And the waters kept rising. Mudgee normally receives on average 52mm a month but at the near completion of July a new record of 104mm has been set.

Many sporting grounds and roads were closed, as water levels rose, even the gates to Lawson Park were shut and Mudgee SES was kept busy responding to calls for assistance monitoring water levels.

The outcome is a picture perfect Mudgee river valley. With stunning vistas basking in the winter sun. The Mudgee Spring will truely bloom.

Come and enjoy at Horizon Mudgee, the region’s only 5 star independently rated self- contained Mudgee accomodation. Set on 50 private acres for the exclusive use of just 8 lucky guests.
