TAKE THE TRAIN
The Western XPT arrives every day from Sydney and all points east, at 11.48am on its way to Dubbo and then departs at 4.11pm. There’s plenty of time to have something to eat and explore the village, its shops and cellar doors, or stay a day or two to relax and enjoy our lovely village. Book tickets online with NSW Trainlink or by phone 13 22 32. Our beautifully restored heritage station is right in the village and easy walking to shops, galleries, cellar doors, pubs, eateries and accommodation.
Fine food and wine complement an escape to Millthorpe. Enjoy dining at award winning restaurants, delightful cafes with outdoor courtyards, great coffee and local produce, as well as a variety of pubs and clubs each with their own restaurant. Drop into one of the welcoming cellar doors for locally produced award winning cool-climate wines or join a wine tour.
As well as our major annual village events (Millthorpe Public School Markets, Winter Fire Festival, Garden Ramble and Millfest) you can enjoy regular and bespoke programmes of arts and crafts – art classes and lampshade making; health and well being – mindfulness/meditation and yoga, massage and beauty care; as well as regular live music performances by our highly talented local musicians.
You’ll find a variety of delightful places to stay including charming B&B’s, on farm and in town cottages, hotels and a boutique motel.
