Are there any good day trips from Sydney to Mudgee and back that my wife and I could use to see the scenery and check out the wine?
There are a few companies, but Mudgee is about 4-5 hours drive out of Sydney.
Or you could stay in Katoomba and get a tour there:
Looks like there are some small private operators based in Sydney:
Excellent. Thank you.
I saw Mudgee around 1995, when I was last in Australia (my only visit by the way). It seemed nice there and they had good wineries. I remember the fine wines, the kangaroos running (hopping) in the fields and cooking a steak at the pub place where you do that. There was a storm that night ... a summer storm with rain and it was one of the most memorable times I ever had. An awesome little place.
if u r looking to go that far west also consider orange. it's a newer wine area of some note. nice town too. lots of good eating places.
dont know whether it would be serviced by day tours from sydney however.
am quite surprised there are any to mudgee from sydney also.
really it is a two day trip.
>>am quite surprised there are any to mudgee from sydney also.<<
are there any? the one listed above all either start from mudgee or lithgow, or take a weekend.
generally the prospect of 8 hours on a bus in a day is not something I elect to do for fun.
As Lien mentioned, Orange is another emerging wine district in the West, with some excellent resaturants. Nearby Millthorpe would make a lovely stop for a couple of nights:
It's about 3 1/2 hour drive from Sydney, If in the area, be sure to sample the excellent Bloodwood Riesling. Mudgee is another 2 hours away.
