Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival

Orange Visitor & Travel Guide

THE BANJO PATERSON AUSTRALIAN POETRY FESTIVAL


Banjo Paterson’s Waltzing Matilda is known worldwide; many Australians can recite a string of his poems; and his work has been converted to song and theatre. What better way to celebrate this great Australian’s life and work than through a Festival in the district in which he was born.


Banjo Paterson Cottage "Emmaville"
Orange Botanic Gardens

A celebration of Banjo Paterson birthplace.

This cute little cottage could have been where Banjo Paterson was born. It is not known for sure if it is, however, the building does come from the farm where he was born and even it is not his birthplace it would have been in a cottage just like Emmaville.

Emmaville Cottage has estimated to date from the 1850s and the four-room design is typical of early Australian rural architecture. It was located on the property of 'Narrambla', a noteworthy landholding of the Orange district in the l830s and is significant to Australian literature and history as the birthplace of Andrew 'Banjo' Paterson who was born in February 1864.

ln 2013 an extensive restoration process was undertaken by the Orange Rotary Club, the Community and Orange City Council. The cottage, missing its lean-to and outbuildings was relocated to the Orange Botanic Gardens precinct as part of the restoration.



Emmaville Cottage

Yellow Box Way, Orange Botanic Gardens Precinct
Open Weekdays 9am - 3.30pm and weekends weather permitting
Free Entry
Emmaville Cottage has approximately 4 steps with access on a gravel surface.

Cook Park Orange

Orange Visitor & Travel Guide

Cook Park Orange
Open every day of the year from 7.30am until dusk. Entry free. Bus groups welcome.

Cook Park Cannon

This 24 Pound Smooth Bore Cannon, (serial no. 69919) was cast c1806 at the Carron Iron Foundry in Scotland. It is a Blomefield Pattern Iron Gun and once formed part of the Fort Macquarie armament that was situated at the end of Bennelong Point, where the Sydney Opera House now stands.

Three sides of the fort faced the harbour with 24 pounders placed at each angle and mounted on a raised circular bastion, with a traversing carriage.

Cannons were standard artillery for their day and were used extensively in naval service and shore batteries and forts. It is estimated the range of the gun was approximately 1.3 kms (1500 yards) with a charge of 11 pounds of gunpowder. The weight of the gun is approximately 1 tonne and the shot weighed 24 pounds, hence the name.

This is one of the only four remaining cannons from Fort Macquarie - one is at Hyde Park Barracks and two are located at Victoria Barracks, Sydney. The cannon was given to the City of Orange in 1904 by Sydney City Council. It bears the initials G3R, indicating it was made in the reign of George III (1751-1820).

Fort Macquarie was built on the end of Bennelong Point, where the Sydney Opera House now stands. Completed by convict labour in 1821 using stone from the Domain, the fort had 15 guns and housed a small garrison. The powder magazine beneath the tower was capable of storing 350 barrels of gunpowder. The fort was demolished in 1901 to make way for the tramway sheds that occupied the site until the construction of the Utzon masterpiece.

Begonia Conservatory

C. W. Curran, a local storekeeper is claimed to have been the first person to introduce Begonias to Orange. Alf Blowes, who was Mayor at the time, showed interest in these plants and was instrumental in the building of the Conservatory in 1934. The central lantern of the building has 'Blowes Conservatory' in leadlight across its side.
The Conservatory is currently undergoing careful restoration and is not open.

The first begonias were donated by the City of Ballarat from the Ballarat Gardens and have been supplemented by the purchase of additional varieties. The collection is on display in the Blowes Conservatory from February until April each year when the plants are flowering.Cook Park's History
In 1873 the site of Cook Park was proclaimed as a park and in 1882 was officially named in honour of Captain James Cook.
From the 1870s onwards the first trees were planted resulting in today’s mature specimens. Andrew Patterson was the first curator employed in 1887.
Cook Park was laid out with straight paths and rows of trees, with much of the original design still in place.

Bastick Cottage in the Park

The Caretaker's Cottage was built in 1887 at a cost of £185.
It was named Bastick Cottage to honour two former Parks and
Gardens Supervisors who, between father and son, gave 90 years
of service to Orange. The cottage now houses the Park Guildry,
which operates as an arts and crafts shop.

The Fountain

The fountain was donated to the people of Orange by local storekeeper James Dalton in 1989 and it’s always held pride of place in Cook Park. The historic fountain includes a lot of decorative detail, including four cherubs and two overflow bowls.
