Picture Perfect Living in the Heart of Wine Country

Located at the start of the Hunter Expressway, just 45 minutes from Newcastle, Huntlee is the first new town to be built in the Hunter Valley in more than 50 years. On completion, it will be around the same size of Singleton, with a population of approximately 20,000 in 7,500 homes surrounding a vibrant 200ha Town Centre.


Representing a total investment of $1.5billion, Huntlee is a fully master-planned community with a focus on education, employment and recreation.

Almost 1,000 lots have already been sold in Huntlee’s first residential village, Katherine’s Landing and Stage One of the town centre is seeing a flurry of activity. The first business to open was Huntlee ELC, a family-owned and operated early learning centre that can accommodate up to 164 pre-school aged children and also has OOSH services. It boasts three nursery rooms, two toddler rooms, two junior rooms and two school readiness rooms, as well as the latest educational resources, a spacious, well-equipped outdoor environment and large onsite carpark.

The highly-anticipated Huntlee Shopping Centre opened its doors in September 2020. At the heart of the state-of-the-art facility is a full line Coles supermarket, boasting an in-store bakery, gourmet delicatessen, and fresh seafood counter. The Centre also includes a Liquorland and 11 speciality stores, including Piggott’s Pharmacy, Huntlee Medical, Huntlee Dental, Lake and Valley Optical, Lotus Nails, Big Scissors Barber, Fibonacci Café, and Nargis Indian and Kebabs, with additional tenants coming soon. The centre will further expand its footprint in the coming years, delivering more retail and service offerings.

Opening just in time for Melbourne Cup Day 2020, the Huntlee Tavern delivers all the first-class facilities you would expect in a modern gastro-pub located in a prime location at the entrance to Wine Country Drive.

This year will see the rapid expansion of services and facilities in the town centre, with a wide range of projects in various stages of planning, including a service station, international fast food brands, health and fitness facilities and so much more.

On the other side of Wine Country Drive, 2020 also saw the opening of Huntlee’s second Display Home Village, which boasts 18 show-stopping new homes from 11 of the state’s leading builders.

In response to record demand for residential lots, 2020 saw the accelerated release of multiple stages. As a fully master-planned community with a total of 7500 lots available, Huntlee is unique in the region for its capability of constantly bringing new lots onto the market to match demand.

The sales team has been inundated with enquiries, many from people who live in Sydney and, thanks to the changes brought about by COVID, now realise they want more out of life. They are delighted to discover they can escape to an idyllic location such as Huntlee and have a house and land package starting from well under $500,000 for a four-bedroom, two-bathroom family home on a substantial site at the entrance to the world-famous Hunter Valley Wine Country.

Changes to work practices have made many realise the opportunities of working from home and the Huntlee Advantages package, valued at $16,500, is highly appealing. Every homesite in Huntlee comes with high-speed NBN fibre optic cable to the front of the property (i.e. that’s high speed, fibre optic cable to the premises, representing the best internet connection possible), as well as side and rear fencing, front landscaping, connection to underground natural gas and to Huntlee Water – meaning water restrictions are a thing of the past.

New residents are being attracted by all that is currently on offer and the exciting projects in the pipeline. They are also impressed by the strong community-building ethos evident throughout Huntlee. The masterplan is designed to encourage community interaction; Huntlee’s Community Liaison Officer facilitates a wide range of activities that regularly bring residents together to foster positive relationships and build a strong, healthy modern community.
