Driving is perhaps the best way to see the varied landscapes to be encountered between the city and country. We can assure you of a comfortable trip, with all main roads sealed and in good condition.

From Sydney, the six-hour drive takes your 554km north-west through either Mudgee or Dubbo. Whichever route you choose, both offer impressive scenery.

From Dubbo, the drive to Coonamble is 160km (about two hours). from Mudgee, the drive is 265km (about three hours).
