Towns + Villages - Mudgee Region

We’re closer than you think! Just jump in the car, hop on a train or board a plane. You’ll be here in a jiffy.

Located just 268km north-west of Sydney, no matter how you choose to get yourself to Mudgee Region, it’s all part of the adventure. You’ll feel your senses tingle as the city-scape blurs out of view and the vast country landscape opens in front of you.


The road trip

From Sydney: around 3.5 hours along the Great Western Highway through the Blue Mountains, or follow the Bells Line of Road to Lithgow. The turn off for Mudgee is just past Lithgow (the last traffic lights you’ll see for a while). On your journey, be sure to plan enough time for a detour to explore the gorgeous heritage towns of Gulgong, Rylstone and Kandos.

From Newcastle: take the famous Bylong Valley Way for a 4 hour drive via Denman and Sandy Hollow. Turn at Sandy Hollow and explore the villages of Rylstone or Kandos before arriving in Mudgee. Alternatively, take the road via Merriwa and Ulan to Gulgong or Mudgee.

From Wollongong: around 4 hours along the Great Western Highway and Castlereagh Highway. Goodbye surf and sea, hello rolling hills and trees.

From Canberra: 5 hours via Yass, Cowra and Wellington or via Cowra and Bathurst or via The Tablelands Way through Goulburn, Crookwell and Oberon to Bathurst, then Wattle Flat, Sofala and Mudgee. The road is fully sealed, easy peasy.
