Kandos was a town build on cement but sadly the cement works closed last year and the ropeway buckets that carried limestone from the quarry to the factory are now still.

Back in 1915 Kandos started as a private town when some entrepreneurial men saw the benefit of limestone, coal and the new railway line as an opportunity to get a cement industry going.  The town's name was created using the initials of these men.

It is an eclectic and interesting town with a population of around 1300 people, well worth dropping by when you are travelling this way. It's also a great area to spend a weekend.
