Hargraves is a small rural town located 42km south-west of Mudgee, NSW. Although quiet in appearance, the town features a rich and interesting historical background and supports an active and progressive population. Many local families have worked on the land here since early settlement days.
The Hargraves community is supported by the Hargraves & District Progress Association. The Association is made up of local community members and provides facilities for the local community and visitors through a range of fund raising activities. These include a busy food stand at the Annual Mudgee Small Farm Field Days and the ever popular bi-annual Theatre Restaurant, both of which are run in conjunction with the Hargraves Public School P&C Association.
Hargraves features a general store/post office and petrol station. But not to forget an active primary school which has been established since 1856. The district’s residents and bushland are protected by the Hargraves Rural Fire Service and there is an active Pony club which meets on a regular basis. Local residents are also keen participants in a regional cricket competition and are the current cup holders. For more information on this historical village please visit www.hargravesnsw.com.au.
