Research: Hunter Valley & Newcastle

– Hunter Valley is the wine region in Australia. 

– Most wineries offer free tastings and there are over 140 to choose from. 

– The next major and second largest city on the East Coast in Newcastle. However there are a few towns that we could stop off at along the way such as Gosford, Terrigal for beaches or Lake Macquarie for one of the largest lakes. 

– Enjoy some window shopping along the ‘funky’ streets of Darby St. 

– Christ Church Cathedral is what dominates the skyline. Has a stained glass windows designed by Edward Burne Jones and William Morris. 

– Lock Up. It used to be a prison but now is home to artists and had a contemporary art gallery within. 

– Newcastle Museum. Free entry. Contains a fun presentation of the history of the city.
