In 2018 the Western Region Regatta will be held at Chifley Dam , 17km upstream of Bathurst. It is the ‘home’ of Bathurst Pan Dragons.
The dam is Bathurst’s water supply and recreation area – power boating, water skiing and sailing are permitted. The dam offers good fishing, cabin accommodation, barbecue and picnic facilities.
The route to the dam will be well signposted but here’s some easy to follow directions .
