taxi from the Bathurst Regional Airport. It’s also a quick walk (15 minutes or less) from most spots in the centre of town – but if you want to take public transport, the 523 and 525 bus routes have stops nearby. 

Drought Conditions Bathurst/Orange and surrounding areas

Bathurst Shire Council in NSW is currently in drought. Level 3 water restrictions are currently in place which restricts the washing of vehicles but rest assured your vehicle will still be in top mechanical shape. We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but trust you understand that Thrifty like the rest of the Bathurst community must conserve water until conditions change. Please remember that driving in drought conditions can be dangerous so slow down and stay safe during this difficult time.

Things to see and do with a car rental in Bathurst

Bathurst is a car lover’s dream – and Mt Panorama, just 10 minutes from Bathurst, is the town’s main attraction. It’s the location of the Motor Racing Circuit, where the iconic Bathurst 12 Hour and Bathurst 1000 bring in participants and spectators from all over Australia and the world. These events are truly unmissable for any car enthusiast. The town is also home to the National Motor Racing Museum, where you can learn about the history and achievements of Australian motor sports and get up close to a large collection of cars, bikes and racing memorabilia.

You can also visit the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum, which features some of the finest and rarest specimens of mineral crystals and fossils from around the world. Or, take a bite of Bathurst history at Abercrombie House, an 1870s structure that you can visit for a delicious high tea experience.

Of course, if you’re more interested in exploring some natural wonders, The Jenolan and Abercrombie cave systems are both roughly an hour from Bathurst. These incredible limestone caves are a sight to behold – so why not take a tour and get a look inside?
