At the foothills of the dormant volcano Mount Canobolas lie the picture-perfect vineyards and rustic, Federation-era houses of Orange. The surrounding area's varying altitudes and cool climate make Orange the perfect home base for produce like hazelnuts, truffles, cherries, figs and, of course, wine. Drive through cherry blossoms, wattle trees and gold mine adjacent creeks (that still yield a nugget or two) to find some of Australia’s most interesting wine-makers, a bevy of up-and-coming designers and artists, and a thriving, locally-focussed food scene.
