15 May 2019 North to Mudgee

Distance: 347.5km
Fuel: 32L

The journey I hate. Decided to head north toward Sydney and then west through the Blue Mountains. Set off at about 8.30 and immediately was stalled in the Wollongong workers rush but it was OK once I hit Picton Road and headed north on the Hume Highway. Then the Sydney traffic, as always, was hell followed by the inevitable road works in the Blue Mountains, such a relief to reach Lithgow and know that you are back to sane traffic conditions.

From then on it was easy, I only stopped once just to stretch my legs before reaching Mudgee just after 1pm. Found the Caravan Park and checked in – reasonable price at $25  for a powered site.


After setting up I had a cup of tea, drove to get fuel before returning  and going for a walk into the town. It is a pretty town.

There is even a decent looking club within a few minutes walk of the caravan park though I didn’t go, ended up watching ‘The Weekly’’ and reading my book.
