Events in the Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley is the perfect place for a getaway, offering a taste of the good life. Australia's most visited wine region is home to 150 top-class wineries, vineyards and cellar doors; 65 restaurants and a range of fantastic accommodation options.

The Hunter area is also renowned for hosting events year-round.

The month-long event showcases the region’s wine and food culture with a series of themed activities throughout June.
