Make your downtime as memorable as your gastronomic experiences in the Mudgee wine region, a 3.5-hour drive or 50 minutes flight from Sydney, with a unique stay. Nest in repurposed heritage buildings in the pretty namesake town or pamper yourself with a luxury escape or a winery stay in the beautiful surrounding countryside. 

Lap up subtle luxury 

After a glorious day of wine tastings, retreat to the urban oasis of Perry Street Hotel, in the heart of town, to recharge before a night of more gourmet reveries. Revitalise with a soak in a bathtub in your suite in the beautifully renovated 19th-century Mechanics Institute Hall building and feel yourself unwind amid the serene and textured interiors. 

After a great night’s sleep, take the five-minute drive to Gilbert Family Wines, where you’ll be inspired by the passion of fifth-generation winemaker Simon Gilbert and his son Will to create beautifully crafted modern wines with a nod to their heritage. Book ahead to indulge in a sublime wine flight in the elegant tasting room or settle in for a leisurely afternoon in the backyard with some tasty bites. 

Travel back in time 

Soak up the atmosphere in the centre of town at the 160-year-old Cobb & Co Court Boutique Hotel, a surviving treasure from Mudgee’s early settlement. Picture the arrival of a stagecoach as you glance down from your balcony at the original cobbled courtyard, before admiring the vintage fixtures adorning your stylish room. Cobb & Co is mere steps away from some of the town’s excellent dining options, from breakfast pastries at Market Street Café to dinner at Eltons wine bar.  

Rest up in a worker’s cottage 

Imagine town life in the late 1850s at The Tannery, a two-bedroom bungalow in the heart of Mudgee. The early Victorian home retains much of the natural charm of its former life as cosy accommodation for local workers. Stoke the open fire, take a seat on the back verandah with a cup of tea and admire the garden, or head straight to Alby & Esthers to mingle with locals over breakfast. Tucked down a laneway in a welcoming courtyard, this popular café is renowned for its tasty jaffles — ham, egg, Swiss cheese and house-made tomato relish make a flavoursome mix.  

Hide away in a vineyard 

Rekindle your romance just steps away from a cellar door in the quaint two-bedroom Winemaker’s Cottage, which was the Burnbrae winemaking family’s home in the 1960s and has been carefully restored in country minimalist style. Revel in the peaceful surroundings with your loved one before strolling over to the Burnbrae Wines cellar door to maintain the magical spell with the winery’s storybook-inspired labels and glorious blends.

Take over a big country home 

Reconnect with family and friends in the comfort of a renovated 1916 stone house at Leaning Oak, on the fringes of Mudgee. The restoration has stayed true to the soul of the building while adding modern luxury across four bedrooms and study sleeping up to 12 guests. Kids will love the outdoors saltwater pool and pizza oven, while creative cooks will adore the French industrial kitchen of this authentic country home — time your visit with the Mudgee Farmers’ Market to stock up on fresh produce. 

Combine luxury with a farm stay 

Light the wood fire and snuggle up in a welcoming cottage with stylish interiors and local art on the walls, or step out of your oversized homestead to meet fellow travellers around communal fire pits at Peppertree Hill, a collection of self-contained luxury accommodation options just on the outskirts of Mudgee.  

You won’t have to travel far to feast on seasonal local dishes — at nearby Pipeclay Pumphouse, on the estate of family-run Robert Stein Vineyard & Farm, treat yourself to a delicious lunch or dinner from a menu that changes weekly depending on the selection of fresh produce available, with local meats, herbs and vegetables front and centre. 

Indulge in an ultra-glamping experience 

Lose yourself in the views of rolling hills deep in Mudgee wine country at Sierra Escape, a breathtaking property on 110 hectares with five-star tents to help you escape from the world for a while. Soak up the serenity in your glamping hut’s freestanding bathtub — order ahead to ensure a local meats and cheese package from Dad’s Deli is waiting for you in your tent when you arrive. 

Savour a five-star country estate 

Celebrate your big family event — a wedding, perhaps? — at Evanslea, located beside the Cudgegong River. Surround yourself with pretty, landscaped gardens as you gather your favourite relatives in a four-bedroom house with a shared swimming pool and fire pit. Or hide away from the world in one of Evanslea’s romantic cottages, after picking up some organic and biodynamic wine and delicious takeaway platters from the nearby Lowe Family Wine Co. 

Take your time heading home 

On your way back to Sydney, stop in at the heritage village of Rylstone, a 45-minute drive east of Mudgee, to feast on dumplings and sip Chinese tea at 29 Nine 99 yum cha restaurant, or taste French-style wines at De Beaurepaire Wines while soaking up sweeping vineyard views. Linger longer at The Little Lady at Naked Lady Wines, an minimalist tiny cabin for two on a boutique vineyard, or gather a group of friends for a memory-making reunion at the eco-friendly Wollemi Retreat, an architecturally designed haven that sleeps up to 10 in luxury.
