If you’re planning a stay at the Blayney Budget Motel sometime in the near future, you will have no shortage of things to keep you occupied. Some of the local attractions have been outlined below:
There are plenty of excuses to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Some favourite pastimes include the Carcoar Dam (popular for swimming, boating and fishing – it’s stocked with golden perch, trout and Murray Cod), Heritage Park (a multi-purpose park with a playground and pathways), Abercrombie Caves and Reserve (tours of the cave system are available) and the Cowra Japanese Garden (established to develop the relationship between the shire and Japan).
Blayney is actually filled with heritage buildings, many of which have been classified by the National Trust – it seems that everywhere you look you can spot a piece of the town’s history. To learn more about the area’s history, head to one of the local museums – Golden Memories Museum, Court House Museum, Stoke Stable Museum, Carmanhurst Military Museum, Carcoar Hospital Museum, Twentieth Century Toy Museum or the Golden Era Piano Museum.
If you’re more interested in the region’s artistic and cultural attractions, you will be spoilt for choice. Browse the range of domestic and ornamental pottery available at Carcoar Pottery, peruse the many gifts (like resin jewellery and designer gumboots) at the Drayshed Nursery, purchase a statement piece of jewellery from White Rock Silver, catch an exhibition at Rosebank Art Gallery & Art Space, or wander around Ad’s Place (a painting and pottery gallery).
The region is home to a number of events throughout the year – be sure to book your accommodation early to avoid missing out! Some of the more popular events include the Carcoar Village Fair (held in celebration of Carcoar), the Neville Show, and Carcoar Cup Running Festival (which has national and international fame). There are also plenty of local markets for you to browse, including the Orange Farmers’ Market and Bathurst Farmers’ Market.
Blayney is perfect for anyone wanting to explore the amazing Orange wine region. There are more than 80 vineyards to enjoy, including Phillip Shaw, Brangayne of Orange, Ross Hill and De Salis. Go for a tasting at Small Acres Cyder. Other orchards and farms in the region include Huntley Berry Farm, Hillside Orchards and Mandagery Venison Farm. We highly recommend the Orange Apple Festival in autumn and Orange Wine Festival in spring.
Why not familiarize yourself with the region’s industry? Visit the Central Tablelands Cattle Exchange in Carcoar to see livestock auctioned off, take a tour of the open cut lookout and ore treatment areas with Cadia Valley Operations (no underground tours are offered), explore the Wentworth Gold Mine, see the region from the sky onboard a 1938 Tiger Moth with Orange Vintage Flights, or pay a visit to the Blayney Wind Farm and see the turbines in action.
