Orange is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales. It is a regional electorate that covers four local government areas in their entirety: the City of Orange, Cabonne Shire, Parkes Shire and Forbes Shire. The seat has been held by Philip Donato, of the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party, since a by-election in November 2016.



Orange was created in 1859. Orange and Hartley were absorbed into Bathurst, which elected three members under proportional representation, between 1920 and 1927. In 1927 Bathurst, Hartley and Orange were recreated as single-member electorates.

While the city of Orange itself occasionally favours Labor, the rest of the area tilts strongly toward the National Party, a major reason Labor hasn't held the seat since 1947, although it came close to winning at the 1996 by-election.
