After morning pickup in Sydney, travel by air-conditioned coach for about two hours to reach the Hunter Valley, passing by the Hawkesbury River and an old convict-built road as your coach climbs into the hills.
The Hunter Valley has earned a reputation for great wine and food, making it a popular day tour from Sydney. With your guide, you’ll make the most of your time and visit some of the best establishments in the valley.
During your tour, expect to stop at wineries, such as McGuigan Winery, in addition to enjoying a lunch feast at Hunter Valley Resort. Established in the 1880's McGuigan Wines is now one of the most awarded wineries in the world having won 'worlds best winemaker' three times.
The Hunter Valley Resort lies in the heart of Hunter Valley. View Shiraz vineyards that have flourished there for decades as you dine a delicious lunch with a selection of 5 mains with homemade loaves of bread to share and a glass of wine, beer or soft drink.
Learn about wine-making during a private tour of a vineyard, perhaps taste a flight of locally brewed beers, and keep an eye out for wild kangaroos that your guide may be able to point out to your group. After lunch, visit Leogate Estate, where you can sample their award-winning wines and hear about their history in the region.
Wrap up your day in Hunter Valley with a stop at Hunter Valley Chocolate Company and sample their locally made chocolates and fudge and see the onsite production room.
