    44 Places of interest, that is quite a bit to see on the Heritage Drive.

    Orange, with its Tree lined streets is a pretty place, add in the elegance and splendour of the 19th century homes & buildings, and it becomes a delight to wander or drive around.

    Some of the old buildings you will see are..........

    the Holy Trinity Church of Orange (1879) and the beautiful Anglican church, on the Cnr. Anson & Byng Streets, an example of high victorian Gothic Revival, its tall steeple dominating much of the city.
    Duntryleague Guest House (1876), Orange Court House, and the Orange Town Hall.

    Then there is the row of ironwork-decorated houses built in 1876, known as Bowen Terrace, a rare example of their period, and the Orange Public School with its unique appearance, it looks more like a church than a school with its high pointed windows, steeply pitched roof and spire.

    Brochures are available from the local Historical Society and Visitor Information Centre

    Open 7 days .......9.00am - 5.00pm

    My visit to Orange was short... there with a friend for a shooting match. Our drive from Penrith just had us driving quickly through the town out to the field and then out to Dubbo. It was a lovely field!

    Equipment: Believe you have to belong to the the shooting club... need a rifle, a permit, and some ammo. My friend puts his shells together rather than buying them premade, so that he can control the weight and control of them.
