About Bathurst Tours

Making memories, making a difference

Bathurst Tours journey began in 2015 with passionate local Ian Redpath who had bus touring in his blood, inheriting it from his Grandfather Kenneth Cale, who ran a family coach tour business offering day adventures from Katoomba to Jenolan caves in 1923.  After many tours and adventures under Ian’s watch, in December 2021, Ian and Kerrie Redpath handed the Bathurst Tours reigns over to Bathurst Community Transport.

Bathurst Community Transport obviously have transportation in their veins and with a flawless reputation as a professional, kind, and caring transport business since 1978, the transition into bus touring for fun and adventure has come naturally.

Kathryn, Domino and the team, are loving the diversification of their business and the many more fascinating people they are meeting along the way.

I booked a wine tour with Bathurst Tours and was very impressed with the service from the first enquiry to the end of the trip. The tour was perfectly suited to us and what we wanted to experience on a Saturday afternoon. The places we visited were very accommodating of a medium sized group. The driver was informative and pleasant and gentlemanly. We had an awesome day and will use Bathurst Tours again.


Hired Bathurst Tours for a Wine and Gin half day tour for a Hens Party. Bathurst Tours was great to deal with, very professional and friendly with lots of experience. Everything was taken care of which made the day very enjoyable. Highly recommend using Bathurst Tours. Thanks for a great day!

Having driven through Bathurst on many occasions over the years, I was unaware of its wonderful 19th century buildings. Ian was fun to be with, mixing the right balance of knowledge, professionalism and light heartedness. Ian is proud of his city, and with good reason. It’s history is very interesting. Ian’s general optimism and hope for Bathhurst’s bright future help inform and guide its ongoing success. Great work Ian, lots of fun.

Bathurst Tours was so well organised and accommodating. We organised our trip last minute but Ian was so helpful and got the seven of us into three wineries. Thanks for a great day!

I would have no hesitation to recommend this place and Bathurst tours to all. Thank you for this special time.
