Just up the road from the well known wine area town of Mudgee, Gulgong is a quiet little historic town. Mudgee seems to be having a coal mining related economic boom and the central business district is quite busy every day. Gulgong was by no means deserted, but did not have the same high level of activity as Mudgee. In many ways that is a good thing.
After escaping Sydney, we travelled through Blackheath where Jezebel charmed the locals. In the photo she is checking out the streets of the town. She is now right at home in a guesthouse in Mudgee. See: www.thadycottagemudgee.com
