Gulgong, a national treasure steeped in gold rush history and immortalised by bush poet Henry Lawson, is now home to a rare opportunity in the hospitality sector as the iconic Ten Dollar Town Motel & Larsen’s Restaurant is offered for sale.
Nestled in the Mudgee region of Country NSW, Gulgong beckons visitors to step back in time, offering a glimpse into Australia’s gold rush era with its beautifully preserved streetscape and heritage-listed buildings.

Gold fever gripped the region in 1870, transforming Gulgong from a humble sheep run into a bustling gold mining center.

Today, visitors can delve into the town’s gold rush legacy at the Gulgong Pioneers Museum and the Gulgong Gold Experience, exploring the replica mine and marveling at the historic Poppet Head that once oversaw bustling mine activity.
