This annual event is held over 10 days in April which showcases the local produce, the local chefs and restaurants. It was a fun festival atmosphere as we made our way around tasting various cheeses, breads, curries, fruits, desserts, and of course some wine and beer.
No trip to Orange would be complete without trying some of the local wine. Whether you’re looking for a crisp Sauvignon Blanc or a warming Pinot Noir, wines come in all variaties here.
You can either hike, or take the short drive up from town, and if the weather is kind there a number of walking tracks around the Mount Canobolas State Conservation Areas for stretching your legs and working off the yummy excess food you’ve been consuming.
Cook Park is said to be one of NSW’s finest exotic parks and a top spot to have a picnic, especially beautiful in early autumn when the fall foliage is in full bloom (remember this is what makes Orange so famous!).
There’s a heritage rose garden and heritage orchard, including historic apple varieties. There’s also a beautiful, original homestead garden, billabong, and exotic and indigenous woodlands garden.
