A marvellous way to experience Australia’s oldest wine region is on tours of the vineyards, wineries and cellar doors. You’ll learn more about the Hunter Valley’s unique terroir, receive insights into wine making and wine appreciation, and taste some of the world’s best wines.
Tours in this region are far-reaching and diverse, offering memorable experiences and compelling perspectives. From individual to group bookings, horseback to classic cars to luxury buses, each tour offers its own insight. Whatever your taste or preference, you’ll find the tour to suit your needs.
Tours of wineries can be booked directly with cellar doors or with an organised tour. Many wineries operate a cellar door policy, which allows visitors to simply turn up and taste and buy their wines. For those who enjoy the freedom of doing their own thing, this is a great option.
Arranging a tour directly with the winery means that you will usually have to find your own way there, but it does offer the freedom of choosing where you want to visit. Alternatively, a tour through an organised group tour will provide transport to wineries and expert commentary. Tour guides also run regular trips from Sydney, Newcastle and other centres to this beautiful region.
