Not many towns with a population of just over 500 can boast the biggest anything, but Manildra is the exception. This small village on the banks of the Mandagery Creek halfway between Orange and Forbes is home to the Manildra Flour Mill, the largest in the southern hemisphere. The presence of the mill, which operates 24 hours a day, makes Manildra a natural to host the National Bread Show. The little town can also lay claim to the oldest running cinema in Australia. Allan Tom launched the Amusu (pronounced, of course, amuse-you) Theatre as a travelling picture show in 1923 before anchoring his projector in its current site in the centre of Manildra in 1936. The great outdoors, too, beckon in the form of a couple of very pleasant, barbecue-appointed parks and the banks of the eminently fishable Boree and Mandagery creeks. The neighbouring town of Molong is distinctive for the grave of Yaranigh, explorer Thomas Mitchell's long-time guide. Yaranigh was buried on the outskirts of town in 1850 in full accordance with the rites of his Aboriginal tribe. Four trees mark the four corners of the burial plot and the epitaph on the headstone pays to his courage and fidelity.
