Hunter Valley Tours from Sydney

The Hunter Valley is the oldest and one of Australia’s best known wine regions and is only a two-hour drive from Sydney.  Hunter Valley Tours from Sydney is an ideal way to visit the wine country. Sit back and relax, take in the sights and enjoy the wine tasting, without the worry of driving. The first vines were planted in the Hunter Valley in the early 1820s, and the area now produces some of the best wines in the world.

McGuigan wines is one of Australia’s largest wineries. The McGuigan family has been in the wine industry for four generations. Also at the McGuigan’s estate is the Hunter Valley Cheese Company where you can sample a selection of  cheeses.

Dr Jurds Jungle Juice

Wollombi is a small historic town in the Lower Hunter Valley. Here you will find the Wollombi Tavern which is home to Dr Jurds Jungle Juice. Dr Jurds Jungle Juice was concocted by Mel Jurd in the late fifties, after a friend told him of his old bush remedy for an upset stomach. Which consisted of a double nip of port and a nip of brandy. He also heard similar stories by soldiers who served in the tropics during World War 2. They called the remedy Jungle Juice.

Bluetongue Brewery

  1. It sounds absolutely fabulous and a great way to spend a day although it sounds as though it could be hard to limit it to a day trip, a few days sound like the way to go.

    • Hi Jenny
      With so much to see at the Hunter Valley staying for a few days would be perfect. However, if you are only visiting for the day, a one day coach tour is perfect. It gives you a chance to sample the wines without the worry of driving.

  2. So love the Hunter Valley – havent been there in such a long time 😉

    Would love to do a Tour to see all of the Hunter Valley. The one Day tour from Sydney sounds like the way to go – wine tasting, food, history, DVD, cheese, beer tasting….perfect way to have a perfect day!

    Cheers
