Orange - Regional NSW
With a great lifestyle, affordable housing and a diverse economy, Orange is one of Australia’s most consistent and reliable investment locations.
Not only does its food culture and wineries make Orange a popular weekend escape for people from Sydney, many people come to study at Charles Sturt University, or gain work experience at the Orange Hospital, or work in government departments - and decide to stay permanently.
Orange house prices are one-third of the state capital and the city offers an enviable lifestyle alternative to Sydney.
Orange is a substantial regional centre with a strong and diverse economy, which continues to evolve as one of the most important regional centres in New South Wales.
The Orange economy doesn’t depend on mining, although its economy has been boosted by major resources projects (and an $800 million expansion of the Cadia gold mine has been announced). It has a solid track record as both an economy and a property market thanks to elements of education, agriculture, health and manufacturing.
