Where’s Orange

Getting There

You’ve got plenty of options to get to Orange, daily bus, plane and train services operate from Sydney. Otherwise if you have your own car the drive should take about 3hrs. ( Make sure to check out Blue Mountains along the way)

Accommodation

Hopefully you find a farm or orchid that will let you camp on site, if not there are caravan parks, motels and hotels.

Not Fruit Picking – What to do?

If you’re still around Orange Wine week in October is a great shout. Go hiking on the Mount Canobolas walking tracks or explore the heritage trail.

Extending Your Australian Working Holiday Visa

Many harvest jobs will meet the Second Australian Working Holiday Visa eligibility and count towards the 88 days of specified work. Some regional locations and jobs are ineligible which could lead to the Department of Immigration rejecting your application. So remember to confirm whether or not your fruit picking or harvest job will count towards the Second Australian WHV.
