excellent hiking, canoeing, and swimming in the picturesque
area, with good caravan and camping facilities.
A 200km foray northwest to Orange, a town famous for its
cool-climate wines, fresh produce and creative chefs gives you
another chance to work out the taste buds (and the liver). The
town and its surrounds enjoy a growing reputation for rare and
exotic produce thanks to the climate and fruitful soil.
A visit to local cafés, award-winning restaurants and farmers
markets in Orange and nearby Cabonne will support this
reputation. About 40 cool-climate wineries operate in the area
that has now become one of the most exciting wine regions in
Australia. The spectacular lookouts at ancient volcanic peak, Mt
Canobolas, offer a chance to feast the eyes on panoramic views
of Orange, and burn off some calories along its seven walking
From one wine Mecca to another; from here we’re off to the
Riverina region, which is located above the Murray River
bordering NSW and Victoria, and responsible for the majority of
NSW’s wine production. Although most likely coincidental, it’s
also an area famous for its production of Australian sporting
heroes. 210km southwest of Orange is Cootamundra, the
birthplace of cricketing legend Sir Donald Bradman.
Bradman’s former home is now heritage listed and operates
as a museum. With five galleries, a 100-seat theatre, special
exhibitions, an extensive collection of memorabilia, and rare
archival film footage, the museum celebrates the life of Australia’s
greatest ever batsman.
In Wagga Wagga, 93km southwest, this proud sporting
tradition is further commemorated at the Sporting Hall of Fame.
Not to stray too far from the theme of our adventure, Wagga’s
Charles Sturt Winery, winner of 23 trophies for its premium
winemaking, has an excellent cellar door open for tastings seven
days a week. They also produce a great range of farmhouse
cheeses and olive oil.
