From Forest to Farm

The quiet country village of Millthorpe today disguises a bustling history of a community that built an independent, determined character over the past 170 plus years with vigour and tenacity. The Forest as it was originally known, for its dense bush and prolific populations of possums, ducks, turkey and emu, is the place where the Guyong / Flyers Creek track crossed the Blackman’s Swamp (Orange) / Kings Plains track and which suggested the first name change to The Crossroads.
