    Mudgee

    September 25, 2020 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    The massive storm front was still upon us when we reached Mudgee, a region known for its good wine... so we stopped at Blacklea winery and were ‘welcomed’ by an old grumpy owner who was tired of answering questions and was hovering over the bar making us very uncomfortable, so we left his establishment in a rush! Unfortunately we were not in better luck with the next two wineries we had planned to go as they were booked out.

    We headed to Mudgee town as a massive storm was looming upon us, so we went on a pub crawl at: Mudgee brewery (grear red ale, which we got a travel size Growler, known as squiller), Woolpack hotel (nice live music), paragon hotel (cheap pizzas, average), We ended up sleeping in the parking lot in the middle of the town)...

    Next morning, although 4°, the sun was out and we got better luck with the places we visited:
    1. Gulgong old mining town (average - too many cars to get a good pic of the old buildings)
    2. Bakery - Mudgee Bakery - average and commercialised. Looks like they extended the cafe and lost its charm)
    3. Cheesery - Mudgee Cheesery yum yum
    4. Honeyree - Honey Haven Mudgee - no need to stop there just drive past, but they did a nice coffee
    5. Winery - Thistle Hill - Bought 12 bottles of 2016 shiraz at Thistle Hill Winery (We still haven't figured out where to put all this wine in the van...)
    6. Walk to The Drip Gorge (also know as the great dripping wall) in the Goulburn River National Park

    All in all we weren’t prepared for a weekend in Mudgee - everything booked out - so lesson learned to be more prepared !!

    Mudgee wine region

    April 13, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Reluctantly left the swamp camp to head on a full days drive North to the Mudgee wine region and loop back towards the coast through beautiful and varied countryside. A quick stop in Mudgee to re-supply and have a wander around the old (for Australia!) buildings. On the way out of town we stopped at a vineyard which also had a great collection of vintage motorcycles.
    The wildlife was out in force and included two emu next to the road and a spiky Echidna, a large porcupine type creature the size of a football and pencil size spines - they can grow up to 50cm long. Much of the mileage today was on dusty gravel tracks.
    Stopped in a free community campsite with bbq facilities and a tennis court! This particular site had drinking water and toilet facilities, however most remote sites we have stayed at are basic with a non-flush compost toilet , no electricity or shelter and water has to be taken with you. Many service stations and sports/parks have free hot showers so we can stay fresh and sociable!

    At the Campground

    November 20, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Stayed around the camp site today, this holiday was more about a rest. Just a shame the camp ground is not that appealing.

    After breakfast we had coffee at an aboriginal Cafe right next door the the camp ground. The food and surroundings are great.

    Back for lunch and a swim.

    Gina a Phillip dropped by to check out our tent then we went to Mudgee Club for afternoon tea.

    We hit Woolworths for some last minute grocery items and back to our tent for dinner and a movie.

    Aboriginal Dinner Show

    November 21, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

    Tonight we went back to aboriginal Cafe for dinner and a show. Whilst the show was not that professional it was still very interesting. We both had hamburger, John a roo burger and Carol slow cooked lamb in spices. The desert was just a yummy pretty chocolate tart.Read more

    Packing up

    November 22, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Up early as it is pack up day. We did some yesterday which helped but guess what it is raining, well a light shower. Due to the rain it took a little longer than it should of because we could not leave things outside or start parking the trailer.

    Once the rain shower finished we could finish packing.

    All done and on the road.

    Big 4 Mudgee

    November 17, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    The drive for John was easy no traffic and fairly good roads.

    The caravan park is very basic and the tent is on dirt. I think we might be the only tent all other sites have vans.

    Tent is basically up now just putting up shelves and making it look like we are glamping rather than camping.

    Now for a swim a tad cold but refreshing after putting up the tent.
