Orange is a town built on gold, the source of Australia's first gold rush in the 1850's.
Today, food and wine are the new gold, drawing visitors from all over the country as one of the most exciting and innovative dining and tasting destinations.
A thriving restaurant scene has been built on Orange's fresh regional produce, complemented by the unique high elevation character of the region's wines.
The big annual highlight event is Wine Week. Held each October, it's a week-long spring festival celebrating all the good things about Orange. Cool climate wines tasting, art shows, special lunches and dinners, live music, and produce markets make this an essential part of any wine lover's calendar.
Food Week, each April, gives you the chance to visit the sources of our amazing food and wines, and get behind the scenes at farms, orchards, wineries and kitchens.
