Parks, Gardens & Reserves

Share this around

Well-known for its abundance of European trees and superb autumn colour, it is no surprise that some of the prime Orange attractions are its spectacular gardens, parks and reserves.

Visitors to the town will find they are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful parks and gardens. Discover enormous trees dating back to the 1880s towering over original century-old fountains, bandstands and conservatories; contemporary gardens with varied landscapes of orchards, billabongs and woodlands that tell a story of the region’s past and present; an elegant park with formal Victorian-style gardens that pay homage to the town’s fallen war heroes or take a walk along a poplar-lined creek filled with ducks and reeds.

Outside of Orange you will find a rich diversity of landscape including box woodland, open farm country, dams and reservoirs, pine plantations, cave systems, picturesque waterways and eucalypt forests. Find a wealth of public reserves well-facilitated with picnic and BBQ areas as well as public amenities.

Orange weather experiences four distinct seasons, and visitors will want to return time and again to experience the unique natural beauty each season has to offer.

Nangar National Park

Home  -  Places to goParks, Gardens & Reserves

Nestled in the farmlands of the central west are the dramatic peaks and ridges of Nangar, which offers scenic views, bushwalking, birdwatching, camping and picnicking.
Amid the wide open spaces of central west New South Wales, you’ll find the spectacular scenery of Nangar National Park, dominated by the magnificent peak of Mount Nangar to the north. The park’s beautiful wooded hills, easily accessible from Escort Way, create an ideal environment for picnicking, bushwalking, camping and 4WD touring.
Whether you love wildflowers, birdwatching, photography or gazing up at a night sky brilliant with stars, there’s plenty at Nangar to feed the soul. Autumn through to spring offers plenty of fresh and clear days to take long walks, and as the days become warmer, the land comes alive with colour. Don’t miss Terarra Creek, lined with the gorgeous pink honey-myrtle. Keep your camera handy for kangaroos, wallabies, bats, peregrine falcons and wedge-tailed eagles, as well as the breathtaking cliff line and views from Mount Nangar .
