History Blayney is a farming town and administrative centre with a population of 3,378 in 2016, in the Central West region of New South Wales, Australia. Situated on the Mid-Western Highway about 240 km (150 mi) west of Sydney, 35 km (22 mi) west of Bathurst and 863 m (944 yd) above sea-level, Blayney is the seat of Blayney Shire Council. Prior to European settlement, the area was occupied by the Aboriginal Wiradjuri and, or, Gundungara peoples.In 1815, George Evans passed through this area on a survey of the land. The first land grant in the general area known as Coombing Park was issued to Thomas Icely in 1829. In 1836, there was a mill worked by a man called Lambert, where a man named Doyle ran an inn. In 1842, Governor Gipps proposed the creation of a village to be named 'Blayney'. His proposed site for this village was about 9 km north-east of the present site in the Kings Plains area, but once that spot proved unsuitable the current location was established in 1943.
