Orange is in central New South Wales, Australia. You'll find the provincial city 260 kilometres west of Sydney.

The town Orange is just at the base of an extinct volcano and by the Great Dividing Range.

It's known as the home to acclaimed Australian poets, Banjo Patterson and Kenneth Slessor.

Orange is also known for being the home for major industries, such as agriculture, education and mining, including gold mining.

The town grows lots of fruits such as stone fruits, apples and pears - although, funnily enough - no oranges.

Orange vineyards

Orange is also a wine growing district that is quickly expanding and as a consequence of its fruit and wine industry has earned the reputation as a capital for gourmet food.

Orange heritage

Orange also is surrounded by interesting history and beautiful scenery.

Join the City Heritage Trail and take in lots of Orange's heritage sites.
