Sydney, Blue Mountains & The Hunter Valley

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

This is a whole vacation 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 vacation 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.
