A day of local culture and local wines awaits us. Leaving Sydney we head north over one of Australia’s biggest icons: The Sydney Harbour Bridge. From the bridge you get stunning views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House. Phew! Enough about Sydney already!
As we reach the point where city becomes country we drive into the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and the second oldest national park in Sydney. How old? Ask your guide. The park is surrounded by beautiful beaches and coves mudflats and mangroves. The views are spectacular. It's also rich in Aboriginal History. You will spend approximately 1 hour 15 minutes exploring the National Park. You'll see ancient rock carvings and learn all about Australian native animals. Kangaroos might even make an appearance or two.
We enter the Hunter Valley via Wollombi and our first stop is appropriately the picturesque Wollombi Wines Vineyard. It is here we have our lunch, which is included. We then taste boutique wines from Mt View Estate which is set against the backdrop of the Mount View Mountain range. Our final winery for the day is Savannah Estate.
After a day of culture and wine tasting we point the bus south and cruise back to Sydney arriving at approximately 6:30pm.
