Rare Public Tours of Former Tafe Site William Street Bathurst
The 2022 Autumn Colours program features tours for the whole family. Download the program to find out the information and dates off all Autumn Colours tours.
The former Technical College is generally closed to the public. These tours offer a rare opportunity to view the William Kemp designed building. It has rare and regionally distinct Romanesque architectural stylings realised in brick masonry, elaborate exposed cedar roof framing and extensive timber joinery. The building showcases the emerging building technologies of the 1890’s and demonstrates the competence of the trades emerging from the grass root movements of the School of Arts and Mechanics Institutes. The tour highlights cultural and social norms of the day and how they are reflected in the building design and layout.
