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

Orange lies on the Mitchell Hwy, marks one of NSW's most important rail junctions and to the east of the striking Mt Canobolas. It is surrounded by rolling hills and fertile farming land that produces an abundance of fruit, crops, sheep and cattle. Despite its name, the city is not known for its citrus production however does produce a high quantity of apples and cherries. Nearby Orange is the Banjo Paterson Park (5 km east), Borenore Caves, Orange Botanic Gardens and the Regional Art Gallery. The city's CBD is very attractive and colourful with a good blend of native and deciduous trees lining the central streets.
