Trunkey Creek is about 55 kilometres south of the city of Bathurst and about 130 kilometres north of the city of Goulburn. During the Gold Rush of 1851 sparked by Edward Hargraves when he announced that there was payable gold to be found at the junction of the Abercrombie River and Grove Creek near the village, it is reputed to have swelled to 2500 people. The rivers near the village continue to provide gold for hobbyists and prospectors.

The village is said to have received its name from a prospector who had a particularly large nose, and was given the nickname Trunkey. Although the village had received the official name of Arthur, the creek that the prospector was working on became known at Trunkey's Creek and the village — although officially called Arthur — was referred to as Trunkey Creek until it changed its name in 1988.

The Cemetery has no signage and is still in use.
