Take a scenic drive to Rylstone from Mudgee via Lue, only 28kms from town, to enjoy the charm of the region’s outlying historic villages. Savour a beer in a country pub. Lue (chain of waterholes), believed to be pronounced in the Aboriginal language like ‘Loo-wee’, was originally named Dungaree.
The village was moved to allow for the installation of the rail line in 1884 when it was a busy little village on the route to the Hunter Region. In its heyday, Lue boasted a bakery, hotel, blacksmith, two general stores, a product merchant and a butcher. Today, there is the iconic Lue Hotel which has been serving locals and visitors for almost 100 years, the unique Lue Pottery and some self-contained and farm stay accommodation options, as well as fantastic hiking, kayaking and fishing right on your doorstep.
For the more adventurous there is a premier motocross facility. With more than 10,000 acres at your disposal, the Louee Enduro & Motocross complex has tracks and courses to suit every rider, no matter their age or ability.
