In the hills of the Macquarie Ranges, 32 kilometres north of Orange on the Mitchell Highway, Molong is a thriving rural town with plenty of old world charm. The main street is National Trust-classified and there are many fine heritage buildings from the 1800s scattered around the town.
In the heart of the rich agricultural shire of Cabonne, Molong is at the centre of a rich farming district producing wheat, sheep, wool and cattle, fruit and wine. You can stock up on local produce and wine fresh from the farmgate or cellar door. Watch out for paddock art sculpture, Animals on bikes, on the back road from Molong to Cumnock.
Population as at 2011 is 2516
