Newbridge, situated 30 minutes south west of Bathurst and 15 minutes east of Blayney is a charming village with a population around 200 people. The tiny farming community of Newbridge is one of the smallest in the region.
The community contains a mixture of retirees, families who work locally and people who commute to Bathurst, Orange or Blayney for work.
The Gladstone Hotel (circa 1870's) is a focal point and the village has numerous historic buildings, providing a nostalgic, almost English ambiance
Newbridge village developed around the railway line and station which was built in 1876. A point of pride for the town, the community have kept the building beautifully maintained, and Newbridge has won a number of awards for one of the best presented stations in the state. The Queen’s Royal Train even stopped overnight as it passed through during the Royal Visit of 1970.
The village has an emerging local art scene and hosts a number of unique arts and historical events throughout the year. For day trippers, there is a village craft shop, gallery and artist studios, playground, tennis courts, picnic area with electric BBQ and amenities, a pub and restaurant serving modern cuisine. Visitors are welcome for free camping (donation accepted!) at the local sports ground
