1. Home with mountains behind, Charbon
2. Town park
3. Street view
Charbon (home to about 150 people) is a mining settlement started in the 1920s. The neat grid of streets has tidy fibro workers cottages nestled by a backdrop of mountains. The nearby Charbon colliery operates both underground and open cut mines digging coal mostly for export. A coal train departs each day destined for Port Kembla.
The town has a park but no shops and other facilities because it is just a couple of kilometres from the bigger centre of Kandos.
