Cawarra on the Park has been lovingly restored to its former glory, yet contains all the features of modern living.
This home is ideal for groups up to 10 people for weddings, family get-togethers and weekend wine-tasters. Bookings are exclusively for the whole house, as we do not offer individual room lettings.
It retains the charm of a bygone era including a secluded quarter acre garden with magnificent old trees and meandering convict brick pathways.
It has 4 generous king-sized bedrooms with original cedar fireplaces + a smaller 5th bedroom, and 3 bathrooms. IMPORTANT Please advise of preferred bed configuration when booking, otherwise bed setting cannot be guaranteed at late notice.
Please note that the 5th bedroom is small and does lack privacy as it is required to walk through this room to the 4th bedroom.
A newly renovated kitchen for those wishing to dine in or only a few short steps to many of Mudgee's renowned restaurants and cafes.
Cawarra on the Park provides you with a prime location to Mudgee's CBD, close to the shops, churches, sporting fields and local vineyards.
With luxurious beds, beautiful linen and the spacious surrounds of a grand old home.
Relax and enjoy some simple pleasures in the historic home right opposite Mudgee's iconic Lawson Park with walking paths and bordered by the Cudgegong River flowing through it.

A touch of History:
Built in 1866, Cawarra is an Aboriginal word meaning, ‘beside running water’ with obvious links to the Cudgegong River opposite the house in Mudgee’s iconic Lawson Park.
After a little research, it was named because in the year it was built, the ill-fated steamship called the “Cawarra” sunk off the coast of Newcastle at Stockton Beach, on July 12, 1866, being one of Maritimes worst disasters in the day.
Or it could have been named by a past resident of the house who was a Lindemann from the great wine making family in the Hunter Valley; when she was married at her family home “Cawarra” in Gresford.
