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.
