Spring School Holidays

Home  -  EventsSpring School Holidays

Spring has sprung in the Orange360 region, and while we remain in lockdown this school holiday period, there’s still plenty to discover in the region.

The weather is great for taking a walk one of our many trails and with less visitors, it’s the perfect recipe for discovering the stunning natural attractions in our region.

Local businesses are also putting together school holiday packs that can help keep the kids entertained at home, from art packs to board games, check out the array of offerings from local businesses below.

As per current NSW Public Order, please remember that all travel is restricted to your own LGA where possible or 5km from your residential address. Remember to wear your mask when visiting businesses, get tested if you have symptoms and stay updated on the latest advice from NSW Health here.

Mount Murga Walking Track

Home  -  EventsSpring School Holidays

If you’re reasonably fit, why not take on Mount Murga walking track? It’s a varied and attractive walk up the side of Mount Murga and along the ridgeline to the plateau and lookout at the top. From here, you can see the extensive open farmland lying to the north of the park.

Follow an old bulldozer track up the hill through red stringybark and scribbly gum woodland, and in spring or early summer, keep your eyes open for flowering orchids, such as spotted doubletail or midget greenhood. A real treat may await you at the summit, where wattles and goodenia light up the surrounds with bright yellow hues.

Wildlife such as kangaroos, wallabies and many bird species can be seen in the surrounding vegetation. Listen out for animals – even if you don’t see them, you may hear a kangaroo as it hops away or birds calling in the treetops or shrubs.
