Mudgee Town

The Mudgee township is located on the banks of the Cudgegong River. With elegant tree-lined streets and beautiful heritage buildings, the town centre reflects the area’s strong pastoral history and colonial gold rush heritage.

The flat streets and wide footpaths make it a lovely place to spend the day walking or cycling through the boutiques, gift shops and homewares stores before stopping for a Devonshire tea or leisurely lunch.

Gulgong Town

A short drive from Mudgee is the colonial gold mining town of Gulgong. With 130 heritage-listed buildings and Australia’s oldest Opera House, it’s certainly worth the 30-minute drive where you’ll pass beautiful pastoral country properties.
