Why you should consider retiring in Mudgee

Nestled in the fertile Cudgegong River valley on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, Mudgee is a vibrant community renowned for its attractive scenery, historic charm and thriving food and wine production.

Recognised as a prosperous business and tourism hub with strong health and education sectors, Mudgee is well-known for its produce and craft markets, great coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, wineries, breweries, live music, concerts and exhibitions.


Mudgee is home to a lot of clubs, so joining one of them is the perfect way to involve yourself in the community. Whether it be the Lions Club, Rotary, Probus, View, CWA, Church Group, bushwalking club, or wood working club, there’s something for everyone and it’s always nice to feel a part of something. You could also do volunteer work at one of the local schools or join in on one of the many social and sporting activities offered such as senior friendly arts, cultural and interest groups, golf, tennis, bowls, rugby league and union, motocross and horse racing.

The nearby nature reserves, national parks and world heritage listed bushland also offer cycling, canoeing, river cruises, fishing, camping and star gazing.

Mudgee is also home to many great boutiques, fabulous coffee shops and cafes, and plenty of wineries and breweries, many with fantastic restaurants attached to them! There are always things happening throughout the year, prominent events ranging from a month-long celebration of food and wine to Sculptures in the Garden and music and literature festivals. Currently a State-Of-The-Art gallery is under construction which is something to look forward to!To find out what the Mudgee area has to offer visit here: Mudgee region


These are so many great reasons to enjoy your retirement in Mudgee, from the clean country air, to the pride the locals have for their town. Mudgee offers a relaxed, rural lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but still offers essential facilities such as access to the new 70-million-dollar hospital, and plenty of great doctors and specialists.

No matter what your interests, there is always something to do, even if it’s just taking a quiet walk through one of the beautiful parks or walkways. There are also no traffic lights!

Oak Tree Retirement Village Mudgee is located in Caerleon Estate, a new master planned development on the western fringe of town. It boasts all the benefits of rural living like peace and quiet and fresh air, while still overlooking town and only a short 5-minute drive from the CBD.

If you’re more of a home body, the boutique village has great facilities such as a village centre, bowling green, in-ground swimming pool, hair dressing salon and gym. The village bus also offers scheduled trips into town if you like getting out and about! There are regular social events held at the village, but there’s never any pressure to join in if they aren’t for you.

There are few times in your life when you can truly kick back and relax. Enjoy your retirement with more independence and a supportive community around you, in a beautiful setting.

Why would you want to live anywhere else? The scenery is beautiful, locals are friendly, and the opportunity to wine and dine is fabulous.
