Event information

Orange and its surrounding region celebrate the Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival in February every year. Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson was born at 'Narrambla' Orange on the 17 February, 1864. What better way to celebrate this great Australian's life and work than through a Festival in the district in which he was born. From Bush poetry, school performances, professional entertainers, markets, golf, barbecues and camp over cooking, there is also the opportunity for community members and visitors to Orange to show their skills in poetry recital and musical entertainment.

The Dubbo XPT runs daily between Dubbo and Sydney and stops at Orange. On Mondays the Broken Hill Explorer runs between Broken Hill and Sydney and stops at Orange, coming back on Tuesday. In addition, NSW TrainLink runs daily services from Sydney to Lithgow with connecting coaches to Orange.
