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.

We were staying nearby at Bimbadeen Estate (lovely accommodation with fantastic views) and had visited Savannah Estate some years ago and enjoyed their wines so we decided to make this winery our first stop of the afternoon. Somehow we didn’t get to any more wineries that afternoon and managed to purchase a few cases of lovely wine. Joe at the... More

We had a great day with Dan who is the quintessential Aussie but he knew his wines. He took us to a couple of boutique wineries where we were treated to private tasting and full explanation about the grapes and process of making the wine. We also visited a few of the well known well established vineyards. Dan is obviously... More

Charming, romantic, picturesque are few of the words I can think of to describe Hunter Valley which is situated at the backdrop of stunning Brokenback Mountain Ranges. What better way to spend a long weekend than to go for multiple wine tastings accompanied by some yummy boutique cheese while looking at amazing vista!! It took us close to 4 hrs... More

The new motorway has reduced travelling time to the Hunter Valley so it is now an easy day trip from Sydney. You can get there within 2 1/2 hours easy drive from the centre of Sydney.

We took the Newcastle, Hunter Valley Wine Tour with a group from our cruise. Our guide, Mike, was very personable and knowledgable. We visited 4 wineries and a chocolate shop and each stop got better and better. The wines in this region are quite delicious with some different varietals. If you like beautiful scenery, good wine, a smaller group atmosphere,... More
