Welcome to Central NSW

Village Charm

Fading stately buildings, wide streets and well-tended parks and gardens align Central NSW's larger centres with a past built on gold-mining and bushranger folklore, but this history is often best explored in the smaller villages you might pass through en route. Be sure to stop for a snoop if anything piques your interest. Many villages have quaint museums, and there's usually always a bakery or cafe where you can pick up a pie or a coffee and support these small economies.The villages of Gulgong (near Mudgee) and Millthorpe (near Orange) are both pretty as a postcard and make worthy destinations in themselves. Each features photogenic main streets with wide verandahs, plus old pubs and a healthy smattering of quaint cafes, foodie haunts, wineries and galleries.If you love the tranquillity, you just might want to spend a night or two in a rustic B&B or romantic rural cottage.
