The New South Wales region

The Hunter Valley Region of New South Wales is renowned for good quality wines, gourmet restaurants and local produce. Since the first vine was planted in the 1820s the area is now the home of many well known brands. Many vineyards offer wine tasting tours; to get an overall view of the area the best way is from one of the many look out points or take an early morning balloon ride. Some vineyards also hold events such as operas, light entertainment with well known singer and craft fares. The Hunter Valley Gardens are well worth visiting especially at Christmas with thousands of festive lights and themes . The Annex is within easy reach of Hope Estate events; drop off/pick for 4 persons by arrangement.

The Barrington Tops NP, part of Australia World Heritage Area, offers guided tours, cabins within the Park as well as camping & caravan sites. There are many other Parks in the Region that are well worth visiting.

Newcastle was the second European settlement and Nobby's Head was noticed by Captain Cook in 1770. The lighthouse is well worth a visit as are many historical buildings. Newcastle is the main port for exporting coal from the Hunter Valley Region. It is fast becoming a centre for arts in the area with entertainers coming from around the world.

Further to the north is the area of Scone which has been dubbed the horse racing area of Australia. Here the visitor can see vast studs owned by some of the best names in racing. Beyond Scone is the town of Tamworth known worldwide for its Country Music Festival held for a week in January.

Hunter Valley

Stanhope is in an ideal location to visit the vineyards, many of them offering wine tasting tours and excellent food. Wyndham Estate established in 1828, the birthplace of Australian Shiraz, is 15 minutes away. There are a couple of boutique vineyards within 10 minutes open on certain days. Historic Morpeth, once a large inland river port, with its wide street, shops and excellent museum charting the history of the area will give the visitor an idea of a 1800s settlement. The 60 acre Hunter Valley Gardens with 10 individual themed gardens, one of which is a story book theme for children, is a must for gardeners. Various events are held throughout the year culminating in the spectacular Christmas Light show.

North of Newcastle is Stockton (50 minutes) & the 35km Stockton Bight stretching from Newcastle to Anna Bay. Another good day out is the One Mile Beach near Hawks Nest and Tea Gardens.

The former coal mining town of Maitland (40 minutes) has an excellent park with 3 swimming pools, children's bike track and play area. The town hosts a 2 day Food, Wine and Music Festival in March and a Coffee Chocolate & Fine Food Festival in August.

The nearest town of Branxton (15 minutes) has a supermarket, excellent butcher, cafes, pharmacy, hardware and bottle shop selling beer and local wine. The Royal Federal Hotel offers good meals at competitive prices.

Both Maitland and Singleton (30 minutes) have hospitals offering 24hr coverage.
