The Hunter Valley

Quick view of the famous Golden Guitar in Tamworth on our way to the Hunter Valley. Singleton is a large country town that is a great base for visiting the Hunter Valley Wine Region. We camp for 3 nights at the local showground. The Hunter Valley (surprisingly) only supplies 2 % of Australia’s wine output. Even so, there are numerous small wineries, far too many to visit, especially if tasting at each one. We visit a couple of our favourites, Tulloch and McGuigan, to top up on our supplies of port, rose and sparkling wine. Could not drive past the Hunter Valley Chocolate Company.

Take a look at the tree photo below – we came across a colony of fruit bats or flying foxes right in the centre of town.

One thought on “The Hunter Valley

  1. Hi it is good to see you are enjoying this beautiful country and especially the Hunter Valley. It is a great time of the year for a visit down South. We are off the Perth for my nephews wedding tomorrow and will be away for 6 nights then we are off down south to see family. We hope you are visiting a lot of great golf courses as well as wineries on the way. Continue to have a great time and we will see you when you get back.

    Cheers and safe driving
