Picturing History

Three interpretive panels have recently been installed in the bus shelter in Kurt Fearnley Park. Through words and images the panels will transport visitors and locals through Carcoar's rich history from early settlement through to more recent times. The project, which aims to entice people to explore the town and visit the local museums, was one of the key items identified by the community on the 'Our Carcoar' wishlist. Also included on the panels are 'cameos' of some of Carcoar's notable individuals who have pushed boundaries, including: Barnard Stimpson, the convict boy who became the town's first mayor; Selina Getty, one of Australia's earliest female pharmacists; and Kurt Fearnley, the wheelchair champion. Thanks to Blayney Shire Council, The Carcoar Village Association and Sauce Design for making this project happen.
