Orange is a vibrant modern city of 38,000 people.  It's history started back in the 1820's and it is also close to the gold fields of Ophir where the first payable gold was found.  The city is replete with elegant buildings from colonial times, wide tree lined streets and beautiful parks and gardens.

The Royal Hotel, modernised in the 1930s, was the passenger pick-up point for Cobb and Co coaches.

Beyond the city, orchards and vineyards abound.  Almost half of the NSW apple crop comes from this region. Mount Canobolas and Lake Canobolas are also lovely spots to visit.

This is a very attractive city and well worth spending some time here and in the surrounding region.
