Nothing beats the Australian countryside in the springtime. Winter sheds its blistery grip and towns are buzzing with locals and tourists alike. NSW, in particular, is much more than beach getaways and seaside towns, when travelling inland you are greeted with country towns, full of regional produce, historical sights and welcoming locals.

If you are looking to buy a business in NSW, consider a scenic country town to settle down in. Not only will you find they are more affordable but the feeling of community can not be beaten. 

We take a look at 5 major country towns in NSW where you can buy a business today and the benefits of these areas. 



1. Orange NSW

Orange, the birthplace of Banjo Patterson, is located 254km west of Sydney and is well known for its delicious local produce, in particular apples, pears, and stone fruits - think juicy peaches and cherries. This lends itself to some wonderful restaurants, including the ever-popular hatted restaurant, Lolli Redini, and in recent years, popular vineyards and wineries. October also sees the Orange Wine Month come to fruition, with the Orange Wine Show and Festival bringing many locals and tourists into the area, and is proudly supported by the NSW Department of Primary Industries.

Orange has a population of 39,722 in 2022, making it a key regional centre and the 13th largest city in NSW. There are plenty of the facilities including public transport, schools, local businesses, restaurants, cafes and the local Cadia Mine. Cadia Mine is the second largest open-cut mine in Australia and is responsible for the employment of many locals.
