Love Local! And Discover Hunter Valley

In the past 18 months, we have seen just how much uncertainty COVID-19 has caused when it comes to travel. International travel is no longer a viable option, and just as borders between certain Australian states were opening to welcome interstate travellers, others were closed to combat new clusters. As a result, with some interstate travel halted, locals have taken the opportunity to explore their own backyards – providing much-needed relief for many regional areas such as Hunter Valley Wine Country, where the wine, food and hospitality industries have been among the worst affected by the ongoing lockdowns. These businesses are in dire need of your support.


For those considered local, that is, the residents of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens and others making up this backyard community, now is the time to discover and explore what’s available in your own backyard – with a glass of Semillon or Shiraz in hand!

If you are seeking a last-minute staycation, or for those needing a short break and a change of scenery, the Hunter Valley is a wonderful place to visit at any time of the year, but Winter has that special magical something – mountain and vineyard landscapes with hues of brown and red, cooler days and nights in front of warm, open fires, cosy restaurants and cafes serving up hearty dishes, welcoming cellar doors and of course the wine. What could be better?

We look forward to seeing you soon in Hunter Valley Wine Country!



For those who love the sweeter things in life, there’s no better place to treat yourself than at the Hunter’s sweet spot, Sabor Dessert Bar. And we have a treat for you! Mention "INTOUCH WITH SABOR" when ordering and get 15% off your total bill.
