Thinking about working in the Mudgee Region?

You’re not alone. Over the past decade, the Mudgee Region has seen a huge influx of Sydney Siders and Coast Dwellers looking for a more laid-back lifestyle. 

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 in March 2020, we’ve seen even more people flock to the country – either to live or simply visit. Needless to say, Mudgee is booming! While the tourism industry is steady thanks to the region’s fertile land, abundance of vineyards and award-winning restaurants, a large portion of the Central West’s economy depends on coal mining.

Why work in the Mudgee Region?

One of the great things about Mudgee as a mining town is that it offers a metropolitan feel with its selection of schools, jam packed calendar of events, boutique shops, cafe scene, airport and proximity to cities like Orange and Dubbo. It’s also only roughly a 30 minute drive to all the area’s mines, which means you save time commuting!
