The Mudgee Area

The township of Mudgee was first reached by white man in 1821 by William Lawson and first settled in 1822 by George and Henry Cox. When you drive into Mudgee it is a sight to behold with rolling hills, gorgeous mountains oozing with countryside peace and a warm fuzzy feeling. Mudgee is blessed with historic buildings - described by the National Trust as "one of the finest groups of townscape in a country area" Mudgee has many activities and attractions for everyone, and offers a wealth of shopping experiences.

Indulge your senses in the region and visit Gulgong, Rylstone and Kandos - take a step back in time wandering through our museums, go bushwalking, bird watching or gold panning, take some time out to visit our natural wonderland in our National Parks, visit markets, galleries, antique shops, a winery or olive producer or go on a farm walk. Set in 25 acres and located only 12 km from the centre of Mudgee in the heart of the Erudgere valley, Protea Farm Cottages offer the best in self-contained accommodation. There are 3 quality vineyard cellar doors within a 2 km radius. Visits to Burnbrae, Blacklea and Thistle Hill make a great start to your Mudgee experience.

You can sit and admire the stunning views of the valley, providing a great environment to relax and enjoy the sunset and abundant birds and wildlife. If you are a keen bird spotter then you will not be disappointed as we now have an extensive list of birds visiting and breeding on the property. The nights are dark apart from the amazing star display and the only noise is the wildlife. A visit to the observatory just 10 minutes further down the road is a must. If you enjoy painting the views will not disappoint. Come, see, and hear for yourself.

Our cottages are ideal for singles and couples wanting solitude and total relaxation and perfect for large adult groups wanting to book both of them for that special occasion or mini break.
