Statement of Significance

Waratah Oval2Waratah Oval is located at the Northern suburban fringe, in an area that is currently under the process of being subdivided for residential development. The community consultation process identified the “wetland” area near Waratah Sports Complex as significant for the way in which the ecological heritage has been retained in the development. The area continues the practice of dedicating land surrounding watercourses or wetland as reserves established in the early days of Orange’s history with the reserves surrounding Blackman’s Swamp Creek.

Waratah’s Sports Club includes a new and extensive sporting complex with rugby union, soccer, athletics and cricket facilities.
