About the Hunter
The Hunter includes the towns, vineyards and national parks of the Hunter Valley, the Upper Hunter and Barrington Tops. If you enjoy good food and wine, you'll enjoy the Hunter where you can join a winery tour, a cooking school, and sample wines from boutique winemakers to the "bluebloods" of the industry.
Others things to do include pampering at a day spa or spa retreat, teeing off from a championship golf course or taking a hot-air balloon ride over the vineyards. Just follow the Legendary Pacific Coast touring route to uncover the best of the region.
Nearby Barrington Tops National Park is a World Heritage natural wonder. Choose your own adventure such as easy bushwalking, serious hiking or camping out, surrounded by beech forests and snow gum woodlands.
