The town of Mudgee is famous as a wine-producing region that offers so much more. It sits within a region that's born of goldrush and rural booms, where colonial history still shapes the little towns we see today in the form of heritage buildings, museums, galleries, memorial tributes to brilliant poet and writer Henry Lawson, gold fossicking, and viewing sheep shearing.
As a wine producing region for over 100 years, an opportune time to visit Mudgee is in June when for the Wine and Food Fair or in September for the Huntington Festival which fuses local food and wine with classical music.
Don't go in June, the vines are all dormant, the weather is bloody freezing and there is nothing to do except drink, well you can do that at home and save money.Come the warmer weather the wineries cater for the upper end of the market, food etc is very expensive, i know i lived there for 22 years and after a couple of trips to the wineries couldn't be bothered anymore, and i love to drink.
