Steeped in rich farming history and industry, the historic town of Blayney NSW is an easy half hour drive from Bathurst. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, this vibrant community enjoys modern facilities among treasured traces of the past.

Elegant 19th century houses line the main street. There are many impressive buildings from the 1880s around the town, one of the most noteworthy being the Royal Hotel which was once a changing station for Cobb & Co stagecoaches. Pick up a flyer form the Blayney Shire Visitor Information Centre in the main street and take a self-guided tour of the historic buildings, preserved through the centuries.

Blayney weather typically enjoys four distinct seasons, with warm summer days, magnificent autumn colour and a dusting of snow in winter. The community rugs up to warmly embrace the drop in temperature with the annual Blayney Winter Wonderland Festival. Blayney is host to a number of festivals and exhibitions throughout the year.

Blayney accommodation options are wide-ranging, from self contained cottages, to hotels, motels, B&Bs and camping.
