This exhibition explores the pivotal role of water in the history, development, industry and culture of the Orange district.
Water sustains land, life and the spirit. It is both abundant and a precious, finite resource. The careful use and management of water and water places is now preoccupying communities, councils and governments. Exploring the water history of the district helps us to recognise the vital place of water in every facet of life in the community, past and present.
