Activities and Sports

Canowindra is known as the balloon capital of Australia, and it’s the perfect destination to take a hot air balloon flight, due to its gentle winds and open countryside. Balloon Joy Flights and Aussie Balloon Trek both offer sunrise flights followed by a champagne breakfast. 

Get back to nature, with an afternoon of fruit picking at Thornbrook Orchard, and enjoy eating the fruit during and after the picking! Keen golfers will love the championship 18 hole Duntryleague Golf Course, only two minutes from Orange CBD. Take a Vine Venture Tour and visit cellar doors or learn about the traditional custodians of the land, the Wiradjuri People.
