Pulling into the picturesque winery and vineyard, our group knew we would be enjoying a nice relaxing time. We unpacked and made ourselves comfy in the roomy accommodation. We were greeted by some friendly horses and kangaroos!
That night we shared some laughs and got to know one and other over a relaxed meal at the local club.
The next day we enjoyed a leisurely drive, taking in many of the Hunter region’s beautiful wineries. Later in the day we enjoyed lunch at one of the wineries.
The next day we ventured over to the Hunter Valley Gardens. Here we took in the Christmas atmosphere and made our way around the many boutique shops, including a Christmas shop, packed to the roof with Christmas decorations!
That evening we headed back to make our way through the garden light displays! We were left speechless with the amazing lights and Christmas displays. It was such an amazing experience with everyone in the group making a deal to be back next year!
For our last full day in the Hunter we did a day trip to historic Morpeth. We enjoyed brunch in the old rum holding building overlooking the river. We then visited the museum followed by Christmas shopping in the most amazing Christmas shop any of us had ever seen!
All good things come to an end so on the last day we made our way home to our loved ones, vowing we will return to the Hunter next Christmas!
