At 180 years young, the Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest and best-known wine region and is soaked in history, but is certainly not a museum piece.
Take a short break of holiday to see Hunter Valley winemakers produce an array of exceptional wines, including iconic Semillon and Shiraz, and more recently Chardonnay and Verdelho varietals. With more than 150 premium wine producers, a visit to a Hunter Valley cellar door is a must. Just an hour and a half from Sydney on the north coast of NSW, visit the legendary Hunter Valley.
With fine dining in stately houses, languid lunches deep within the vineyards or a quick snack at an alfresco café, there are taste sensations at every turn. Take a short break or holiday to indulge. Bespoke providores offer a banquet of gourmet delights such as olives, olive oils, cheeses, chocolates, jams and tapenades for you to enjoy, perfect for a picnic amongst the vines.
Explore the Hunter Valley Gardens, over 25 landscaped hectares of themed display gardens and bask in the lavish array of colour and scent, no matter the season
Soar over the vineyards with a hot-air balloon, helicopter or vintage warbird flight, then play a round of golf at one of our championship golf courses.
Local galleries are a nirvana for art lovers, from paint to sculpture, glasswork to photography, hidden gems are nestled throughout the region waiting to be discovered.
