What to do and see in Mudgee


What brings you to Mudgee?
Just 268km north-west of Sydney is the charming country town of Mudgee, meaning 'nest in the hills', and complemented by smaller regional towns including; Gulgong, Rylestone, Hill End and Kandos.  Whether it's award-winning food and wine, sensational restaurants, 40 family-owned cellar doors, or gorgeous rolling hills and picturesque country landscapes, the region is fast becoming the 'go-to' destination to 'escape the everyday'.  Bandalong sits among working farms, cellar doors and is the perfection location for a romantic getaway, relaxing family time, group get-togethers, downtime by the wood-burning fire or on your cottage veranda watching whatever wildlife passes through.

Mudgee Observatory

Located away from the town lights and 8 minutes from your cottage, this is where night skies can be viewed as they were meant to be viewed. Gaze at a jewel box of constellations, view startling nebulas or enthral at a star in its death-throes.
