What is your overall view about the Orange Regional Food & Wine Trail proposal?

Thanks for sharing! 


The Central West region has an amazing offerings from historic villages, wineries, fine food, architecture and scenery that can be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. The Orange BUG has developed a strategy to interlink some of these experiences. We believe this will be great value to the region economically, environmentally and socially.

The Orange BUG is thrilled to have to have their proposal for cycling and walking trails linking wineries and food producers in the Orange region move closer to reality. In early 2023 the BUG received a grant from the NSW Government to professionally develop the concept and analyse the cost and benefits. 

The BUG undertook this project over 2023 with tourism consultants TRC who developed a business case and feasibility study with key stakeholders including Orange and Cabonne Councils, Orange 360, and Orange Regional Wineries Association.


Read our 2021 prospectus for multi-purpose cycling and walking trails to attract all year round tourism to the Central West. This document proposes a network of trails that build on existing cycling and walking infrastructure to create better tourism experiences in the region.
