Hunter Valley Private Tour via Wollombi Village

It’s your day, your way in the Hunter Valley, we take the scenic route winding north through national parks, towns and villages and stunning farmland, most notably, the charming heritage village of Wollombi.

Once we reach the wine growing region of the Hunter Valley, we have a wealth of options. Including a large selection of both vintners and producers of olives, cheeses, and other delicacies.

An optional stop at Brooklyn for breakfast or morning tea.

A quaint river village which feels a million miles from Sydney. Here you can feel the sense of community that infuses all the settlements of the Hawkesbury River.  Head out of Sydney early enough to stop for breakfast or morning tea.

An optional stop at the Australian Walkabout Wildlife Park

This wildlife santuary is best visited as soon as it opens for the day at 9am.  The animals are active then, and the tourists few.  Not a zoo, but a wildlife sanctuary, here koalas, kangaroos, emus, and other native wildlife freely roam the 80-hectare (198-acre) park which is maintained as native habitat. If you book ahead, we can arrange a private koala encounter.

The scenic drive through the Old Northern Road to Wollombi village.

Rather than sticking with the main highway to the Hunter Valley we can turn onto an under-utilised tourist drive which begins north of the Hawkesbury River. The road passes through national parks, past small farms, and through several towns and villages. Mostly notably, Wollombi – a heritage town with a well-preserved 19th century streetscape, lined with boutiques, cafes, and, of course, a pub.

At the Hunter Valley

Mount View Drive and Wineries

Mount View Road offeres a panorama of the Hunter Valley below. Visit Carillion Wines or Bria Ridge Wines, perhaps even dine at Bistro Molines.

Lunch – Boutique Restaurants, Fine Dining, Pizza Stops or Pub Lunches.

When you are ready for lunch, the Hunter Valley supplies a wealth of options. Favourites include Bistro Molines, Café Enzo.  A quick option may be gourmet woodfired pizza and salads prepared while you taste the Brokenwood, Hope, Baume at Ben Ean or Bimbadgen wines.  For a pub lunch we recomend,  Harrigans or Ironbark Hill.  Cheese tasting and chicory boards which are available at various wineries too.

The afternoon -Wineries and chocolate shop

With our remaining time we’ll fit in more wineries and, perhaps a distillery, or a brewery to round out our day. Or for those without a sweet tooth – perhaps some locally made chocolates or the Sabor Dessert Bar are more your speed.

Return Sydney – At a time that suits.

When the wineries and most specialty shops at close, it’s time to sit back, relax, and keep your eye out for wild kangaroos in the paddocks and vineyards as we make our way back to Sydney.
