Frogmore is a small town in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia. The community hall was burned down in a bushfire in 1997, and fundraising for its replacement included a Pass the hat around concert by Lee Kernaghan.

Copper was first discovered and mined in Frogmore in the 1850s, but mining has not continued since 1907, despite further exploration since the 1950s. Silver and tungsten have also been mined around Frogmore.

In the 1870s, there were two copper mines operating in Frogmore — the Deer Brothers mine and the Bensusan mine.
