Historic Pub Walking Tour to Launch New Heritage Trail Brochure

Historic Pub Sign

The Public House or Pub for short, has played a significant part in the development of Australia. Pubs thrived in the Central West due to the discovery of payable gold at Ophir in 1851. Be among the first to join in a walking tour of Orange’s historic pubs on Sunday 4th August at 10.30am. This event will launch Orange City Council’s latest heritage walking trail brochure as part of Frost Fest celebrations. Discover some of the yarns of yesteryear and you’ll never know who you will meet along the way.

Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for children and includes lunch at Kelly’s Rugby Hotel.  Bookings and payment essential at Orange City Library. Ph 6393 8132
