Mildura - Orange World




Orange World is a working 50-acre citrus property situated just 8 minutes from Mildura. We offer educational and informative citrus tours around the picturesque property of avocado trees, numerous citrus varieties and tree grafting areas. During picking season visitors can see pickers at work. In orange blossom time the trees are laden with blossom and the beautiful sweet scent drifts throughout the orchard. Travel on the 70-seat tractor train is undercover, and passengers receive a fruit tasting informative commentary on a wealth of citrus information with a juicy sense of humour.

The tour also includes a nursery talk where guides explain how to successfully grow citrus trees at home, how to select good quality fruit and answer the many questions that you may have on citrus. The tour concludes with a mini processing display and a demonstration of a very unique orange peeler. Visitors have the opportunity to take in the magnificent views over the expanse of citrus and grapevines of the district from the Orange World Look Out Tower.

Location - We are situated 8 minutes away from Mildura over the Chaffey Bridge, New South Wales side of the Murray River on the Silver City Highway, Buronga. Follow the signs over the bridge and we are on the way to Wentworth NSW.

Review:


Mario the guide conducts a very interactive and humourous tour with some citrus facts thrown in. The tour revolves around quizzes, jokes and dissemination of information about citrus fruit growing. Periodically on the tour, Mario will ask a few Orange World Trivial Pursuit type questions for a chance to claim a prize such as a special orange peeler. Listen up - here are a few hints to some questions Mario might ask.
Q- How old is Mario? A- About 60 years old
Q- How many trees are there at Orange World? A- 10,000 trees
Q- What are the best and juiciest oranges? A- Washington Navels
Q- How old are the grafted trees? A- About eight years old
Q - How many pickers are needed to pick the fruit A- About four people (although they recently retired and Mario is looking for new pickers).

At the end of the tour there is a row of different types of Citrus trees including the very unusual Buddha Hands tree and the Shaddock (largest orange in the world). You can also buy orange blossom honey from bees used to pollinate the trees in the orchard. The freshly squeezed orange juice was delicious.
