Hunter Valley Heritage Cairn
As the oldest commercial wine region in Australia, it's no surprise Hunter Valley Wine Country is filled with historical landmarks. Honouring the importance and significance of our region, the recently launched Hunter Valley Heritage Cairn Trail follows those landmarks which have influenced the course of, or made a significant contribution to, the Hunter Valley Wine Industry and have been awarded Heritage Cairns to date.
There's never been a better time to explore the great outdoors and embark on a self-drive trail amongst the vineyards. While we have plenty of trails for you to explore, discover something new and visit some of our iconic touchstones. Whether you're a history enthusiast, have an interest in heritage or just looking for an unexpected adventure, the Hunter Valley's Heritage Cairn Trail is one to add to the bucket list.
