This journey is easily combined with a stay in Sydney or any of our other Australian itineraries.


Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Sydney to the Hunter Valley

At Sydney Central station, you'll board the express train to the Hunter Valley. Heading north from Sydney, you'll enjoy the comfort of a pre-reserved carriage as New South Wales countryside whips past your window for the next three hours. You'll cross the Hawkesbury River and pass working oyster farms and beds before arriving into Singleton Railway Station by lunchtime. An included transfer sees you to the Hunter Valley Resort, a country lodge set among 70 secluded acres of gardens and vineyards and your accommodation for the next two nights. This afternoon, enjoy a unique Wine Theatre experience, combining a fascinating visual presentation with a wine tutorial, teaching you how to taste front palate sweetness, acidity, back palate tannins, and more. Tonight, you might choose to dine at Matilda Bay Brewhouse Hunter Valley Resort, featuring a menu of regional and Italian cuisine.

There are plenty of other activities on offer, including electric bike hire, tennis, swimming, Segway back country tours to see Kangaroos and horseback riding. Take a stroll out of the resort and you'll come across five winery Cellar Doors and a host of local restaurants – perfect for a leisurely lunch.
