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 the New South Wales public school that has operated for the longest continuous time from the same site[1][2] and is one of the oldest still operating schools in Australia.
