Bathurst to Ilford Road is a 72 kilometre New South Wales country road linking the Castlereagh Highway at Ilford to the regional highway hub of Bathurst, where several roads including the Great Western Highway, Mid-Western Highway and Mitchell Highways and O'Connell Road to Oberon join. The road is designated as Main Road 54 but the road signs do not generally show this number.
It is fully sealed over its entire length, but many road maps still show sections of it as unsealed.
In conjunction with the Bylong Valley Way from the Castlereagh Highway near Ilford to the Golden Highway near Sandy Hollow, this very quiet and scenic route provides a leisurely alternative to going through Sydney to travel between the Hunter Region and Bathurst.
