Orange is a delicious destination for wine-and-food tourism. The region has a reputation for distinctive cool-climate wines (see www.winesoforange.com.au). Orchard fruits, berries and nuts are also grown here, and quality lamb and beef are raised.
Dozens of cellar doors and farm gates are open to the public – a good place to begin exploration is the visitor centre. Pick up the Orange & District Wine & Food Guide, with a map outlining a range of routes in town and beyond. It also highlights cellar doors, farm gates (berry farms, orchards) and local-produce outlets (providores, microbrewers), plus picnic areas along the way.
