The Hunter Valley has a well-earned reputation as Australia’s premier wine region. This area is a must-see for anyone who loves Australian wine and the gourmet food that best accompanies it. Even besides these major attractions, the Hunter Valley has lots to offer. The picturesque landscape of rolling hills and vineyards also contains its fair share of golf courses, luxury spas, historic villages, and farmstays. Located a 3-hour drive from Sydney, this haven is the perfect place to escape for a weekend, a week, or more.
