Dozens of wineries just 10-15 minutes drive away.
The famous tourist walk "The Drip" is only a 22 km drive from Didgy Ridge.
The township of Gulgong (15 minute drive) has two museums with the Gulgong Pioneer museum being my pick.
Gulgong also has some lovely pubs such as the rustic Prince Of Wales Hotel.

Mudgee also has lots of special events during the year and is regularly fully booked out on special event weekends.....not something you will have to worry about!

My wife Lina and I live and own a business in Sydney Australia. We also own a rural property in Mudgee NSW which is about 3.5 hours from Sydney. The rural property "Didgy Ridge" is our holiday home which we have owned for over 12 years. Many of our friends and relatives have enjoyed staying at the property over the years so last year we decided to share our country home with the Airbnb community.
We enjoy the fresh air and the cosy wood fire but most of all we love the peace and quiet of the Australian bush.
We hope that you will also enjoy the experience as much as we do.
Lina and I have a simple outlook in life. Treat people the way you like to be treated and the rest is easy.
