A quiet, historic village, Cudal NSW has rich wheat and sheep farming heritage and is diverse in industry. The town is particularly picturesque during canola cropping season, creating a patchwork of green and gold across the landscape. Platypus can be spotted in the Boree Creek, which runs through the town.

Built on important road in the region once used to transport gold, it was the perfect halfway point between Orange and Eugowra to rest and hide from bushrangers who frequented the area.

The old EW Corden Store building offers a step back in time to experience rural life as it was over 60 years ago. It remains the best example of early 20th century architecture within the town. Fifty years ago it was a bustling emporium that mixed saddlery with haberdashery, and is now home to the community hub known as The Cabonne Food, Wine and Cultural Centre. Though now containing a cafe, crafts, antiques and library, one rare attraction remains - a still-working flying fox change dispenser. Once common in the post WWII era, only a handful in Australia now remain.

Today Cudal produces fine wool, wheat, angora goats, canola, orchards, and egg production. Notably it is also home to one of the largest single vineyards in Australia.
