The township of Mudgee was first reached by William Lawson in 1821 and first settled in 1822 by George and Henry Cox.
When you fly towards Mudgee it is a sight to behold with rolling hills, gorgeous mountains oozing with countryside peace and a warm fuzzy feeling.
Mudgee is also blessed with historic buildings so slip on your walking shoes, pick up a Historic Walking map and set out for an interesting walk around Mudgee’s historic buildings, described by the National Trust as ‘one of the finest groups of townscape in a country area’.
Mudgee has many activities and attractions for everyone, and offers a wealth of shopping experiences. Boutique shops, cafes and restaurants, markets and a vibrant arts community give the town an edge.
Indulge your senses in the region and visit Gulgong, Rylstone & Kandos – take a step back in time wandering through our museums, go bushwalking, birdwatching, or gold panning. Take some time out to visit our natural wonderland in our National Parks, visit markets, galleries, antique shops, the miniature railway, a winery or olive producer. Go on a farm walk, open your taste buds at the cheese factories, stop off at the brewery, or star gaze at the observatory. For a holiday or weekend away, look no further than the Mudgee region. There is something for everyone, but whatever you choose, it is, ‘in every sense perfection’.
