Planning on visiting Orange F.O.O.D Week? Why not carpool or ride share to Orange and our festival events. And if you book into one of our Signature Events, let us do the driving and book on one of our event buses.

Orange is NSW’s underrated foodie capital. Cornucopias of cheese, rich roast lamb dinners, creamy Chardonnays — Orange is officially the new black.

From tiny acorns, giant oak trees grow and such has been the case with Orange F.O.O.D Week. It has over two decades of history - it still pushes on - and it’s always fresh, always fresh.

Now home to a prosperous wine region, established local producers, brewers, coffee roasters and a competitive cafe scene, Orange is not a just pit stop anymore, but a true food-lover’s destination.

Orange F.O.O.D Week left me gobsmacked! Here’s a country town where 150 locals knock back a delicious and audacious meal. It was a dinner which I will always remember. And it was only the first of 25. Good on you Orange. You are the premier gastronomic city in NSW.

Compared to winemaking behemoths like the Barossa Valley, Orange is still hovering just below the radar, which makes this the perfect time to get amongst it, before every man and his dog knows about it.

First piece of Orange advice: forget everything you know about Chardonnay. Second? You're going to taste some of Australia's best, best, best wines in one weekend, so bring some Berocca and start fighting over whose designated driver.
