    Hi Rita

  3. I have to admit I wasn’t aware of the City of Orange close to Sydney. I know about Orange County in California, home of Disneyland. But I guess Orange here in Australia is way closer for me, so I might go there first :)

  4. During our travels as a kid, we use to stop in Orange to pick apples and cherries. (I know its a bit strange) We use to stay at the Canobolas Caravan Park and I can always remember Orange as being really hot as we were always there in December.

    I have never been to Orange, but I have a friend who has family there, and every school holidays when she says she is heading off to Orange, she always makes it sounds so inviting, that I think that one day I’d like to go and visit.

    Thanks, I will definitely check out all the hotels in Orange that you’ve mentioned.

    Thank you for pointing out the birth place of one of our greatest poets, Banjo Paterson. Odd isn’t it that Orange cannot grow oranges because it is too cold! Quite ironic!
