The calming beauty of the Hunter Valley is sure to keep you mesmerised with its rolling fields of gold, tangled vineyards, brightly woven farmlands and blushing pink sunsets.

With Hunter Valley Wine Tours you can spend the day sipping and swirling to your hearts content. Visit the finest vineyards and indulge in succulent regional cuisine, open cellar doors and find out all about the remarkable heritage of Australia’s most stunning wine region.

  • Stay in the Heart of the Hunter Valley

    With Hunter Valley Wine Tours you are sure to want to stay in the heart of the pristine countryside and with overnight accommodation at the Hunter Valley YHA you can do just that. The sweet and charming hostel has recently undergone a score of renovations and the welcome ambience is perfectly complemented by the shiny new bathrooms, the landscaped outdoor area and the hammocks swinging lazily in the shade beside the glittering blue pool.

  • Tucked off the Beaten Track

    Tucked away of the beaten track this is an idyllic spot for sparking up the barbeque, cracking a bottle of local wine and listening to the night fall and watching the stars come out. From large spacious dorms perfect for traveling groups to something a little smaller and more intimate you can enjoy spacious surroundings, soft clean bedding and steamy hot showers to refresh your senses.

  • Explore or Simply Retreat

    Hunter Valley Wine Tours will show you the best of the bottles, but there are also a ton of activities on offer especially when you spend the night with YHA. Borrow some bicycles and head into the hills for a romantic afternoon exploring, trek into the surrounding forests with a self-guided bush walk or tee off with a round of golf in the bliss of the beautiful countryside. Those who want to sit back and relax instead of heading out and about can simply spend the day at the YHA dipping in the cooling pool and reading a good book on the shaded wooden porch.

  • Local Nightlife Close By

    The local pub is only a stone’s throw away and boasts an incredible array of regional beers and wines ripe for the sampling. The pub also serves delicious pub grub and has a pool table and nightly entertainment. For a little more variety after dark you will find the glittering lights of Cessnock only 2km away. The whole atmosphere in the Hunter Valley is about being laid back and dabbling in the simple, finer things in life and when you choose the YHA you get just that.
