Great day trip from Sydney, just about 2 hours drive away from the city. Winery hosts were friendly and we got to try lots of wine. Highly recommended for wine lovers!

Everything is over commercialised and the cellar doors are too focused on hitting their KPI's than explaining what you want to know about wine, histories and techniques.

Amazing wine country, many different options in wineries. Hire a car and do it your self, or take friends in a bus. Many accommodation options.

Many many vineyards offering free wine tasting. There's cheese, chocolate and jam factories within the estate too. Kangaroos can be spotted in the grassland. And one was "waiting" for us in the centre of the road when we drove uphill and hopped away gracefully as...More

Hi, It's my 1st time in Australia and next month I will be driving from Sydney to Coffs Harbour where I will spend the night. Do you think I have enough time to visit part of the Hunter Valley, or have lunch there before continuing my journey to Coffs Harbour? Or does it worth spending only a full day or a week-end?
