An unbeatable mix of food, wine and stunning scenery. From Sydney, drive two hours north to the Hunter Valley for your overnight stay. The oldest and arguably best known of Australia’s wine regions, Hunter Valley produces only one in twenty bottles of Australian wine. Spend an afternoon wine tasting, relaxing in a spa or out on a golf course! Continue to the Blue Mountains via Brisbane Water and Wollemi National Parks. The Blue Mountains are aptly named after the blue mist that rises from the covering forests of eucalyptus. This area is ideal for bushwalking, country drives and viewing the regional attractions of the Three Sisters, Jenolan Caves and the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens.
