The 2019 Australasian College of Dermatologists Rural Dermatology Meeting will be held at the Orange Agricultural Institute in New South Wales from 6 to 8 September.
Orange is famous for its cold climate wines and close to the famous Parkes telescope (The Dish). Orange has much to offer for both you and your family. Where else can you search for truffles and fossick for gold?
