Autumnal Events in Orange
Autumn is our favourite season here in Orange - with the crisp mornings and leaves changing to red and golden hues, there is no shortage of things to love. With this in mind, we have put together a list of some upcoming events you won't want to miss!
Orange Chamber Music Festival (28 April – 1 May)
The Annual Orange Chamber Music Festival is something many Orange locals look forward to and visitors come for in droves. The four-day event features performances by a huge range of ensembles, hosted at some of the region’s best music venues. Chamber music aficionados will recognise some of the bigger acts on the list, including the Streeton Trio, and those just wanting to dip their toes in the water should take a look at ‘Cultured’ - a full day of free activities open to the community within the Orange Cultural Precinct. Single tickets are available for specific performances while gold and platinum passes are a great option for those who want all-inclusive access to everything the festival has to offer.
Eco-Tour Orange (4 Feb – 10 July)
These e-bike adventures are now available year-round but we happen to think that the cooler months of April and May are the best times to ride! Jump on an electric bike and take a fun, five-hour tour around the Orange region, checking out the colours, sights and sound of Orange in Autumn. Putting even more ‘eco’ into ‘eco-tour’, you’ll make a special stop at Gosling Creek Reserve, a reclaimed pine plantation, where you can gaze out over the thriving wetlands and marvel at the fascinating wildlife. You’ll also visit Lake Canobolas, which is right next to our luxury Orange accommodation, and enjoy a complimentary coffee at the lakeside.
Live Music Saturdays (9 April – 28 May)
Live Music Saturdays kicked off on the 9th of April and run right through to the end of May. Book a spot at Stockman’s Ridge Wines, just 15-minutes from our Orange luxury accommodation, and see some great live acts for only $5 per person. Add a grazing platter to your booking and bring along the kids and dog for a fun family afternoon out! Numbers are limited, so book early to confirm your Saturday session among the vines.
Millamong Polo Country Classic Tournament (23-24 April)
If you’ve never been to the polo, you couldn’t ask for a better introduction than the Millamong Polo Country Classic Tournament. The popular annual event is a great alternative to the races if you love horses and long days out with friends. The action-packed tournament features multiple games over the two days and while general admission is only $10, there is also the option to book a field-side tent with a table and chairs to give you front-row seats to all the action! Millamong Country Club is in the town of Mandurama, around a 50-minute drive from our luxury Orange accommodation - so we recommend organising transport in advance.
Alice in Wonderland (6-15 May)
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday over two weekends in May, Orange Theatre Company presents a musical take on this family favourite. See all your favourite characters, from the white rabbit to the Cheshire cat, as they dance, sing and laugh their way across the stage at the Orange Civic Theatre. With both 1pm and 7.30pm showings on Saturdays, make this event either a fun family occasion or a great excuse for a night out with friends.
Liam Benson: Hello, good to meet you (14 May-24 July)
Our final event on this list is one for those who appreciate a unique art exhibition. Liam Benson is a multi-disciplinary artist who examines culture, sub-culture and identity, and this exhibition focuses specifically on the way that horses interact. The colourful and highly sensory experience combines sculpture, video and wearables and is on show at the Orange Regional Gallery from 14 May.
