Hunter Valley, New South Whales, Australia (map)
As we made our way back south after our Great Barrier Reef experience we enjoyed visiting some of the quaint little towns that line the coast. We have definitely noticed that Australia has made it possible for smaller town living to still exist, which for being a tourist makes the driving much more entertaining.
Besides the GBR, another must-do on my list for Australia was to visit some of the country’s wine regions. We headed inland to a region known as the Hunter Valley. Consisting of more than 120 vineyards, we were surprised to hear that the Hunter is only responsible for about 2% of Australian’s wine production. During our few days there we visited a handful of vineyards and along with the tasty wine we were spoiled with great weather and spectacular views.
