Peaceful scenery and proximity to Sydney are about all the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley regions have in common. Both regions are amazing destinations in their own right and complement each other for a comprehensive New South Wales itinerary. The rocky escarpments of the Blue Mountains are breathtaking while the gentle rolling hills and vineyards of the Hunter Valley offer a chance to enjoy some of the state’s best food and wine.
The Hunter Valley is synonymous with fine food and wine, as well as a standout golf and spa destination. There are over 150 wineries here, with Semillons, chardonnays and shirazes being of particular note. Inspired by the quality of the fertile region’s produce, many top chefs have made the Hunter Valley home and as a result, there are a huge number of fabulous restaurants and first-rate cooking schools.
A holiday to the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley can be easily combined, or independently incorporated into any Australian holiday itinerary.
