Orange is a city in New South Wales, 254km outside Sydney. It is largely an agricultural and mining city, and is also known as 'Colour City' because of its distinct seasons. Mount Canobolas and its lake are close by, so car hire in Orange is a good way to get to the mountain, from which there are amazing views of the city. Orange also produces a lot of fruit apart from Oranges, which don't grow in the climate, and the city is well known for its fine food. Hiring a car in Orange could take you to fine restaurants in beautiful locations.
Orange has a lively music scene, and there are several music clubs that meet on set days of the month so you can catch a band in town. Lake Canobolas is in easy reach by hiring a car in Orange, and the large lake is fed by snowmelt from Mount Canobolas and rain from the Towac Valley. There are platypus in the lake, and wallabies live around it. You will have to watch carefully to see a platypus though. From the lake, visitors renting a car in Orange can drive up to the mountain and see where the lake originates.
Orange City has great food, great music, and beautiful surroundings. A short drive out of the city is the Borenore Caves Reserve, where you can explore the caves (accompanied by good shoes and a torch). The Tunnel Cave is completely dark, so you will need to be a little bit brave to explore it, but the Arch Cave is reasonable well lit, and both have interesting rock formations. Those not wanting to venture into the caves can explore the long hiking trails around the reserve, which also contains orchards and vineyards ? Orange is becoming well known for producing good wine.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
