Hunter Valley Wine Yards in Australia

Wineyards of Hunter Valley

Wineyards of Hunter Valley

Initially, we scheduled just 3 days in Sydney. However, a good advice of a friend from Australia was hunter valley, with the quote “if you have enough time”. Well, we didn’t have but we created. This cost us the famous Ayers Rock of Australia, but everything has a price right?

We woke up at a perfectly bright October morning once more in Sydney. Our tour guide and transportation today was from AEA Luxury Tours. It was a two hours drive from Sydney, but took a bit longer with a stopover at Australian Reptile Park, which you can read from my previous post.

Hunter Valley is a very wide valley of wine area, with which there are hundreds of wine yards to visit and some local stores to buy local or international food, art work, natural pharmacy, clothes and stationary.

Yummy stores

Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese Shop is a yummy store

Our first stop at the valley was to Cellar Door to taste some cheese and wine, with a lovely view of the valley. Pity that, it is impossible to carry the cheese, all the way back home, but we bought some coconut pastes and oils, with different kind of nuts and some crackers with various flavors from Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese Shop.

The clouds and the grape fields, the blue sky and already a bit drunk, we left the area for our next stop for lunch.

I want to write another post about Bimbadgen Estate, where we had a very nice lunch, but for know, let’s go on with the afternoon.

Our final stop of the day was at Hunter Valley Gardens shopping village where there were many fine art shops, a bookshop, a chocolate shop, many restaurants and cafes and a pharmacy. All worth to visit.

Shouldn't be missed
