Mudgee is a lovely country town. the access to the wineries is very easy, the proximity to the blue mountains means the scenery is stunning, the wildlife is abundant and the options for food and drink are excellent.
Ideal place for a short stay - either as a stop over, or just a weekend get away. Main activities are wine tasting - not as impressive as those in the Hunter Valley - but still enjoyable.
There are also a few nice pubs in town for the solo traveler, or groups and couples looking to enjoy a decent pub lunch/dinner. As an alternative, you could choose to tour a few of the surrounding historic towns, but expect a little bit of a drive (30 mins up to 2 hours). Own transport is mandatory.
