Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tour from Sydney

Wine Tasting

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 Leogate Estate Wines and McGuigan Wines, in addition to enjoying a lunch feast at Hunter Valley Resort. The family-owned Leogate Estate Wines produces excellent Semillon, Chardonnay, and Shiraz, as well as blends, Rose, Frizzante, and low-alcohol options. Established in the 1880's McGuigan Wines rates as an old-timer.

The Hunter Valley Resort lies in the heart of Hunter Valley. View Shiraz vineyards that have flourished there for decades as you dine on your choice of a fish, chicken, lamb, or vegetarian lunch paired with wines that enhance your meal.

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.

Before returning to Sydney, stop at Hunter Valley Gardens for a leisurely stroll through their landscaped gardens. You can also peek at their gift shop, step into The Garden Cellars to taste additional wine, beer, and liquor (own expense), or opt for coffee at one of the cafes.

Your guide drops you back at your hotel around 6:15 p.m.

We went on this tour as non-drivers who wanted a glimpse of the Hunter Valley Gardens. We chatted with our guide Ben, who was more than happy to help us out and included an extra drop-off, meaning we were able to spend extra time in the amazing gardens we were happy to skip one of the wineries to allow for the extra time. Ben was a fantastic guide, and was very entertaining and informative. The wine tasting was lovely, lunch was fantastic and all in all it was an amazing day. We would definitely do this trip again, especially if Ben was our guide.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

An amazing day ! A bit late picking us up, but we'll blame heavy traffic in Sydney for that.
A long day that was made interesting with chat from the driver and our new found friends.
The 3 stops we had were all different and all very interesting.
Don't hesitate, book it... a great way to see the countryside and let someone else do the driving.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

This is a great tour for getting out of Sydney and seeing the countryside. There were a number of vineyards available to see and the lunch was really top of the line. The wine was good at each vineyard, some better than others. The bus was very comfortable and our driver very pleasant and informative.
