Just two hours north of Sydney, the Hunter Valley was discovered by Europeans in 1797. Now considered Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley has been known for its wine for a long time.
Only recently has there been diversity into other produce, such as gourmet foods or art. The vineyard at Mistletoe Wines has been extended to include an art gallery and sculpture garden. While Brokenwood Wines and the Small Winemakers Centre are located close to Hunter Valley Gardens, Hunter Valley Cheesemaking Factory and Hunter Valley Chocolate Company, to allow visitors optional extras when they come to taste the wines.
As well as lovely landscapes, the Hunter Valley has some attractions to amuse the family. These include the historic Maitland Gaol at Singleton which was used for 150 years and closed as a prison in 1998. The Hunter Valley Zoo may keep you busy for a time, or your kids may enjoy a visit to the interesting Australian Army Infantry Museum, also at Singleton. The history covered by the AAIM includes the early colonial army and the Diggers of recent years.
