(According to Wikipedia)
Candelo is a town in south-eastern New South Wales, Australia. It is in the Bega Valley Shire local government area, 448 kilometres (278 mi) south of the state capital, Sydney and 38 kilometres (24 mi) north-west of the popular coastal holiday destination of Eden. In 2011, Candelo had a population of 732 people. Candelo was named by Peter Imlay, the first European settler in the area, who named his original 1834 house "Candelo House" after the town of Candelo, Italy.
The area around Candelo was first settled by Europeans in the 1830s, and the village was developed in the 1860s at a crossroads, following the passage of the New South Wales Land Act of 1861 which allowed closer settlement.
