Largs NSW Sign

Largs, NSW is a small town located in the Hunter Region, about 2 hours drive north of Sydney.

In the pioneering days, it was established by Cedar getters, before the Lang family settlement in 1821.

Largs was industrially important, as it became a river port and boat-building town before the Hunter River changed course.

Largs Public School, established in 1838, is one of the oldest remaining schools in Australia that is still operational in its community.
