March: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.

Orange Botanic Gardens


Orange Botanic Gardens is a naturally undulating 17 hectare site which features an impressive native and exotic plant collection. The Gardens were officially opened in 1988 for the Australian Bicentenary with plantings ranging from original native and exotic trees to newly developed displays.

The Gardens are an ideal place in which to relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery and district views. As well as being a popular site for bird watching, the Gardens provide numerous options for a family picnic or a relaxing stroll.

The popular Country Walk offers all the pleasures of a varying landscape. The walk includes the original homestead garden, billabong, exotic and indigenous woodlands, a heritage orchard and rose garden, set below the country church and a sundial you can be part of!

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

The Orange Botanic Gardens are open daily from 7.30am till dusk and admission is free. Playground and barbecue facilities area available nearby at the Orange Adventure Playground.

Ophir Reserve


The scene of Australia's first Gold Rush, Ophir Reserve is a rugged yet peaceful reminder of the colonial past. The first Australian payable gold discovery was made here in 1851, just 30 kilometres north east of Orange. Now a picturesque picnic and camping ground at the junction of the Lewis Ponds and Summer Hill Creeks evidence of old alluvial, reef and deep lead mines is still visible to those exploring the area.

While Ophir has much to offer with camping, fishing, fossicking and exploring the old diggings, it is not a "museum" and remains much as the diggers left it all those years ago. Care should be taken around the old open mine shafts. Hire a gold pan from the Orange Visitor Information Centre and try your luck in Summer Hill Creek just as the early settlers did during the gold rush of the 1850s.
