Black Springs is on the Tablelands Way, 24 kilometres south of Oberon. The surveyed village began as a forestry encampment for the pre-war plantings in Vulcan State Forest and remains today the main Forestry Corporation Depot for the Oberon Area. Many forestry employees built their houses in Black Springs which was very much a forestry village, with a great sense of community that still exists. A well-known landmark is the Avoca Church, built in 1890 by local stone masons from local basalt stone. There are no shops in Black Springs but it supports a primary school and hosts a well maintained picnic and camping area for visitors and fossickers. The Sapphire Bend fossicking area is a short distance away on Riverview Road.
