Nestled amongst rolling hills northwest of Sydney, laidback and lovely Mudgee offers visitors a taste of country living at its very best. This historic town may have prospered as a centre for regional goldfields, but the only gold to be found in Mudgee itself is of the liquid variety, with 40 cellar doors popping up since the first grapes were planted back in 1858. Although the region is primarily a producer of robust reds, you’ll also find excellent chardonnay and an assortment of other light and lively whites.
The town centre, located on the idyllic banks of the Cudgegong River, is a treasure trove of heritage streetscapes, cosmopolitan boutiques, galleries and epicurean delights, and its wide tree-lined streets lead to picture-perfect playgrounds and parks. Further explorations will lead you to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Wollemi National Park, home of the ancient Wollemi pine, waterfall-strewn river valleys, hanging swamps, basalt-capped mountains and the serene sandstone canyons and tiered rock formations of Dunns Swamp, or Ganguddy as it is known to local Indigenous people.
Whether you’re searching for the romance of the past, a family farm adventure, a retreat to a quiet pocket of wilderness, or an epicurean escape, we’ve found the perfect Mudgee accommodation for you to rest your head.
