Take a closer look at Wollemi National Park, Dunns Swamp, Munghorn Gap National Reserve, Coolah Tops , Goulburn River and other natural sites like Frog Rock, Windamere Dam, The Drip and Hands on the Rock.

Mountains of fun is to be had at your Sydney half way point in the world famous Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves. Stop off for some bush walking and cave sighting before winding your way west.

One cannot talk of a family favourite without discussing the obvious, Dubbo’s Taronga Western Plains Zoo just over an hour from Mudgee an easy and no-brainer day out.

Or stay at home at Horizon, attempt to star count, snuggle by the fire and feel blessed – family life ain’t half bad!
