A major draw card of the Shire is Millthorpe Village.
Not only a gateway to the other fantastic villages of Blayney but also a fantastic example of a unique and time warped heritage village.
The area includes Blayney Shire and Villages, Cowra, Orange City, Cabonne Country and the Bathurst Region.
There are too many attractions to list individually, however from food and wine, wilderness and natural beauty to Australian History and gold mining Millthorpe is a great location for more than a stopover.
EAT & DRINK
Fine food and wine complement an escape to Millthorpe. Enjoy dining at award winning restaurants, delightful cafes with outdoor courtyards, great coffee and local produce, as well as a variety of pubs and clubs each with their own restaurant. Drop into one of the welcoming cellar doors for locally produced award winning cool-climate wines or join a wine tour.
