The township of Mudgee was first reached by white man in 1821 by William Lawson and first settled in 1822 by George and Henry Cox. Early Australian architectural facades and historic buildings line the wide streets of Mudgee, many dating to the 1850’s.
Described by the National Trust as ‘one of the finest groups of townscape in a country area’, and referring to the buildings from St. Johns Church down to the old police station, Mudgee is still blessed with historical buildings, wide streets and an ambience that is the envy of many of our urban visitors.
Today, boutique shopping, cafes and restaurants, markets and a vibrant arts community give the town an edge, and ambience which the locals revere and the visitors covet.
Indulge your senses in the region – enjoy wine, visit museums, go bushwalking or bird watching, go gold panning, visit markets, galleries, antique shops, a miniature railway, a boutique brewery or star gaze at the observatory.
