A photo that brings a feeling of peace as you watch these calm animals in the country town of Emu Swamp.
Situated on Blackman's Swamp Creek, Orange was proclaimed a village in 1846. The area had previously been known as Blackman's Swamp Creek. The city has grown from its rich mining past when in 1851 William Tom and John Lister found the first payable gold in Australia at Ophir. In the same year gold was found at Lucknow and these rich mines were worked for many years afterwards which brought great wealth to the area.
Orange is also well known as the birthplace of Australian famous poet Banjo Paterson.
