Hunter Valley Wine Tours
The Hunter Valley is a region situated two hours north of Sydney, famous for its sprawling vineyards, impeccable dining scene, authentic local produce and beautiful scenery. Thriving since the 1820’s, The Hunter Valley is the oldest wine growing region in Australia, encompassing a diverse history, luxurious restaurants and a unique charm.
Spend your days tasting the wide variety of wines that the region boasts or join the experts in a tasting masterclass to sample some rare vintage wines grown in the vineyards of the Hunter Valley. Known for its esteemed reputation in Australia, a visit to the Hunter Valley is an absolute must.
There are a multitude of things to do in the Hunter Valley, that don’t necessarily involve drinking wine. Visit some exotic animals at the Hunter Valley Zoo, head out for a walk through the beautiful Hunter Valley Gardens or spend the day bushwalking and mountain bike riding in World Heritage-listed Yengo National Park. If history excites you, learn about the colonial heritage on the convict-built Great North Road or admire ancient Aboriginal rock art and other indigenous Australian culture on the Finchley Cultural Walk.
