Blayney Wind Farm and Carcoar Dam

Blayney wind farm is set up overlooking Carcoar Lake and Carcoar Dam.  The fifteen windmills were built in 2000 at the cost of $18 million and will reduce the Carbon Emissions by 400 000 tonnes over a 20 year period.

Although at the time of construction it was the largest wind farm in Australia is has now been superseded by several other wind farms as they increased in popularity during the 2000’s.


Carcoar Dam, built in 1970 is a great place to free camp.  With ample space, some with shade, a free BBQ and flushing toilets it makes a great place to check out the local areas such as Blayney, the historic town of Carcoar and as far afield as Bathurst and Orange.

From the camping area you can walk to the Dam wall and cross the two lane bride (with footpath) and explore the other side of the dam.





Water is continually released from the dam “for irrigation purposes” although we were told it actually is diverted to a gold mine.

  1. what a great place to stay for a spot of free camping :) I actually prefer free camping or show grounds - they have such an amazing feel to them then Caravan Parks {even thought we are staying in such an great one at the moment :) }
