The river was named by Surveyor-General John Oxley in honour of Francis Forbes, who later became first Chief Justice of the NSW Supreme Court.[1]

Areas adjacent to the Forbes River were an important source of logging timber with several sawmills operating along the river. The lower reaches were used for dairying, but these farms now rear beef cattle.[citation needed] Dingos, carpet pythons, and goannas inhabit parts of the Forbes River.[citation needed]
