Beyond the Blue Mountains: Following the Road from Bathurst examines the history of New South Wales inland settlement and the ways in which this history is remembered. Historians provide an overview of key themes connected to this important period of NSW history. There are also videos to watch, manuscripts and articles to read and galleries of images to enjoy that provide insights into key aspects of this history. These webpages were launched to coincide with the 200 year anniversary of the proclamation of Bathurst as a town by Governor Lachlan Macquarie. Thank you to all the contributors who volunteered their knowledge and time in providing these online resources on this fascinating period of New South Wales history.

We would also like to acknowledge the support of the Office of Environment and Heritage and Heritage Council in providing a generous grant to support this initiative.
