To visit the Hunter Valley is to experience and enjoy the good things in Australian life and to reward yourself.
The Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest and one of its most well-known wine regions. Here you will find world-class Hunter Valley Semillon that has been called “Australia’s unique gift to the world’, great Australian Shiraz that lasts for generations, and generations of family winemakers that are here to tell the tale.
Add to this a wide array of traditional and contemporary delights expected of a world famous wine region, as well as a myriad of surprises, a rich diversity of pursuits and people and you will find in Hunter Valley Wine Country one of the most vibrant and relaxing places to visit.
Food and Wine
Vineyards were first established in the area in the 1830’s. Since that time, the area has grown both in size and recognition and most of the original families are still here. Proud of their heritage and what the region has become, locals have done everything to create the perfect escape. There are over 120 cellar doors to be found in the area today, and many regions and areas of Hunter Valley Wine Country still yield a myriad of secrets. Pokolbin Wollombi, Broke, Mt View, Rothbury and Lovedale all have their own unique feel and style.
Enjoy a food & wine matching experience, go on a winery tour, or join a wine appreciation class. Or why not follow one of the wine trails that may lead you to discover your next favourite drop.
Discover only the best regional produce, such as cheeses, olive oil and olives and enjoy the delights of our acclaimed chefs and their own unique, but distinctly Australian style. Walk, ride or drive your way through the sweeping vine-lined hills. If you are looking to explore, there are many aspects of the Hunter Valley unknown to most visitors. Whether it is a cellar door or an antique shop hidden down a quiet laneway, historic towns and convict built roads, or ancient indigenous sites, there is something waiting to be discovered.
When it comes to eating, the Hunter Valley is abounding with choice. Choose from one of the 60 restaurants scattered amongst the vines. On a sunny day, collect a feast of local produce from the cheese shops, olive mills and wineries and stop at one of the picnic spots along the road to take in the marvellous sights and smells surrounding you. To add a little exercise, play a round of golf at one of the Hunter Valley’s world class golf courses. Stroll along the green and feel yourself relax as the scents of Wine Country float through the air.
Famous for food and wine, the Hunter Valley has also made a name for producing some of the most spectacular events. There are festivals celebrating the lush local produce, such as Lovedale Long Lunch and Semillon and Seafood and concerts featuring the world’s top musicians. A smooth medley of both local produce and relaxing music is created at Jazz in the Vines and Opera in the Vineyards.
The Hunter Valley has fast established itself as one of Australia’s outstanding culinary destinations and a fine dining experience is a must when visiting the area.
From degustation menus and romantic dining to tapas and casual pub meals, the region can offer it all. Our chefs are proud of the local produce which is reflected in the vibrant menus brimming with local cheeses, olives, breads and, of course, wines.

“Nice tidy room great location”
ColinCox53 - via Tripadvisor
We stayed at this property back in September last year for a night. It is in the perfect location for visiting the wineries and The Gardens. The room was very comfortable and the grounds are really nice. Breakfast in the restaurant in the morning was a little slow to come, but the food was good.
