Hunter Valley Explorer Self Guided Cycle
The Hunter Valley is where wine-making started in Australia and remains one of the most important wine-producing areas in the country. It is also a fantastic area to explore at handlebar level. In 1832, armed with 20,000 cuttings from Spain and France, James Busby established the first vineyards in Australia. Now, the region is famous for its Semillon and Shiraz. It’s also home to some great Chardonnays, Cabernet Sauvignon and Verdelho's. On this self-guided cycle we’ll take you on a journey around the Hunter Valley to experience some of the best it has to offer.
