Nicole arranged this tour so well that it appealed to a group with differing ideas and views on food, wine and beer. The only thing she could not control was the weather, but her expertise was obvious when extremely heavy rain did not impact on the day, and actually added to the enjoyment when the outdoors picnic was moved to a magnificent farm home. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Booked a walking tour with Nicole from Country Food Trails for a group of girlfriends. The tour starts with a nice easy walk around the town explaining the history of the buildings and the people of Orange. Followed by a Bush Tucker talk and tasting with Indigenous food and culture told to us by a local guide, a definite must when in Orange. You don't want to miss savouring the delights Gerald has made for tasting. Finishing the tour with local wines and food all sourced by Nicole form local businesses. Nicole's endless knowledge of Orange will keep you informed and entertained. Such a fun day with friends. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Orange. Even if you have visited orange before, add this tour to your next visit, or any of Country Food Trail Tours, there is something for everyone.

Such a beautiful way to spend a day in Orange. Learnt about the history of the town and its surrounds, was introduced to bush tucker - such an eye opener and visited a wonderful family run small winery as well as other small distributors. Perfect in every way. Will return again for more . Thankyou Nicole for sharing your love of Orange with us.

We wanted to spend a few days in beautiful Orange with good friends and booked tours with Nicole of Country Food Trails, based in Orange. We cannot recommend them highly enough – we had a great weekend and the tours were first rate. The Indigenous Cultural tour was amazing, hosted by a senior First Nation man, Gerald, who led us through the indigenous history and the local foodstuffs. We then visited the memorial and gravesite of a local indigenous man who guided the original white explorers into what was then unknown (to the English) territory. We had driven past the sign and turn off many times over the years but had never understood, or taken the trouble to find out, the significance of this historic sacred site. We were very taken by this period of history and its significance to our First Nation Australians. A visit then to another significant park nearby was fantastic and very restful, Gerald cooking a very good lunch with some local ingredients – he is a great cook. Every Australian should do this tour. The first day ended with a visit to a local winery where the grapes were laid out near Mt. Canobolas and looking gorgeous in the afternoon sun. Of course, it would have seemed impolite not to help taste some produce.
The following day we took the historic walk around Orange led by Sharon who pointed out the history of the city, the beautiful old houses and Federation buildings - the gardens were stunning, the parks restful and beautifully designed. Well done Country Food Trails. They were also able to help suggest accommodation alternatives and helped with transfers from our hotel. If you are unable to travel overseas at present – explore our local regional areas and Orange was amazing.
