Area Profile

Orange is located in central NSW only 3.5 hours drive west of Sydney. The Orange area boasts a very intensive horticulture and viticulture industry. Orange has a growing reputation as a place to enjoy world class culinary delights. This reputation is based on a tradition of quality produce, unique cool climate wines and first class restaurants.

The climate of Orange is characterised by four distinct seasons. In winter the arrival of snow creates a white wonderland, while in spring the parks and gardens of Orange are at their best. Orange has a warm summer and lends itself to outdoor activities such as fishing, swimming, horse riding and bushwalking. It is said that autumn is the best season in Orange, when the city’s 100 parks and gardens change from bright greens to burnt reds and yellows.

Due to its geographical position, the city draws a vast hinterland of smaller towns. With its extensive shopping centres and modern retail complexes, four high schools and three hospitals, Orange has a steady population growth and stable property market.
