You can take the'Heritage Trail' to see Orange as it once was - this includes in part - Holy Trinity Church of Orange (1879) - the beautiful Anglican church, on the Cnr. Anson & Byng Streets which is a great example of high victorian Gothic Revival, its tall steeple dominating much of the city. Duntryleague Guest House (1876), Orange Court House, and the Orange Town Hall.
The row of ironwork-decorated houses built in 1876, known as Bowen Terrace are a perfect and rare example of their period.
Designed by G.A. Mansfield, opened in 1880, with Sir Henry Parkes, the NSW Premier and Founder of Australian Federation laying the foundation stone is the Orange Public School. It has a unique appearance and looks more like a church than a school with its high pointed large-paned sash windows, steeply pitched roof and spire.
