Get back to basics with a no-fuss holiday in breathtaking countryside within Capertee National Park, an hour and a half drive from Mudgee. Capertee Cottage, nestled by the picturesque riverside setting, offers adventurous families and friends a great opportunity to go car touring, bushwalking, mountain biking and birdwatching.
Active types will love exploring the nearby tracks on foot or bicycle. However if you want something a little more leisurely simply soak in the scenic river views while listening to the chattering lorikeets and honeyeaters.
In the evening, kangaroos and wallabies are often seen grazing nearby. Gather the family and delight in a barbecue under a blanket of stars. You might even hear the call of the powerful or barking owl echoing through the bush.
