The Geographical Indication "Orange" is located within the zone "Central Ranges", within the State of New South Wales, Australia. The region has been defined as that contiguous area that is above 600 metre elevation within the City of Orange and the Shires of Cabonne and Blayney.

The starting point is where the Cabonne and Wellington Shire boundaries intersect with the 600 metre contour and is found on map Euchareena (Sheet 8732-II & III) at map grid reference FD871506. The Cabonne Shire boundary is followed in a east south easterly direction to map grid reference FD887503 where it turns generally south to edge of map at grid reference FD885469 and crosses into map Hill End (Sheet 8731-I & IV) at map grid reference FD884469 and continues along the Shire boundary to map grid reference FD879422 where the Shire boundary meets Kerrs Creek and follows Kerrs Creek in a generally easterly direction until at map grid reference FD990393 it leaves Kerrs Creek and turns north following the Shire boundary to Curragurra Creek and following Curragurra Creek until at map grid reference GD007463 it leaves the Curragurra Creek and continues to follows the Shire boundary in a generally east and south direction until it meets Boshes Creek at map grid reference GD068437 and then follows a generally north easterly direction along Boshes Creek (the Shire boundary) until it meets the Macquarie River at map grid reference GD085485. Then following the Macquarie River (Cabonne/Evans Shire boundary) in a generally easterly then southerly direction until map grid reference GD168395 where it leaves the river and follows a generally southerly direction along the Shire boundary to edge of map at grid reference GD158186, crossing into map Freemantle (Sheet 8731-2-N) at grid reference GD158186: then continue along the Shire boundary in a generally southerly direction right through this map to edge of map at grid reference GD152047, crossing into map Vittoria (Sheet 8731-2-S) at grid reference GD152047; then continue along the Shire boundary in a southerly direction until map grid reference GC136988, where it turns and follows the Shire boundary in an easterly direction until map grid reference GC176982, where it turns and follows the Shire boundary in a generally southerly direction to edge of map at grid reference GC188908, crossing into map Blayney (Sheet 8730-I & IV) at grid reference GC188908; then continue generally south along the Blayney/Evans Shire boundary to Sugar Loaf Hill at map grid reference GC188870; then in a generally easterly direction along the Shire boundary to map grid reference GC248857; then in a generally southerly direction along the Shire boundary until map grid reference GC218691 near Grove Rocks, where it turns and follows a generally west south westerly direction along the Blayney/Evans and Blayney/Waugoola Shire boundaries to edge of map at grid reference FC975635, where it crosses into map Abercrombie (Sheet 8730 II & III) at map grid reference FC975635; then continue in a generally south westerly direction along the Shire boundary until map grid reference FC910566 where it turns and follows a generally north westerly direction along the Shire boundary until edge of map at grid reference FC853598 it crosses into map Cowra (Sheet 8630-II & III) at grid reference FC852599; then continue in a generally north westerly direction along the Shire boundary until edge of map at grid reference FC829638; it crosses into map Canowindra (Sheet 8630 I & IV) at grid reference FC829638 and continues to follow the Shire boundary in a generally northerly direction until at map grid reference FC833650 it intersects Limestone Creek and then follows Limestone Creek (the Shire boundary) in a generally north westerly direction until at grid reference FC815693 it meets the 600 metre contour, then continues generally north along the 600 metre contour to the edge of map at FC855772. To map Blayney (Sheet 8730 I & IV) at grid reference FC855772 and continues to follow the 600 metre contour in a generally east and then west direction to edge of map at FC855775. To map Canowindra (Sheet 8630 I & IV) at grid reference FC855776 and continues to follow the 600 metre contour in a generally northerly direction to edge of map at FC856835. To map Blayney (Sheet 8730 I & IV) at grid reference FC856837 and follow 600 metre contour in a generally easterly and then westerly direction to edge of map at grid reference FC857843. To map Canowindra (Sheet 8630 I & IV) at map grid reference FC857843 and then continue along the 600 metre contour line in a generally north westerly direction to edge of map at grid reference FC759917. To map Cuda (Sheet 8631 II & III) at map grid reference FC758917 and follow the 600 metre contour in a generally easterly direction criss-crossing between maps Cuda (Sheet 8631 II & III) and Canowindra (Sheet 8630 I & IV) to map grid reference FC767916 on map Cudal (Sheet 8631 II & III). Then continue generally north on the 600 metre contour to where it crosses the Panuara Rivulet at grid reference GR769951 and then south to the edge of map at map grid reference FC747917. To map Canowindra (Sheet 8630 I & IV) at grid reference FC747917 and continues on the 600 metre contour line south then north around Black Rock Range to edge of map at grid reference FC735917.
