Long Weekend in Mudgee

The June long weekend was only a few weeks ago, yet it seems like months.

Mark and I were lucky enough to be invited by two of our friends to join a group of their friends (most of whom we met for the first time) in Mudgee. We have visited Mudgee before, but going in a group, and staying in serviced apartments was a different experience which was very enjoyable. We had two dinners and a breakfast in house where everyone got together to cook and clean up whilst sharing many good laughs, and when we were out in town I think we made a bit of a name for ourselves.

Many wineries were visited, and our group was pretty lucky to have two designated drivers. Particularly when we visited Burnbrae Wines and decided to enjoy a late lunch on their deck. Ah, what a life!

Later we ended up at the Mudgee Brewing Company where we enjoyed great beers and entertainment by Steve Charles who is a performer that really loves music, and consequently his audience had a great time.

All good things must come to an end, and on Monday when the weather turned we all headed home. With liquid souvenirs.

A great group of gals that I'm looking forward to seeing again-
even though I have to concentrate really hard to understand them
when they get excited and speak really fast


  1. There are serviced apartments in Mudgee? Do you recommend? I love mudgee, great little place. Like the hunter valley but without the crowds

  2. I certainly can recommend the serviced apartments, they are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The website is but don't be put off by it, the website really doesn't do them justice. They are also in walking distance to town.
