Local Knowledge:

Plan your cellar door and dining carefully to ensure maximum tasting time, rather than driving aimlessly through the region.

Getting there:

Air:  If you’re travelling in style, Cessnock Airport is accessible by private charter or helicopter, delivering you in style into the heart of the region.  For domestic flights, Newcastle Airport is approximately 1 hour drive to Hunter Valley Wine Country.

Car: The region is easily accessible, just 1 hour from Newcastle and 2 hours from Sydney.

Taxi: You’ll want to sample the local wines, but this is a rural area and distances between venues can be deceiving and therefore not the most cost effective means of transport.
