This rarely offered opportunity to travel by private train on the scenic, normally inaccessible Mudgee line to be wined and dined in true Mudgee-style in a single weekend escape is a treat to remember! With a well-known and much-revered train at our disposal, the retro-restored Capertee Valley Explorer (also known as The Blue Zephyr), made up of carriages and the Dining and Bar cars from the iconic Southern Aurora, we’ll wander over the Blue Mountains, skirting the magnificent Capertee Valley to the rural idyll of Rylstone with a couple of stops and a sit-down lunch on board. Upon arrival in the charming village of Rylstone, you’ll be transferred in comfortable coaches to the historic food and wine lovers’ paradise of Mudgee, where the fun begins.
