Orange - Regional NSW
Orange has emerged as an affordable alternative to Sydney for people to live and work, with house prices one-third of the state capital, and it continues to evolve as one of the most important regional economies in New South Wales.
A key drawcard is the growing health-care sector, following a $250 million extension of the Orange Hospital, enticing professionals to relocate to the regional city.
With plenty of amenities and situated about three hours from Sydney, Orange offers a desirable and affordable lifestyle.
Orange is a substantial regional centre with a strong and diverse economy. It doesn’t depend on mining, although its economy has been boosted by major resources projects. It has a solid track record as both an economy and a property market thanks to elements of education, agriculture, health and manufacturing.
A master-planned village and expansion of facilities around the local airport are just two examples of the projects that are enhancing Orange’s solid regional status.
