Orange’s Most Spectacular Views
We live in an absolutely beautiful part of the world – there is no doubt about that. The natural scenery is one of the biggest and best drawcards for guests who stay at our luxury accommodation in Orange. But where can you experience Orange’s most spectacular views? We’ve got the inside word on the very best places to soak it all in. And the best part is that all of them are easily accessible from our Orange luxury accommodation.
This walk is perfect for those who want a bit of fresh air, exercise and some gorgeous scenery—but don’t have hours on end to spare! From Lakeview Luxury Retreat, the carpark for the Pinnacle Lookout is just a ten-minute drive away and it’s one of the best spots in Orange to watch the sunrise or sunset. After around a 15-minute climb up a fair few stairs, you’re rewarded with spectacular 270-degree views across the Towac Valley and the city of Orange.
Orange Botanic Gardens is 17 hectares of lush and vibrant plant life – the ideal place to spend a long afternoon in the springtime. Situated on the northern side of the city, the Botanic Gardens are just a 15-minute drive from our luxury accommodation in Orange. There are several areas to explore: the Sensory Garden, Weeping Elm Lawn, Viburnum Garden and the Winter Garden. Native trees, exotic species, colourful roses and a serene billabong can all be found among the gardens, and there are some spectacular sculptures to admire as you wander around the grounds. The Orange Botanic Gardens is another idyllic destination for a picnic with a view.

If you’re a fan of bird watching, natural beauty and tranquility, Mount Canobolas is the place for you. Stretching 1395 metres above sea level, Mount Canobolas is an iconic natural attraction in the Orange region. The Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area actually offers a selection of trails ranging from 15-minute walks to two-hour hikes. See the glorious Federal Falls, explore the ancient Arch Cave or take in the scenic views from the Summits walking track which connects two of the mountain’s highest points. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a grey currawong – a mysterious native bird which is believed to be in decline. Take a picnic lunch if you’ve got time to spare – there are plenty of picnic tables and bench seats within the conservation area and some BBQ facilities too.
From a Hot Air Balloon
Hot air balloons are often seen drifting over the countryside on a clear, still day. The view from an Orange hot air balloon lets you see the landscape in a whole new light, providing a birds-eye view of the rolling hills, and the many picturesque vineyards and orchards that are scattered across the region. Best experienced at dawn, you’ll witness the landscape come to life from high above. You might even spot our Orange luxury accommodation far down below! A slow morning drift across beautiful Orange is one of the very best hot air balloon experiences in NSW.
