Ferntree Gully Reserve

Walk through unique rainforests and western plant communities at Ferntree Gully Reserve. There are a number of walking tracks at Ferntree Gully that take you down into the cool narrow ferntree-studded valley floor, and/or around the top edge of the rocks where you can get an overview of the valley and the unusual rock formations on either side.

Every Saturday of the month features a different local market. Peruse the markets at your own pace and discover handcrafted textiles, local produce, freshly baked bread and cakes to olive oils and cheese. All stallholders must adhere to strict guidelines, ensuring that all goods sold must come from the Mudgee Region. If you’re wanting something authentic to remember Mudgee by, you can’t go past the markets!
