Carcoar - Cities, Towns and Localities
Not far from Bathurst and Orange, west of the Blue Mountains is the third oldest town, historic Carcoar. On the 26 May, 1829, Thomas Icely received a grant of 560 acres. In 1838 he asked for the establishment of a town at Carcoar. Then on the 29 August, 1839, the village of Carcoar was officially notified in the Government Gazette.

Carcoar is a must see for all visitors to the Blayney Shire, where you can enjoy a leisurely walk pass authentic 19th century architecture. Some of the historic buildings to see include: the Courthouse, Stoke House and Stable, Hospital, Railway Station, Cobb & Co Inn, John Fagan's house (Coach driver), Old Flour Mill, Commercial Bank and the historic churches.

Nestled in a small, sheltered valley, through which runs the gentle Belubula River, there is more to enjoy including a swim, picnic and barbecue, or drive to nearby Mount Macquarie and Carcoar Dam, drop into the Firearms Technology Museum, and visit the nearby villages of Millthorpe, Mandurama and Neville.
