In the foothills of Mt Canobolas the state's highest mountain range west of the Great Dividing Range, lies a town with a fruity name totally unrelated to its thriving apple and wine industries. Orange is a smidge more than 250 kilometres west of Sydney (around 3.5 hours drive), making it a little too far for a day trip, but thats ok, because this idyllic region deserves at least a couple of indulgent days. Pamper your palate with epicurean delights and world-class wines that keep even the most discerning connoisseurs tongues wagging (or swishing, in this case). That, combined with the wide, picturesque streets and the interesting historical villages, make it an all round perfect escape. One thing to consider before you go is that it can get mighty cold in winter, so be sure to pack your winter woollies!
