I’m in the central west of New South Wales at a town called Orange. Orange is 206 kilometres (128 miles), west of Sydney, at an altitude of 862 metres (2,828 ft). Orange has a population of nearly forty thousand
Its most significant landmark is Mount Canobolas with an altitude of 1,395 metres (4,577 ft) and it is around the base of this volcanic range that we will discover and enjoy the scenery of Orange and the surrounding towns.We make the often snow-capped summit of Mount Canobolas our first port of call.
We’re in Orange to see it and do it by bike for the inaugural Bicycle NSW Discovery Weekend.
