Orange, with a population of 40,000, it is a major regional city with a true provincial feel. Located in Central West NSW, just over 3 hours from the capital and nearby coast lines, it has a regional airport which runs regular flights daily to Sydney, and Monday to Friday flights to Brisbane QLD.

Orange is a popular food and wine region. It has a mild temperate climate with warm summers and cool winters with snowfall. Many health professionals choose Orange as their home as it offers prestigious schooling, affordable housing and land, a lifestyle where you can spend more of your precious time with family and friends, greater opportunities for community involvement, along with employment growth in health care, social assistance, retail, education and training.

In Orange you can enjoy life without the challenges of metropolitan living.
