Affectionately known as the heart of New South Wales, the city of Orange is the perfect base from which to enjoy the region’s fine food and wine in a quiet country setting.

Although only a short three-and-a-half hour drive west of Sydney over the majestic Blue Mountains, this wine-producing part of NSW is best discovered by luxury train rideThe Provenance Express, a carefully curated and hosted, 3-day food and wine travel experience from Sydney to Orange will take you directly to the source during Australia’s longest-running regional food festival – Orange F.O.O.D Week.

With a focus on organic and biodynamic food and wine experiences as well as sustainable and holistic farming practices, the Provenance Express itinerary has been hand-selected and jam-packed with foodie adventures aimed at introducing guests to the abundant Orange region during harvest time.
