Places to stay

There’s no shortage of old-world charm in Orange so, if you’re looking for accommodation with a rustic, country feel to it, you’re in luck. Old Convent which is set on a large property has three separate refurbished buildings, one of which was the convent that housed Mary MacKillop, Australia’s only saint. It also has fantastic views of the beautiful Mount Canobolas. Alternatively, the Black Sheep Inn is a cosy option. Guests can stay in refurbed wool shearers cabins. Or stay closer to the city in the luxurious De Russie Boutique Hotel.

Things to do

Picture a small country town. Rolling green hills decorated with rows of lush green vineyard circle the town centre. Restaurants showcase award-winning produce and wineries create some of Australia’s most interesting wines. Welcome to Orange.

Time your visit to coincide with one of Orange’s annual festivals. The popular Orange F.O.O.D week in April will see you chomp your way through the region’s finest produce. In May celebrate the inaugural Rainbow City Festival or The Orange Winter Fire Festival, August, is a bonfire-lit party, guaranteed to smoke out those winter blues. October rings in the Orange Wine Festival which showcases the very best wine the region has to offer. In between the chaotic festival months, there are wineries to tour, restaurants to dine in and countryside to frolic in.

Food and drink

Orange is all about the wine, so make sure you do a tour of some of the region’s funky wineries. Head over to See Saw wines and enjoy a prosecco or expand your flavour palette at Swinging Bridge Winery. After touring the wineries, stop off for a nightcap at Chesterfield’s, a small bar nestled above Hotel Canobolas.

For worthy grub visit the Agrestic Grocer for a comprehensive taste of Orange. The café showcases cheese made on-site as well as jams and preserves. For dinner head to Charred (pictured) for a wood-fired degustation. Think small plates of smoky meats and local veg, fruit and cheese.
