Orange Regional Gallery collects Australian paintings, drawings and prints since 1916. The intention is to build on the core strength of the Mary Turner collection - collecting only works that are perceived as fine works by artists likely to achieve importance in Australian art history.
Mayfields Icely Road wines are available at the cellar door, a charming 100 year old school house with a magnificent outlook over one of the most picturesque vineyards in the Orange region.
Mayfield Vineyard is one of the highest and coolest vineyards in Australia. The 100 hectare estate surrounds the historic homestead on the Icely Road leading to where gold was first discovered in Australia in 1851.
The original school house on the estate now serves as a cellar door.
