Sydney, Blue Mountains & The Hunter Valley

Australia’s premier city…and prime wine-making region

This is a whole holiday in itself. The sights, nightlife, Opera House and harbour of Sydney. Followed by the sandstone cliffs, eucalyptus-cloaked slopes and cascading waterfalls of the Blue Mountains. Then a relaxed, wine-centric dawdle though the cool green of the Hunter Valley.

Don’t expect to find pools full of marine life, craggy outlines or crashing waves at The Rocks – it’s actually the locals’ name for the historic heart of Australia’s oldest and largest city. What you can expect is a complete array of traditional architecture, chic restaurants, cafés, bistros, bars and a sizzling nightlife. The day life is pretty good too, with sights like one of the world’s most breath-taking harbours, a bridge that just begs you to climb it, an iconic Opera House and a ferry that takes you to the seaside resort of Manly.

And just 90 minutes north of Sydney is a completely different scene. World Heritage-listed landscapes covered in characterful eucalyptus trees. Welcome to the Blue Mountains. You’ll need a good camera here – to capture endless sandstone cliffs, gorges, hidden canyons and sparkling waterfalls.

Then your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Australia takes another turn…into the Hunter Valley, the world-renowned leader of Australia’s wine making regions. Take a tour and choose to stop at any of 120 different wineries with a cellar door. Sample the great vintages, the crisp Semillons and full-bodied Shirazes. Surprise your palate with little known labels and indulge it with the great names.

  • Sadly, we never got to go on our trip to Canada in June, due to Covid 19. However, I'm giving a 5 star review because we received such excellent service from Gemma. She itook on board all I asked for and arranged a fantastic tinerary. She was always prompt and professional both in planning the holiday and during the very circumstances of Covid. We would not hesitate to come back to The Ultimate Travel Company.
