The Hunter Valley truly is a place for those who enjoy the finer things in life. Sample some top-shelf spirits at the Hunter Distillery or head to one of the areas of many wineries – nearby Brokenwood Wines, Piggs Peake Winery and Tyrrell’s Wines are our favourites – to taste the local wine. Try some amazing local produce including mayonnaise, vineyard and tapenade at Pukara Estate or simply head to a cosy pub like Goldfish Hunter Valley Restaurant, Circa 1876 and Harrigan’s Irish Pub for a hearty meal.
Practice your swing at the hotel’s award-winning, 18-hole golf course designed by Greg Norman where you’ll enjoy 25% off green fees once throughout your stay. If you’d rather unwind, head to the blissful Spa at Château Élan Hunter Valley and enjoy AU$25 each to spend on rejuvenating treatments of 60 minutes or more.
Nature lovers might also want to arrange an early morning hot-air balloon ride, go horse riding or explore one of the area’s many walking or cycling trails.
But first, coffee: When you need a break from a hearty red or citrus-filled white, head to Pokolbin's Cafe Enzo for some of the best brew in the valley. Striking sandstone and rustic wooden interiors are complemented by a charming outdoor courtyard that boasts the ideal setting to enjoy a creamy cappucino in the warm sunshine.
