What can first-time visitors expect from a trip to Mudgee? They are often pleasantly surprised by the natural beauty and authentic charm of the region. Mudgee and the surrounding villages take pride in what they offer, from the quaint and pretty streetscapes to the abundance of fresh produce, locally made products and top-notch wines – not to mention the genuine friendliness of the locals.
The wineries and cellar doors in the region are all surrounding the township of Mudgee itself, and within a 30km radius you can hit no less than 35, all with diverse and high-quality offerings.
What is the best time of year to plan a visit?
Mudgee is a great year-round venue with each season providing different and exciting elements. However, it’s during the Spring Wine and Food Festival that the region really shines. Throughout this monthlong festival beginning in September, the whole of Mudgee joins in a celebration of all things epicurean. Visitors can explore the area, and sample its wines and produce with events at cellar doors, restaurants and cafes, and even among the vines. Long lunches, delectable dinners, perfect pairings, cocktail classes and sunset soirees are some of the ways the Mudgee festival can be enjoyed.
