In need of a country escape but only have a weekend up your sleeve? Then hit the road after work on a Friday and head for the rolling hills of the Southern Highlands. Spend the weekend discovering beautiful countryside walks, meeting local kangaroos, wine tasting at picturesque vineyards, exploring quaint little villages or just cozying up in a country cottage. The tranquility of the hills is ready and waiting for you, and even better, it’s just a one hour drive from the city.
If you’re considering a long weekend in Orange, don’t think twice. Just a 3 and a half hour scenic drive from Sydney and you’ll be in the beautiful rolling hills of Orange, lined with vineyards, orchards and up and coming restaurants. Autumn is the time to go – a beautiful filter of oranges, reds and yellows take over and create stunning countryside scenery to feast your eyes on.
