Hunter Valley Wine School is a two-hour certificate course looking at the history of winemaking, how wine is made, and why wine tastes the way it does… And it is not just Australian wine, there are international wines too.

All guest rooms feature timber cathedral ceilings; queen-size beds, individual heating and air-conditioning, balconies, a full size bathtub and shower, and the rooms open out onto the vineyard with views over the surrounding Brokenback Ranges. There are also suites that include double spa bath and kitchenette.

Offering three Horseback riding tours a day, this unique experience lasts 2 hours and travels along an old 1880’s stock route. There is one escort for every four riders. There are no cars, and the scenery overlooking the vineyards is simply breathtaking. Not a problem for ‘first timers’. There are horses ranging from Clydesdales to ponies to suit from beginner to experienced riders. Children are encouraged to ride and are well catered for.

Onsite facilities include a fleet of mountain bikes, tennis, a large pool with separate children’s wading pool, heated spa, walking and jogging tracks, and a baby-sitting service. Located just minutes away are hot-air ballooning, wildlife park, horse and carriage rides, tandem sky diving, arts and craft shops, two championship golf courses…. Not to mention over 100 wineries to visit!

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.

See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
