An exclusive mountaintop retreat just outside Mudgee

Ruwenzori Retreat is an exclusive, secluded, fully self-contained, and truly unique accomodation near Mudgee, the food and wine-lover’s paradise in Central West NSW, just 3.5 hours from Sydney.

A life-long labour of love and the private hideaway of TV personality, travel company owner and rail enthusiast, Scott McGregor, it’s one of the most popular accomodation choices in Mudgee - for families, groups or couples wanting a private and romantic getaway.

To make it even more exclusive, Ruwenzori has a single hire policy which means you have this special place and the 20ha of mountain bush around it all to yourself.

The State Car

An original 1920s TAM Sleeping Car, with exquisite original features including polished cedar panelling, pressed metal ceilings and brass and silver fittings.

The Dining Car

Built in 1890, originally a Sydney passenger “Cowboy car”, the Dining Car is now the central hub of food and entertainment at Ruwenzori.

The Pullman

A perfect and private single bedroom in its own classic carriage. Originally built as a coalfields brake-van in the 1920’s, the 4 wheel ‘Caboose’ sits on its own small branch line of track beside the Dining Car

The Guards Van

The Guards Van is a charming compact Queen bedroom with en-suite, was opened in April 2021 and is the most recent addition to our train stay .

The Station

Built by Scott and friends in 1988 from original railway station components, the Station is our social hub. The large atmospheric room is a showcase for some of Scott’s private collection.
