Carabost can be found on the Tumbarumba Road near the location of the Carabost National Forest - a large Pine Plantation in the area. The only facilities available in the area, other than the Carabost Town Hall built in 1927, and a Fire Brigade Shed, is a public telephone box and a post box - both at the same location as the district emergency gathering point which is used in the case of forest fire or similar emergency.
Carabost Post Office opened on 1 March 1879, and it closed on 4 March 1897. It then reopened on 1 January 1915 and was closed once again on 27 January 1968
Gold was known to exist in the area, from at least the late 1880s, but Carabost was not as well known for gold, as the neighbouring mining areas of Humula and Tumbarumba. During the 1920s, parts of the locality of Carabost were mined for gold by dredging.
