“The Hunter Valley, situated just two hours drive from Sydney is Australia’s oldest wine region, and well worth a visit.
Australia’s oldest wine region isn’t just home to award-winning sémillon and shiraz, cellar-door tastings and beautiful vineyard hotels. The fertile valley, just a two-hour drive north of Sydney, offers a feast of experiences, from boutique beer trails to olive oil tasting, locally made chocolate to endless orchards.
Follow the pretty lanes that weave through groves and vines and you will encounter gourmet restaurants, local chefs offering cookery classes using regional ingredients and food markets. See the vines from a different angle on a hot-air balloon ride, snap up amazing arts and crafts at the galleries and counter some of that overindulgence with horse riding and cycling tours to take in your surroundings.”
