Millthorpe - Cities, Towns and Localities
Millthorpe is a picturesque historic village set amidst gently rolling hills. The first European settler came to the area in 1823 to set up a Government Stock Station and one of the first farms established west of Bathurst was Grove Farm, where Thomas Mitchell stayed before two of his inland expeditions. Soon more settlers arrived and the 1850's gold rush, drew more people to the area. The arrival of the railway in the 1870's saw a bustling town.

Originally called Spring Grove, the town was renamed Millthorpe in 1884, due to the importance of the huge flour mill established in 1882.

Millthorpe still retains all of the charms of yesteryears and is a popular tourist destination, being just a short distance from Orange.
 

Classified by the National Trust, Millthorpe has a number of fine historic buildings, as well as cobbled, bluestone-bordered streets, art gallery, gift shops, the Golden Memories Museum and two hotels. A highlight is the former Bank of NSW (now Rosebank Guesthouse) which dates from 1895. Other buildings include the School Residence (1876), School of Arts (1897), the Commercial Hotel (1877), Rosebank Restaurant (1906), St Mark's Anglican Church (1878), St Canice's Catholic Church, Grand Western Lodge and many more. Also of interest is the Millthorpe Lookout. Guesthouse accommodation is available at Millthorpe.

A short drive to the west is the hamlet of Forest Reefs, which was once a thriving gold mining settlement, and now is an historic centre with several old churches and buildings.

Tourist information is available at The Old Mill Cafe in Pym Street. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
