Since the Mudgee region was first discovered by Europeans in 1821 it has developed enormously. Mudgee was gazetted in 1838 and grew rapidly. The discovery of gold in nearby Hargraves in 1851 led to a gold rush which saw the town boom. Around the same time the first grapevines were planted in Mudgee. Today the gold rush is long gone, but Mudgee remains a thriving town, with a growing reputation for fine wine.
