Hunter Valley, New South Wales

 

New South Wales' lush Hunter Valley has become one of Australia's premier wine producing regions, playing host to numerous acclaimed cellar doors and boutique wineries from some of Australia's biggest wine producers. The myriad vineyards and lush fields of the region give it a tranquil quality that serves to satisfy visitor's love of food, wine and scenery – simultaneously making it not just a destination for wine connoisseurs, but also a pleasant escape for those simply looking for a change of pace from the city hustle and bustle.

Why the Hunter Valley?

 

State: New South Wales

Why it's special: Expansive wine region home to nearly 100 wineries; lovely blend of culinary delights and verdant scenery; easy access from hub of Newcastle nearby

Best time to go: Autumn

The greater Hunter Valley region is a wine-lover's dream and is home to more than 90 wineries featuring some of the finest Semillon, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cab Sav and Pinot Noir drops in Australia. Reached in just around 2 hours from the Sydney CBD, the Hunter Valley well deserves its place as both a great single and multi-day trip destination for locals, interstate and international visitors.

The region's famously delicious food also deserves a mention here as the Hunter Valley is home to some of NSW's best restaurants outside of Sydney. Many of these local establishments take full advantage of the area's local produce with rich cheeses and fresh fruits making their way into some spectacular creations. After you have finished indulging your palate, there's plenty more here to keep you occupied as well.

If you're looking for things to do other than visiting wineries then you won't be disappointed. Hot air ballooning is a popular pastime that allows you to see the rich tapestry of fields and vineyards from high above, while cycling through the vineyards, horse riding through nature, enjoying a round of golf and being pampered at day spas are other must-do items in the Hunter Valley.

 

The weather of the Hunter Valley largely reflects its overall atmosphere, with a cool and cosy climate featuring largely blue skies and crisp, fresh air. Nestling up by the fireplace with a glass of the good stuff is an indulgent delight during the cooler seasons, while the colours of the region truly come to life during spring.

Take the opportunity to use the Hunter region's abundant nature to burn off some of those wine-and-cheese calories and you'll soon discover there's plenty to explore here – whether it's by wheel or foot, greenery abounds in the form of both the national park of Barrington Tops with its extensive rainforest terrain, the picturesque blue-and-green contrast offered by the waters of Lake St. Clair (the perfect spot for a picnic), and the varied farms and markets of the Upper Hunter area.

Regardless of if you're merely a Sydneysider wanting to make the relatively short getaway, or an interstate Aussie or international tourist looking for one of Australia's best blends of both culinary delights and relaxation, the Hunter Valley's knack for providing exactly what the body needs makes it an idyllic escape locale.
