Your private guide will meet you in Sydney.
Departing early at 8am, head north across the Sydney Harbour Bridge towards the towns of Windsor and Richmond. It is here that you join the Bells Line of Road on the Eastern Side of the Blue Mountains, slowly winding your way along this picturesque stretch of road. We make a stop along the way to grab a coffee and chat with the locals. Continuing we climb the mountains and pass by Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens crossing over to the western side of the Blue Mountains. See the rugged cliffs and deep gorges that the mountains are well known for. We continue past the township of Lithgow and connect with the Great Western Highway. Passing by the historic town of Capertee, part of the magnificent Capertee Valley, we make a turn and head towards the Turon Gates National Park. This little-known area is a pristine part of New South Wales you would never had known existed. Keep a look out for kangaroos and wallabies as we meander along a well graded dirt road towards the burbling Turon River before arriving at your Glamping Site.
Pitched on the edge of the river in the shade of ancient gum trees, welcome to your glamorous permanent tent for the next 2 nights. Relax and enjoy some lunch while you settle into your luxurious surrounds. Wander out onto the deck overlooking the river for a lazy afternoon or maybe take a bush walk and explore the surrounding area. Or for the more adventurous, take a horse ride along the nearby trails. Whatever it is enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the pristine surrounds. Later that night, enjoy a self-catered dinner from the hamper provided including local beers and wine. Afterwards enjoy a roaring camp fire gazing up at one million stars, or maybe indulge inside your tent in a luxurious hot bath before falling into your cosy King sized bed for the night.
Enjoy a self-cooked breakfast from your hamper this morning. Your guide will meet you at 9.30am this morning for a wonderful food and wine tour of the nearby town of Mudgee. Mudgee has become well known for its thriving wineries and excellent local eateries. Enjoy the scenic drive along country roads towards Mudgee. We make a stop in town to grab a coffee and you will also have some time to stroll along the main street, perusing the local arts and crafts stores.
Re boarding your vehicle, we now head towards Robert Stein Wines. Well known for their award winning Riesling, enjoy the beautiful surrounds and also take a look at their vintage motorcycle collection. From here we head to the exquisite Lowe Estate, where you will enjoy some amazing tastings within their quaint cellar door, surrounded by stunning gardens. Lunch can be enjoyed at Lowes today or in a nearby restaurant. After lunch we now make our way to Slow Fox Wines, featuring Mudgee’s own Malbec. A tasty blended red wine. You will also enjoy Tempranillo’s, a hearty Shiraz and fruit driven Cabernet. To finish your day, we make a stop at Mudgee Honey Haven, offering tastings of honey as well as Spiced and Liquer Mead. A perfect way to complete your tastings. Rejoining the vehicle, we now continue back to Turon Gates where your luxury tent awaits.
Dinner tonight will be self-cooked again from your hamper including local beers and wines.
Awake to another magical morning overlooking the Turon River today and enjoy a beautiful self-cooked breakfast. You will have time after breakfast to take another bush walk or just relax on your deck before your driver collects you 11am.
