A picturesque heritage-listed town, Millthorpe NSW is a step back to the 1900s with a contemporary edge. Cobbled, bluestone-lined streets border relatively unchanged 19th century buildings, many now housing fine dining restaurants, sophisticated homewares stores or boutique accommodation. Most were constructed towards the end of the 19th century; the former Grand Western Lodge and Millthorpe Railway Station being two of many fine examples. Grand verandahs with cast iron lattice balustrades shelter shopfronts with traces of their past lives still etched onto the glass windows.

Millthorpe restaurants and cafes range from pretty cottages with cafe courtyards to fine dining options, which are impressive enough to be destinations in their own right. Historic bluestone stables have been reinvented as a cellar door, and there are two classic country pubs in also in the village.

Millthorpe has a strong community spirit, many festivals and markets dot the calendar, including the highly popular twice-yearly Millthorpe Markets.

An easy 20 minute drive from Millthorpe to Orange, the town provides the perfect quiet base from which to explore the region. Millthorpe accommodation delivers a vast range of options, from tastefully decorated cottages, B&Bs, farmsteads as well as hotels and a motel.

Millthorpe weather tends to be temperate, with warm summer days but still cool mornings, and cold winters often including a few days of snowfall.
