Located 40km from Orange is Manildra. With a population of around 800, Manildra is recognised as an important rural centre with the largest flour mill in the country.
Owned by the Manildra Group the mill is an important source of employment and economic stability in the town and a point of community pride.
Manildra gained fame recently after artist Guido van Helten painted seven carriages, all featuring locals. Three times a week the painted carriages, along with others travel from Manildra the South Coast.
