Carcoar is on the Mid Western Highway approx 26 km from Milthorpe and approx 1/2 hour drive from both Orange and Bathurst in the heart of the NSW Central Tablelands.
Carcoar, with a current population of just over 200, was gazetted in 1839, becoming just the third settlement west of the Blue Mountains at the time. Steeped in history, it is now a National Trust classified village with many former public and private buildings providing a wonderful reminder of a previous era. The Old Carcoar Post Office (Circa 1870) is located next to the village’s most imposing building, the original Court House (built in 1882). Among its rich history, Carcoar holds the distinction of being more a more sedate life, the modern Carcoar with its well preserved colonial buildings is more likely to be used as a location for film and television productions.
