Mudgee - Cities, Towns and Localities
Mudgee is famous as a wine-producing region with approximately 40 wine cellar doors all within a short drive of this historic town that offers much more each time you visit.

At only 3.5 hours drive north west of Sydney and nestled within the beautiful Cudgegong River Valley this town of 8,500 people are justifiably proud of their regional produce. Mouth watering wines, fine merino sheep's wool, dairy products, fruit, Lucerne hay, honey and many other high quality produce come from this fertile region.

It also sits within a region of goldrush and rural booms, and where colonial history still shapes the towns in the form of heritage buildings, museums, galleries, memorial tributes to the poet and writer Henry Lawson, gold fossicking, and watching sheep shearing.

A wine producing region for over 100 years, June is an opportune time to visit Mudgee for the Wine and Food Fair or in September for the Huntington Festival which fuses local food and wine with classical music.

Trellised Grape Vines, Mudgee - courtesy Tourism New South WalesThe town was originally home to the Wiradjuri aboriginal tribe. Mudgee comes from their language and means "Nest in the Hills". Settlers and aboriginals came into conflict once white settlement began in the region around the 1820's.

The town was gazetted in 1838 and within a few years had developed into a sizeable village. It wasn't until gold was discovered in 1851 by Edward Hargraves that the town boomed. Thousands of people flocked to the area to try their luck in towns such as Gulgong, Hill End and Windeyer. Mudgee became the main supply town for the miners.
