Carcoar, NSW, Australia.
The historic village of Carcoar is nestled in a small sheltered valley beside the meandering Belubula River. Gazetted in 1839 and classified by the National Trust it is the third oldest settlement west of the Blue Mountains and has a picture book quality reminiscent of old England.
The best way to appreciate its treasures is to take a walk through the village where residents have lovingly restored and preserved many of the fine old buildings from the towns heyday in the late nineteenth century.
Stroll around the tree lined streets and view magnificent public buildings, churches and historic homes. Visit the railway station for a bird’s eye view of the village. Have a relaxing picnic on the banks of the Belubula River. An interesting range of museums as well as craft, pottery and antique shops, cafes, a nursery and hotel all combine to make the village a popular tourist attraction.
