Perched on top of the great dividing range at 750 metres above sea level Didgy Ridge is set on 34 scenic acres and overlooks a pretty valley with views back to the township of Mudgee from the lookout.

Fully insulated rustic country cottage with 3 bedrooms which will comfortably sleep 5 people.

Fully equipped kitchen.

Lounge room is fitted out with a 130cm plasma TV, Bluray player and 5.1 surround sound system.

The lounge room is also air conditioned and has a wood heater to keep you cosy and warm during the winter months.

There are around 5 acres of cleared land around the house with the balance of the land being natural bushland which is teaming with wildlife and interesting rock formations. There is even a waterfall on the property that runs over a huge solid quartz rock formation! The surrounding properties are unfenced giving you access to around 200 acres of walking tracks.

Some of the wildlife we have seen over the years includes, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Wombats, Echidnas, Blue tongue lizards, Goanna's, Eagles, Parrots, Black/ white cockatoos, Finches, Wrens and Galahs.

Located on tar sealed roads just 30 km's (18-20 minutes drive) due north of the township of Mudgee (next door to the Ruwenzori retreat) and 24 km's (15 minutes drive) due east of the famous gold town of Gulgong you can enjoy the benefits of country living with the convenience of being close to town.

Local attractions

25+ wineries only a 10 minutes drive away.

The famous tourist walk "The Drip" is only a 22km drive from Didgy Ridge.

The township of Gulgong (15 minute drive) has two museums with the Gulgong Pioneer museum being my pick.

Gulgong also has some lovely pubs such as the rustic Prince Of Wales Hotel.

Mudgee (Aboriginal name that means "Nest in the hills") is the largest township in the area and has plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs and other attractions to keep you entertained.

Mudgee also has lots of special events during the year and is regularly fully booked out on special event weekends.....not something you will have to worry about!

Mining contractor? 10km's to Ulan and 6km's to Moolarben coal mines. Stay close to work!

***Coming in 2016: We are about to build a cedar cabin at one of the lookouts which will include a log fire and large deck where you will be able to enjoy sleeping on the day bed or having a BBQ while taking in the breathtaking rural views.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy Outback Adventure We truly enjoyed our stay at Didgy Ridge! The home was perfect for our weekend getaway. Every little thing was taken care of- from categorized containers of utensils in the kitchen, to instructions on how to use the TV. The fireplace was already set up ready to go and there was shampoo, conditioner and body wash all provided. The property that the house is situated on is huge. There are amazing views, and an awesome hiking track. We would definitely stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to getaway! We very much enjoyed our stay at Didgy Ridge! It had everything we needed for our home away from home. The fireplace was amazing with plenty of wood ready to burn. Great selection of DVD's to choose from. Beds were comfy. Would definitely love to stay here again sometime!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet country fun Had a lovely stay at Didgy Ridge. The house is well set up and super warm with the fire going. It has a great amount of entertainment for any rainy days or you can wander on the property and meet the wild goats when the sun is shining. Definitely recommend for a quiet country stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clan and Cozy Cottage idgy Ridge is such a lovely place to escape the hustle and bustle and just relax. The property was very well equipped and had everything you needed for a comfortable week away. The wood heater was much appreciated both for evening heating and that cosy atmosphere. Plenty of wood stocked. Excellent communications was reassuring. Good value for money if you don't mind being out of town but that's the idea! Caretakers are very helpful and friendly.
