A little about Orange
Orange is at the heart of one of the most beautiful and productive areas in the State. Named after Prince William of Orange (who later became the King of Holland), the City and its surrounding area are enjoying a growing reputation for rare and exotic produce thanks to its cool climate and rich volcanic soils.
Mt Canobolas, the highest peak between the Blue Mountains and Perth in Western Australia, offers panoramic views, seven walking tracks, fishing and canoeing at Lake Canobolas Reserve.
It's not difficult to see why Orange is called Australia's Colour City, as a walk or drive around the city or surrounds at any time of the year reveals a kaleidoscope of colours.
