May 7, 2017 - 7th May, 2017. Molong, north of Orange.

7/5/2017. Currabubula to Molong, north of Orange. Another great day. Sun shining when we woke, 4-5 horse floats around the other side of the oval, and we didn't even hear them arrive, young girls from probably 4-8 years old riding with straight backs, under instructions from mum or dad. A good start to to the day as we sat enjoying the training from our chairs as we had breakfast outside. After leaving a donation, we left our great overnight stop - 10/10 - and at Werris Creek, not far into our journey, saw the longest goods train we've...

Feb 23, 2017 - Cowra to Macquarie Woods Recreation Area, Vittoria (About halfway between Orange and Bathurst)

We left Cowra just before 10am with the intention of driving to Bathurst via Orange. The route took us through the historical town of Canowindra (actually pronounced Ca noun dra) where I would have liked to walk the main street to look at some of the buildings, but, as caravan parking was non-existent, we kept going. The road to Orange was quite steep in places and we seemed to do a lot of climbing. There were signs along the way advising to be aware of frost and snow- but no issues with that today! Orange also seemed a very pretty, large,...

Mar 22, 2015 - Orange

Had a wonderful lunch cooked by that famous chef Alicia. Michael and Alicia are a credit to their parents and are a wonderful couple with the world at their feet. They have done the hard yards and made the right decision moving to Orange for their careers. Good luck for the future. Back to Shadforth for the night.

Mar 20, 2015 - Days 54 - 55 UPDATE NOTES

Hi All, Another day another country town and they are all different and they all have a story to tell all of which combine to form the history of our great land. Bathurst was our next stop famous for the great car race and being the oldest settlement in Australia west of the Great Divide. A beaut old city with magnificent buildings and gardens, the begonias in the botanic gardens were wonderful. A trip to Bathurst would not be complete without doing a lap or two or even five of the race circuit, bit limited as the speed limit is 60kph but...

Jun 14, 2013 - Return To Orange

Drove to Orange this morning. Its changed a lot since we lived here (as one may expect). The Bathurst Orange Development Corporation were trying to develop the 2 cities back then – yet another Government football/hot potato that achieved little....We had a look around town took a cuppla shots of our first house, part of the deal of moving to Orange was that you got a new house.... Then drove out to Mt Canobolas via “The Pinnacles”... Mount Canobolas is as claimed the highest point in New South Wales west of the Great Dividing Range, but is...

Apr 22, 2011 - Day 1 done

Bloody hell it is cold! We finally got through the traffic (awesome time for roadworks) and made it to Katoomba. A quick visit to view the cable car and scenic railway, no participation for us, just watching today and we kept on going to try and get some road behind us. It is certainly different with more people in the campervan, bit noisier for starters but it also meant that there were more people to appreciate our sounds of Greece CD. The looks of delight were, well, delighful. We powered on through Oberon, Bathurst, Lucknow (we were...

Feb 5, 2011 - Orange

5th February. We said our goodbyes to Sue and Alan, with the promise to keep in touch, we hope to catch up again in a couple of weeks. Well Lithgow and Bathurst were just large towns, so we decided to continue on to Orange, there are only two caravan parks, one was full due to racing in Bathurst, so we booked into the Canobolas Caravan Park, it was the biggest dump we have stayed in, even rivals Roebourne, the amenities were clean but left a lot to be desired the water pressure was ho hum, and only one light worked and a couple of the doors...

Apr 4, 2009 - Picking up 'Mater - Orange to Oberon

Aaron gets ready for his first flight with the support of his frequent flier big brother. As soon as we started moving Az fell asleep in dads arms so while he has one flight in his flight log he slept through the whole thing, waking up on final approach to Orange. After finalising the paperwork on the new car we headed up on top of Mt Canobolas. After visiting a couple of wineries we headed onto Bathurst. With a new Holden Commodore, albeit a 4wd wagon with only 6 cylinders, what else is a motor racing fan to do, except a few laps of Mt...

Feb 25, 2005 - Orange - to pick apples!

We heard tales from other travellers about Orange, where it's really easy to pick up work as there is lots of fruit to pick, and after working in the city for 3 months we fancied a change so off we went. Orange, is inland from Sydney about 4 hours or so and is named after the Prince of Orange who later became the King of Holland. We were told this by one of the local characters named Dutch who, suprisingly was dutch... We arrived and within a day were working, we camped for free on the owners land, right next to the apple trees, in our...
