With a rich history in the arts and a flourishing cultural scene, Orange NSW has become a major creative hub for the area. For a regional town, it has impressive arts facilities including museums, galleries, theatres and libraries, as well as smaller independent galleries.

A great starting point for visitors is the cultural precinct opposite Robertson Park, which takes up an entire city block. The magnificent new Orange Regional Museum, which also houses the excellent Orange Visitors Centre and a cafe, are some unmissable Orange attractions. The building was awarded the much-coveted Sulman Award for Architecture and houses a very well curated permanent exhibition detailing the history of Orange. The nearby Orange Regional Gallery offers an ever-changing program of contemporary exhibitions as well as an inspired program of art workshops for children.

A wealth of fascinating museums can also be found in Orange’s surrounding towns and villages. See 360 million year old fossils at Canowindra’s Age Of Fishes Museum, which was described by broadcaster Sir David Attenborough as ‘world class’. The Eugowra Bushranger Museum and Yeoval’s Banjo Patterson Museum are also well worth a visit.

Culturally, you will find no shortage of things to do in Orange, with the Orange Civic Theatre’s vibrant program featuring national dance, opera and theatre companies, stand-up comedy, local theatre productions and live music.
