Mudgee, NSW is a great country town

The small town is a hidden gem.

The lesser-known alternative to the Hunter Valley, Mudgee has fantastic wine, food, heritage buildings and charming streets.

Hit the wineries

Although less well-known, many of the wineries in Mudgee are award-winning. You can drive between them, or even bike — most of the wineries are close to each other, and the terrain is fairly flat, making a bicycle the perfect mode of transport.

There are more than 35 cellar doors in Mudgee, so you’re spoiled for choice.

Some highlights are:

  • Blue Wren Wines for a gourmet lunch in their beautiful garden.
  • Huntington Estate Wines for their excellent wines and annual music festival held in the barrel room.
  • Lowe Wines for organic wines and fabulous views of the mountains.
  • Robert Oatley Vineyards for their ‘A Day on the Green concert’. Fun fact: owner Robert Oatley’s super yacht Wild Oats has won the Sydney to Hobart race four times.
  • Di Lusso Winery has delicious wood-fired pizza and you can play bocce.

Prefer beer? Drop into the Mudgee Brewery for delicious local beers and live music.

Enjoy some tunes

For a small town, Mudgee has a lot going on when it comes to live music. Robert Oatley Vineyards hosts a yearly ‘A Day on the Green’ concert. Huntington Estate puts on a multi-day music festival each year.

Explore Wollemi National Park

Wollemi National Park borders Mudgee, meaning there are plenty of day hikes through the 500,000-hectare wilderness.

You can see tiered rock formations, waterways, native bird species, Aboriginal rock art sites and sandstone canyons.
