About Millthorpe

Set among gently rolling hills close to the city of Orange, Millthorpe is the very picture of Country NSW charm, with many fine heritage buildings and streetscapes.

Classified by the National Trust, Millthorpe is 246 km north-west of Sydney. Take a step back through time at the Golden Memories Museum or enjoy a self-guided walking tour of Millthorpe, with local visitor information from Millthorpe Newsagency & General Store (which also has accommodation).

Drive to the rustic hamlet of Forest Reefs, a former goldmining village with historic churches and public buildings. At the Millthorpe Garden Ramble, you can visit 10 of the town's most beautiful gardens over a weekend in November. The Millthorpe Markets are another good reason to head to the town. Taking place on the first Sunday in April and December, the markets have more than 200 stalls with clothing and jewellery, toys, woodwork, second-hand goods and gourmet produce. Pretty Christmas decorations are a highlight of the December event.
