With a continuous history of winemaking since the 1850s, Mudgee is the third largest grape-producing region in NSW. Taste fine wines in any of the region's cellar doors.

Mudgee has a rich pastoral history that's reflected in its heritage streetscapes which are wide and tree-lined, perfect for meandering walks. Gaze up at the night skies at the Mudgee Observatory, or book a daytime session to view the sun.
