After departing Sydney, the first stop is at Walkabout Wildlife Park. This wildlife sanctuary is home to free roaming kangaroos, wallabies, emus, possums (some animals are in enclosures, like snakes, wombats, echidnas, tassie devil). Enjoy your morning tea and coffee, meet the ranger - hear about Aussie wildlife – an opportunity to have a hands-on experience with a koala and python.

From here continue to the Hunter Valley. You will arrive there just after 11.00am. You will travel through vineyards, visit boutique wineries, enjoy stunning scenery and taste the wine. The Hunter Valley is known for its long-aged Semillon (highly prized by wine writers from all over the world) and elegant Shiraz. But in fact, you can find more than 20 different wine styles there offered in over 150 cellar doors. The Hunter Valley is really a food and wine region, and what complements wine more than cheese and chocolate!

After your first visit to a local boutique winery, you will have free time for lunch and soak up the relaxed atmosphere of the Hunter. You are welcome to bring your own lunch or your guide can suggest a suitable cafe.

Following lunch, continue with visiting boutique award winning wineries and tasting the wine. We also stop to taste local cheese and chocolate. There is also time to visit a local distillery (working distillery so you can see the process and an equipment as well) or brewery, that have been an integral part of the Hunter Valley.

The tour returns to Sydney at approximately 7.00pm.
