Carcoar is a town nestled in a small green valley on the oak-lined banks of the Belubula River in the Central West region of New South Wales, Australia – 52 km south-west of Bathurst and 720 m above sea-level.
Carcoar is the third oldest town west of the Blue Mountains, and was once one of the most important government centres in Western New South Wales, being on the western highway and rail line from Sydney, and is classified by the National Trust.However, with the Mid Western Highway eventually by-passing the town, closure of the courthouse and the rail line service ceasing in the 1980's, Carcoar fell into a gradual decline as a major centre. As a result Carcoar has to an extent become “the town that time forgot”. It remains though a beautifully preserved example of an English style19th century town.
The Railway Station built in 1886 sits abandoned and quiet overlooking the town ……… remembering.
