We love all the wine regions close to Sydney, but Mudgee NSW has to be the most beautiful of all. The scenery is stunning and the drives between wineries are like an adventure alone. As well as the fabulous vineyards, there are a whole raft of other things to do, from exploring old Wild West gold mining towns, to Aboriginal rock art sites, wild swimming spots and walking trails with beautiful viewpoints.
If you’re looking for a weekend away where you can indulge in incredible food and wine, but also get out and do a few activities, Mudgee is the place for you!
Top 5 things to do in Mudgee below!
Mudgee Wine Tours
Of course, the top thing to do in Mudgee has to be the wine tasting and with dozens of vineyards to choose from, you are spoilt for choice. A few of our top favourite Mudgee wineries would be 10’s Estate, Logan Wines & Mudgee Brewing Co.
Pick up local produce from Mudgee Farmers markets
Mudgee is well known for its produce and if you’re lucky enough to be visiting when the Mudgee Farmers Market is on (3rd Saturday of every month) then it’s not to be missed. Mudgee’s best produce is all in one place, which just so happens to be the beautiful Robertson Park, a lovely location to sample your way round the various stalls.
Cool off at The Drip Gorge
Depending on the Mudgee weather you can head over to cool off at the drip gorge. It’s so peaceful that it’s easy to think you’re out in the wilds when in fact the walk is just 1.4km each way and almost entirely flat!
Aboriginal art at Hand On Rock
Hands on Rock is a series of over 100 hand stencils from women and children of the Wiradjuri nation printed on the underside of a large cave. Whilst many of the ochre paintings have sadly faded away, some have survived in remarkably good condition.
If you want to get up close to look at the constellations and planets, you’ll need to head to the Mudgee Observatory which has telescopes and binoculars, and John will guide you through the whole experience.
