The lesser-known alternative to the Hunter Valley, Mudgee has fantastic wine, food, heritage buildings and charming streets.
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:
Prefer beer? Drop into the Mudgee Brewery for delicious local beers and live music.
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.
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.
