Since we moved to the Central Ranges of NSW, thought it would be interesting to keep a record of how we get on. Happy reading!

Getting Frosty in Orange
If you are one of those people who love a log fire and getting dressed up in your winter coat, woolly hat, scarf and gloves then Orange during winter is the perfect place to visit! Frostfest is about to start and there are a plethora of cultural, food and wine related activities going on between July 30th and August 7th. To see the full programme of Frostfest events click here.
I can highly recommend spending some time out at Small Acre’s Cyder in Borenore, we took Mr L’Orange’s parents last year and loved the cider tasting accompanied by pork and apple sausages and mash. This year, James and Gail are offering homemade apple pie and mulled cider – what’s not to love on a cold winter’s day? The cider tasting runs the same way as a wine tasting and the ciders on offer range from sparkling to dry and then to sweet and dessert style – tres delish.
The cellar door is usually pretty packed so make sure you book so you get a seat and more importantly so they don’t run out of apple pie.
On the ‘arts’ side of things, even the Australian Ballet Company & Bell Shakespeare Company are venturing out to Orange for Frostfest this year. I can’t wait for the end of July when I see Julius Cesar and then in August I’m going to see the ballet Don Quixote with some girlfriends (Mr L’Orange had no interest whatsoever). The best thing about shows at the Orange Civic Theatre is that they are typically half the price of seeing the exact same show in Sydney. Plus you don’t need to worry about finding parking and can be home 10 minutes after the show finishes.
Hope this has inspired you and we see you in Orange soon.
