Wingen - Upper Hunter Country

WingenWingen is a little village half way between Murrurundi and Scone on the New England Highway.

Wingen is known for the local "Burning Mountain" tourist attraction, a burning underground coal seam. 

Things to do:

  • Do as the bullock teams did in earlier times on their days journey between Scone and Murrurundi and make the Durham Hotel the resting place for lunch.
  • Visit the Burning Mountain Nature Reserve.
  • Make the short trip to Towarri National Park and the Washpools.
  • Keep watch for some interesting old homesteads as you drive around the locality.


Burning Mountain Nature Reserve is located on the New England Highway about 2 km north of Wingen. The well-signposted walk to the summit takes around an hour at a leisurely pace.
