After a hearty breakfast in Hill End we continue our 4WD Adventure, travelling through outback farmland, crossing the mighty Macquarie River to reach the City of Orange – the “food basket” of NSW.  We take in stunning views from Mt Canobolas, visit a working sheep farm and fruit orchard, and enjoy a superb lunch at the Farmer’s Produce Store.  Guests enjoy a leisurely afternoon sampling superb cool climate wines before retiring to your 4 star motel located right in the heart of Orange – an easy walk to the local shops, hip cafes and restaurants.

After a leisurely breakfast in Orange we travel by 4WD through idyllic country towns like Millthorpe and Bathurst.  We explore the stunning Kanangra Boyd National Park and forage for mushrooms on the forest floor.  We fish for rainbow trout in the pristine Cox’s River – cooking our freshly caught trout with wild mushroom for our picnic lunch.

As a special treat, guests are guided to a sacred site where we view ancient aboriginal rock art and learn the customs & culture of the Wiradjuri tribe.

We return to Katoomba in the late afternoon, as the sun sets over the stunning 3 Sisters.
