I will get back with part 2 of my Brisbane & Gold Coast Trip on the next post ! For now, let me bring you to my short escape one-day trip to Hunter Valley only 2 hours away from Sydney City!
Outfit of the Day
Blouse – Beesknees
Shorts – Supre
Blazer – Beesknees
Oxford Shoes – F21
Shawl – Korea
I went over with Unimates clique , trip starts early at 9am sharp and ended approximately on 8pm. Yes, I know how very productive is that?! ( All cost included I paid only $46! Best deal ever 😀 !)
Here’s our itenary for the day trip :
Hunter Valley Cheese Company – Cheese Tasting
McGuigans Winery – Wine Tasting
McWilliams Mount Pleasant Wines – Winery Tour
Gardens Village – Boutique shops and restaurants with landscaped gardens for a picnic lunch
Hunter Valley Garden – Ten-themed gardens to be explored ( MY FAVOURITE!!)
Mount View – capture the entire vast view of Hunter Valley
Wollombi Valley – Antique shops, historical colonial buildings and other attractions
First up, Cheese Tasting. We went over to cheese company and its so interesting to see their cheese making factory! Anyway, they offered 5 types of different types of cheese that I virtually never ate or tasted before. Its freshly produced and there’s also water and crackers offered ( as its bit too salty if you eat them alone like that)
After that we have a short lunch break and I ordered a Pasta of the Day from one of the cafeteria, and boy was it the BEST PASTA I HAVE EVER HAD!! yum!
Wine Tasting and Winery Tour
As most of you know, Hunter Valley is quite well-known for their winery production. If we were to go there during summer season , we will have the privilege to see the whole grape ripe process and everything. Yes, the person in charge basically explained on how the grapes were planted mainly during summer but definitely not winter season. Oh well, we still get to taste those ah-mazing wine and get an indoor factory tour!
Next, we went over to Hunter Valley Garden. My favourite part.They have a whole lot of garden themes (over 10) and Story Book theme is the most unique! Its easily Australia’s biggest and most beautiful garden ever! Just entering the Storybook garden is an experience in itself – through a giant storybook that is being read by topiary giraffes!
Story Book Garden
Everywhere else – other various theme in the garden
Overall, its a fulfilling and very productive trip with the whole unimates clique (I went over together with 27 other people 🙂 )
Stay tuned till the next update ❤
