We took a hire car from Newcastle to the Hunter Valley. Visiting the wineries was great fun and at each one, we found the staff to be very welcoming and knowledgable. Most wineries offer free delivery, which is convenient for interstate travellers. As there are too many wineries for one weekend, we will have to go back. There is much... More

Take the tourist road from Sydney and meander through quiet country side. Small historic villages along the way and wine tasting. It gets quite developed as you travel east after Broke. Tinkle wood was a special visit with wandering chickens and nice wine. Very organic style.

I visited the Hunter Valley as part of my daughter in law to be's hens weekend. I hasn't been for many years and was delighted at the standard of the wineries, the general atmosphere and the accommodation choices. I will be keen to return!

We love visiting Hunter Valley. Just about 90mins drive from Sydney. We enjoyed looking at the different stalls in the weekend markets. We ended up buying a few jars of homemade jam, some lovely natural soap bars, honey, homemade sourdough bread, wood baked pizza, etc. We also went to the Binnorie cheese shop for some cheese tasting. We bought a... More

We had an excellent day trip to the Hunter Valley. The HVG Gardens are to centre tourist attraction in the area. The entire area is set up for weddings and reception events.

There are so many different directions you can go and still keep on discovering this great area of NSW. We had not been on the new highway and decided to go try it. A great drive and a lot faster then the old way. We got off at the New England Hwy at Hermitage Road Exit. There are several exits... More

We made a brief stop to buy sparkling wine at Peterson's and decided to visit the restaurant. Luckily there was a table available, otherwise we would never have had such a delicious and unforgettable meal - one of our culinary highlights in Australia! Despite a slow service, perhaps due to the rush hour, we managed to order wonderful sparkling wine... More

The wine producing area of Hunter Valley in NSW Australia is over two hours' drive from Sydney. The drive becomes more and more beautiful the nearer it gets to the vineyards. There are roughly 40 vineyards so don't consider trying to go to them all. A little research really pays off. A number of vineyards offer meals which can make... More

A 2 hours drive from Sydney City, you will arrive at this beautiful vineyard region where you can have a day tour or stay a couple of days to explore. There is 360 degrees of great view and sumptuous dining around the region. Go for hot air balloon ride and wine tasting in one of the many great wineries. Overall... More
