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.
