With its wide tree-lined streets and many beautiful parks and gardens Orange retains
much of the elegance and splendour of the 19th century. 
There are many beautifully restored, handsome 19th century buildings - Victorian Gothic, neo classical, stuccoed Italianate.  Buildings with stained glass windows and pressed metal ceilings.
