Then next, something completely different, at the Honey Haven we can sample not only varieties of locally produced honey and mead but many other local products. Even a cuppa for those who wish. Back to our motel to rest up before dinner.
FRIDAY 20th March. (BL)
INTO THE GLEN DAVIS VALLEY
This morning we depart Mudgee, following the now disused railway line through Lue to Rylstone. Still heading southeast we venture into the Glen Davis Valley. This valley was once a hive of activity when the mining of “Shale” was an important industry during the Second World War. After a short break for morning tea we obtain the services of a local guide who will explain in detail the life and times from a period long since past. Today we have a light lunch before leaving the valley for the afternoon drive back through the Blue Mountains and home to Campbelltown.
THURSDAY 19th March. (BLD)
HISTORIC MUDGEE (part 2)
This morning we visit Gooree Park. Gooree’s origins date back some 40 plus years, when Filipino businessman Eduardo Cojuangco purchased three historic local properties and created his home in Australia, with the agglomeration to become known as “Gooree Park.” Today it has an enviable reputation as one of the country’s leading thoroughbred breeding properties and with the largest vineyard in the Mudgee region it is gaining a reputation for excellence wines.
On our way back to Mudgee we pause at Robert Steins Winery, more than a wine tasting, we also have time to explore their Motor Cycle collection. Our final stop for the afternoon at “The Cellar by Gilbert’ for not only more wines but a selection of locally produced cheeses.
