Things to Do in Mudgee When You Only Have 48 Hours

I write this coming from the perspective of food and wine, so little time! So what are the things to do in Mudgee when you’re pressed for time? Read on!


Arrival – 5pm Friday afternoon.  Drop your bags at your Mudgee accommodation, then head into Roth’s Wine Bar for a huge selection of local wines with great food to match.  Catch some live local music and settle in to an enjoyable evening in Mudgee’s oldest wine bar.

Saturday – after your much needed sleep in, head to the Dancing Goat Café for outstanding coffee (Campos) and delicious home made food, all cooked from scratch!  From there, take a stroll down the main and surrounding streets to indulge in some boutique shopping.

Head home to drop the cars off then be whisked away to an amazing wine tour by Mudgee VIP Wine Tours.  There truly are so many great wineries to visit as well as places for lunch.  Burnbrae, Lowe’s, Di Lusso, Robert Oatley, Stein’s, Gilbert’s…the list could go on forever.

Saturday night dinner would depend on how your day went.  If you’re a bit tired and full from lunch, then stay in and enjoy some lovely cheese, wine and produce you’ve acquired from your wine tour.  Ready for more delicious food and wine, then make sure you’ve booked a table at Pipeclay Pumphouse.  Think paddock to plate with superb matched wines!


Sunday – Alby + Esther’s for breakfast with great coffee and home cooking in a very gorgeous setting.  Revisit the boutique shops to buy those things you wanted but hesitated to buy.  Pack your bags and head off back to Sydney via Rylstone.  Call in for an early lunch at arguably the best yum cha place ever (totally biased but so will you be once you’ve tried it!)  at 29 Nine 99 Yum Cha and Tea House.  This will be the icing on the cake for what should be a very memorable weekend.


These are just some of the things to do in Mudgee. There are so many other options and so many ways to get here. See you soon for your stay in Mudgee!
