Welcome to Central NSW

Both Orange and Mudgee are must-dos for foodies and winos alike, while travelling families love Dubbo, Parkes and Bathurst for their selection of kid-friendly museums and attractions. Further afield, pretty Cowra – with its Japanese gardens, peace monuments and war cemeteries – offers a glimpse into this quiet little town's unexpected and tragic role in Australia's wartime past.

Keep heading west and, soon enough, things start drying up and the rich, red outback soil takes over.
