This is a great walk about 40km from Mudgee. Walk beside the start of the Goulbourn River along a well established track. The round trip is 2.8km with a few stairs but easily manageable for basic fitness levels. Look out for native wildlife before getting...More

The parking lot for The Drip Gorge is located approximately 50 kilometres north (about a 30 minute drive) from Mudgee along the Ulan Road. The drive takes you past some beautiful grazing lands, through some bush and then past some huge ugly black coal mines...More
