Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Molong lies on the Mitchell Highway between Orange and Dubbo nestled in a small valley.

Filled with a number of historic buildings, it is a popular place to stop for lunch on longer trips, with several cafés, bakeries, etc. There's a number of facilities including local hospital, parks, and recreation ground. The main shopping area is off the Mitchell Highway and offers respite from the large volumes of trucks that pass through the area.

The name Molong comes from the Aboriginal word for 'all rocks'.
