Hunter Valley Boutique Gourmet Wine Tour

Hunter Valley Boutique Gourmet Wine Tour

Relax, get away from the city, and enjoy some fabulous wine and food in Australia's oldest wine-growing region. Just 2 hours north of Sydney, the Hunter Valley combines world-renowned wines with gourmet local produce and stunning countryside - all the makings for a fabulous, relaxing day. This tour concentrates on the smaller, boutique wineries in this stunning area, where regional variations are even more prominent and the passion of the wine-makers is obvious. These wineries help bring the winemaking process to life, and you will enjoy private tastings with those for whom wine-making is their greatest passion.

Free day walking in Blue Mountains

With a blue horizon of eucalyptus trees that appear to stretch on forever, expect to be enchanted by the natural beauty of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Set out on foot to explore some of the 140 kilometres (87 miles) of walking tracks, admire the native bushland, marvel at the impressive rock formations and explore underground caves on a holiday centred around the outdoors. Whether you're out for a gentle stroll with the family or embarking on a vigorous multi-day trek with calf-burning descents to the valley floor, the Blue Mountains has a bushwalk to suit every level of ability and enthusiasm.

We recommend popping into the National Park Visitors Centre in Katoomba to discuss options.

Experience the Beautiful Orient Cave

Regarded as Australia's most outstanding cave system - with 11 spectacular show caves, pure underground rivers and amazing formations - Jenolan Caves is among the finest and oldest cave systems in the world.

As you move through the Orient Cave, from one breathtaking chamber to one even more highly decorated, you will be awestruck. The Orient Cave, along with the Temple of Baal and Ribbon Caves are entered through a man-made tunnel 120 metres in length known as the Binoomea Cut which was constructed in 1954.

The Orient Cave could well be the most beautiful cave in the world!

What Emma says about this tour: This 7-day tour of NSW covered a lot. I loved sipping Hunter Valley Semillon while watching the kangaroos roaming in the vineyard. The beautiful Orient Cave Tour in the Jenolan Caves system is really out of this world and I highly recommend it. Also, you will be dazzled by the bright lights of glamorous Sydney.
