Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia

Orange named Australia's Most Romantic City

On Valentine's Day, we are proud to announce that the beautiful city of Orange has been crowned Australia's Most Romantic City!

Preply, an online language learning marketplace, conducted a recent study to identify the top 10 most romantic cities in Australia, with Orange emerging as the undeniable winner. Preply assessed seven categories: hotels, romantic eateries, couple activities, and volumes of romance-related searches such as flower gifting, online dating, and proposals. Scores out of five were allocated to each city or town based on aggregated results.

Experience romance for yourself with one of these amazing experiences from our Ultimate Wineries in Orange:
