Bletchington: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Orange Botanic Gardens


The Orange Botanic Gardens feature an impressive native and exotic plant collection. Officially opened in 1988 for the Australian Bicentenary, it has plantings ranging from the original homestead garden to newly developed displays.

The Country Walk offers all the pleasures of a stroll through varying landscapes. Features of the walk include the original homestead garden, billabong, exotic and indigenous woodlands, heritage orchard including historic apple varieties, heritage rose garden set below the country church and analemmatic sundial (human involvement sundial).

Located between the two billabongs set below the Country Church is the Federation Arch, a stainless steel sculpture designed by Bert Flugelman and donated to the Gardens and residents of Orange by the Orange Regional Arts Foundation.

The Orange Botanic Gardens are ideal for a mid-morning stroll, leisurely afternoon picnic or an enjoyable game of bocce on the lawns.

Emmaville Cottage


Along with Banjo Paterson Park on Ophir Road, the Emmaville Cottage near the Botanic Gardens is a tangible link to the period more than 150 years ago when Patterson was born.
The prefabricated cottage is believed to date from the 1850s. The American redwood panels were shipped from the United States and assembled to build large numbers of cottages in Australia. The four room cottage is typical of early Australian vernacular architecture.

The cottage was previously located at the Waratahs sports field, once part of the Narrambla Estate. The cottage is believed to be one of the last farm buildings from the Narrambla property. The Narrambla farming property was the where the mother of Banjo Paterson came to stay before the birth of her son in 1864.

The Emmaville Cottage is one of a number of key sites around Orange with connections to one Australia's best-known poets, Banjo Patterson.

Cook Park


The area of open space was reserved in 1845, the park was proclaimed in 1873 and in 1882, was officially named in honour of Captain James Cook.

Cook Park embodies the changing colours of Orange. Summer's arrival brings gardens of stunning and vibrant, coloured roses. From February to April, hundreds of begonias bloom in the Blowes Conservatory and in Spring, a burst of colour arrives with masses of tulips and daffodils.

This National Trust area is also home to duck ponds, swings (for kids), an aviary featuring predominantly native birdlife (for bird watchers), the Lattice Fernery (for everyone!) and for the craft lover, there is the Cook Park Guildry.

However you spend your time in Cook Park, be sure to leave time to do the self-guided heritage walk. Brochures of the walk are available in the Guildry or from the Orange Visitor Information Centre.
