Description

The regional city of Orange in Central NSW is just a scenic 3.5 hour drive west from Sydney and is famed for its incredible cool-climate wines and fresh produce.

With 80 vineyards and 38 cellar doors, 42 cafes and 2 hatted restaurants, Orange is fast gaining a reputation as one of Australia’s most exciting wine growing regions. Most vineyards are placed at unique high elevations and are producing remarkable and award-winning cool climate wines, and Orange is swiftly becoming known as a food and wine lover’s dream destination.

It’s a town for all seasons with blossoms in spring, sunny summers, glorious autumnal colours and snowy winters. Annual food and wine festivals are hosted here: Orange F.O.O.D Week in April and the Orange Wine Festival in October, and there’s also a wide array of unique dining experiences starring fresh, local produce all year round. Every week is food and wine week here in Orange!
