Hunter Valley Wine Country
The Hunter Valley is situated an easy 2 hour drive from Sydney straight up the M1 and a short trip down the Hunter Expressway. If you’re coming from Newcastle or Newcastle Airport it is simply straight down the Hunter Expressway for just 40 minutes.
The Hunter Valley is a wonderland of internationally acclaimed wine and sensational food predominantly made from local ingredients. But that is not all it has to offer, it is also a destination for world class large open air concerts, weddings, conferences, family holidays, golf groups, festivals and more! It is a natural playground for the young and old.

GOLF TO THE MAX
Grip it and rip it… there are no limits to what you can do for your next golf group getaway; you won’t experience the flexibility of service like this anywhere else! Staying in 4 star accommodation located in the CBD just 10 minutes from the Hunter Valley’s wineries and golf courses also puts you in close proximity to Cessnock Leagues Club and Vincent St Kitchen. Courtesy bus transfers are available as well as the energetic service and attention Kieran can provide. You will want to make this an annual trip!
Picture this… you arrive for check in at Wine Country Motor Inn at 3-4pm on Friday afternoon, you quickly get the registration process over with and dump your bags. Across the small carpark is Cessnock Leagues Club with its sports bar, VIP lounge and live entertainment. Sport on the big screen and country hospitality size meals that would rival any bistro. You decide to blow the froth off a few whilst the rest of your group arrive, have a punt, laugh and enjoy a meal. The next morning after a continental buffet breakfast, a courtesy bus transfer takes you to one of the elite golf courses the Hunter Valley has to offer. After golf the toughest choice you’ll have to make is whether or not you would prefer to come back and watch the races for the afternoon in the state-of-the-art tab or indulge in a winery experience. Your group convenes together for dinner and you are taken by courtesy bus to Vincent St Kitchen and Bar for a unique dining experience focusing on local produce and wines. Did you know they have a hatted Chef? The next morning it is another round of golf and then home.
