Mudgee is the home of organic wine in Australia and is equally well known for having Australia’s oldest Sangiovese and Barbera vines. With a growing number of cellar doors – 40+ and increasing – from tucked away tin sheds (Skimstone) to large, sleek designed structures (Logan Wines), it’s enough to whet any wine lover’s appetite.
Mudgee is lovely town to visit. The historic town has some of the best-preserved buildings in New South Wales, dating back to gold-rush days. Complemented by wide streets, it's an attractive and welcoming destination. Mudgee also has a growing mix of quality cafes, galleries, boutiques and bars. Roth’s Wine Bar, in the general store that Bob Roth opened in 1923, is said to be Australia’s oldest wine bar.
There’s a burgeoning cafe & food scene. The Mudgee farmer’s market is on the third Saturday of every month and is the "ultimate epicurean show and tell". Meet local producers from honey and hazelnuts, pickles and preserves, olives and oils to figs and free-range Ormiston pork. Guided farm walks are also available each Sunday after the market day, so you can further learn about, taste and take home the wonderful produce from this growing gourmet hub.

Mudgee Cycling Tour Package Dates & Prices
This is a self guided tour that can be enjoyed on any day or date that suits you, subject only to accommodation availability.
A quality e-bike is included in your tour package.
Prices are listed below, note there is a $50pp surcharge added for any booking that includes or is adjacent to any Australian or NSW public holiday.
Self guided cycling tours do require participants to be adaptable and able to solve issues whilst on tour. On call support is included in your tour, but it is expected that you will know how to repair punctures and make minor adjustments to gears, handlebars and seats if required, and if bringing your own bike then this is expected. For anything more serious, we will be able to assist with a call to our 1300 665 330 number at any time during your trip. You should be able to read a map and follow directions, either on a device or a printed map (supplied) and that you have a good sense of direction. Getting a little bit lost, or having to ask locals for directions is all part of choosing to travel on a self guided basis. The maps and directions provided to you is updated regularly and tailored to your specific trip (hotels, restaurants are noted, and marked). If this is something that makes your nervous or uncertain, or if you know for sure that you can’t fix a puncture or aren’t confident reading a map, then we do recommend our extensive range of small group fully guided tours where all the stress of navigation, bike maintenance and logistics are all done for you. However, if comfortable with this then the freedom of a self guided cycling trip is wonderful, and once confident can be the preferred choice across our range of cycling tours.
Accommodation does vary depending on dates and group size, but typical examples are:
- "Comfy": Comfort Inn Mudgee
- "Select": Cobb & Co or simiilar
- "Lux": Perry Street Hotel or Parkview Mudgee

Everything from Tour De Vines team was spot on...from their organisation of accommodation - particularly with Mudgee being busy at the moment - through to the comprehensive itinerary, guides and directions!! All this meant for a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend where we could just get on with wine tasting , riding and enjoying the region as everything that could be organised for us had been.
