Country Food Trails
Country Food Trails offers thoughtfully planned, intimate food and wine tours for down-to-earth foodies.
When the COVID struck, my successful international tour business, Red Door Tours, came to a sudden standstill. My heart broke! The thought of putting my beloved textile safaris of India and Morocco on hold was devastating.
It was time to pivot and seize the opportunity to start a new business that would give me the privilege of sharing my beautiful hometown Orange with food and wine-loving visitors. And here we are, with Country Food Trails.
We offer a range of unforgettable tours featuring unique experiences, hidden gems and delicious treats.
I love Orange, to me it is the heart of NSW. I am passionate about showcasing the incredible food, wine, history, and natural beauty that my hometown has to offer. We’ll share local knowledge that you won’t find on Google.
Our guides will give you their full, personal attention, answer as many (or as few) questions as you have and will ensure your tour is special for YOU.
Join me or one of our passionate guides on a tour you are sure to remember.

Like catching up with an old friend
Nicole made our Wine and History tour of Orange interesting. We had been on tours before that had made us feel not so special but with Nicole we had felt like we were catching up with an old friend. We highly recommend anyone joining a tour with Country Food Trails.
An enjoyable afternoon
Nicole was very friendly and managed at the last minute to organise a splendid guide, Sharon, for our private tour. Sharon’s passion and knowledge of local history kept us informed and entertained. A great way to learn more about the town and its lively history. Thanks for an enjoyable afternoon.
