Location and features
It is situated on the Mongarlowe River and about 13 km east of Braidwood. At the 2016 census, the village and the surrounding area had a population of 117. Several buildings have survived from the 19th century, when it was much larger.
Another population boom followed during the Depression when many returned to distill eucalyptus oil and search again for gold.
There was a proposal for a 98 lot subdivision in proximity to the village which was cancelled in 2008 under pressure from concerned residents.
