About the Hunter

The Hunter region includes the towns, vineyards and national parks of the Hunter Valley, the Upper Hunter and Barrington Tops. If you appreciate good food and wine, you'll enjoy the Hunter region, where you can join a winery tour, or a cooking school, and sample wines from boutique winemakers and true “blue bloods” of the industry.

There are plenty of other things to see and do in the Hunter, including getting pampered at a day spa or indulging in a spa retreat, teeing off from a championship golf course or taking a hot-air balloon ride over the vineyards. Just follow the The Legendary Pacific Coast touring route to uncover the best of the region.

Nature lovers will also enjoy the region. Barrington Tops National Park is a World Heritage-listed natural wonder. The Chichester State Forest, Copeland Conservation Area, Lake St Clair and Lake Liddell are all well worth a visit, too. Choose your own adventure, including easy bushwalking, serious hiking or camping out, surrounded by beech forests and snow gum woodlands.
