Orange: NSW’s Food & Wine Hub

A mere four-hour drive (or 50 minute flight) west of Sydney and you’ll find arguably regional NSW’s best food and wine experience. Most commonly known for its thriving food and wine scene, Orange NSW has quickly become famous for its trendy cafes, bars and food options. But there are many more things to do in Orange than what meets the eye (or Google search). So what are you waiting for? Start planning your Orange weekend away!

 

Orange F.O.O.D Week

Cheezels? Twisties? Fanta? Well not exactly, it’s a different kind of Orange. F.O.O.D. stands for Food Of Orange District and is held over 10 days in April every year. It’s a great opportunity for ‘the Food Basket of NSW’ to come alive and showcase fine fresh produce and cool climate wines!
