It’s easy to get to the Orange wine region and you have lots of options, depending on what kind of experience you’re looking for. Take a roadtrip by car, enjoy the slow travel experience by train, or beat the queue and fly here from Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne in just under an hour.
Orange has its’ own airport, just 15 minutes outside of the city centre and surrounded by scenic countryside. It’s actually a bit of a treat to fly in, and we’re big fans of making our way out there for departures along winding country roads. It beats the city rush of metropolitan airport experiences hands-down!
Orange Regional Airport services around 25 return flights a week from Sydney to Orange with REX Airlines. We recommend you book flights well in advance of your visit to take advantage of the best possible price. You can also Fly Corporate from Brisbane or Melbourne.
FROM SYDNEY – Orange is a scenic 3.5 hour drive from Sydney, over the Blue Mountains. Stop off in Leura on the way and treat yourself to some boutiques and antiques shopping, and refuel at one of the fabulous cafes and restaurants. Leura is the gateway town to many of the Blue Mountains scenic attractions. GET DIRECTIONS AND VIEW MAP
FROM CANBERRA – It’s an approximately 3 hour leisurely drive from our nation’s capital city to the regional city of Orange. Stop off at Cowra on the way and visit the Japanese Garden and Cultural Centre. We’re also big fans of the country village of Canowindra, which has some great little boutiques and cafes, heritage buildings and art galleries – and it’s the home of hot air ballooning in regional New South Wales.

FROM NEWCASTLE – Drive from the Hunter Region vineyards to the Orange Region vineyards through spectacular countryside. It’s a 5 hour trip, but it’s definitely worth it to compare the difference between the Hunter’s wines and the cool-climate wines with altitude we have here. GET DIRECTIONS AND VIEW MAP
