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

This is a beautiful area of New South wales. Absolutely delightful wineries and so many to choose from!! Lots to se and do in this area and also just fun to lazily meander from one winery to another. Spent a glorious 2 days in this area.

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

Can either do a day trip from Sydney or stay 2-3 days - easy drive in rental car. All levels of overnight stays. Friendly wine stops. Like Napa was 25 years ago.....Many gravel roads all ok

About a 2 hour drive from Sydney the Hunter Valley is famed for its wine and in particular what are termed boutique wines. There is lots to see and do most notably the wine tasting which most of the vineyards offer. The choice of wines will suit most pallets and you don't have to be a expert to know what... More

The hunter valley is a gorgeous area and has so much to offer. Hunter valley gardens are always glorious. There are lots of wineries but also cheese factory, chocolate shop and plenty of great places to eat and stay.
