The Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s best known wine regions. Located north of Sydney in New South Wales, the region has played a pivotal role in the history of Australian wine as one of the first wine regions planted in the early 19th century. Hunter Valley Semillon is widely considered the iconic wine of the region but the Hunter produces wine from a variety of grapes including Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Verdelho. It is home to numerous wineries, including world-renowned brands and family-run boutique operations.

Itinerary

Day 1Newcastle to the Hunter Valley

Saturday
Today’s ride : 10 am departure | 117km / 72.7 miles – 1,200m / 3,937 feet

We will greet you in Newcastle at 9am and help you put your bikes together before we depart for day 1 of the tour, a 117km ride out to the Hunter Valley. The roads will be a little busier in Newcastle, the largest coal exporting harbour in the world. But it won’t be long until we are on the outer edges of the city, heading into the stunning Hunter Valley.

Our accommodation will be a welcome sight as we roll into the valley after climbing 1,200mtrs on our first day. Dinner will be at our accommodation tonight as we expect to get into town late in the afternoon.

Day 2Pokolbin Loop

Sunday
Today’s ride : 8am departure | 102km / 63.4 miles – 870m / 2,854 feet

After a busy traffic start to the day yesterday, today will be the exact opposite. We are taking in some of the quietest and picturesque roads in the region. The rolling hills will take us past many of the local wineries as we make our way through the lush bushland.

We plan to have you back at your accommodation in time to have a shower before we head out for lunch at the Hunter Valley Gardens. This are a ‘must see’ for anyone who visits the Hunter Valley! You’ll have plenty of time after lunch to go exploring through these amazing gardens. Make sure you wear comfy shoes for walking.

You’ll then have the rest of the afternoon to relax before enjoying dinner at one of the many beautiful restaurants in the valley.

Day 3 Singleton Loop

Monday
Today’s ride : 8am departure | 115km / 71.4 miles – 950m / 3,116 feet

Today we head west from our accommodation, before we make a right turn and head north towards Singleton, which is located on the banks of the Hunter River. The Hunter River weaves its way through the Hunter Valley, rising from the Liverpool Range and ending up in the Tasman Sea at Newcastle.

More quiet roads lay ahead as we ride on many roads only used by the local farmers and wineries. Once again, we will be passing many wineries on our ride today. It’s a shame we can’t stop at all of them!

Tonight we head out to a beautiful winery for a private wine tasting and dinner. This will be a real treat.

Day 4Lake Macquarie and return

Tuesday
Today’s ride : 8am departure | 129km / 80 miles – 1,330m / 4,363 feet

Following a wonderful few days in the Hunter Valley, today we head south-east towards the coast. We’ll stop on the banks of Lake Macquarie to enjoy a well earned lunch before the second half of the ride back to the valley.

Lake Macquarie is Australia’s largest coastal salt water lake and covers an area of 110 square kilometres (42.5 sq mi). It is twice as large as Sydney Harbour and is one of the largest salt water lagoons in the Southern Hemisphere. Definitely worth the ride to have a look!

The legs might be feeling a little tired after four days on the bike so we’ll enjoy a nice relaxing dinner in another amazing restaurant.

Day 5Northern Loop

Wednesday
Today’s Ride : 8.00am departure | 127km / 78.9 miles – 1,400m / 4,593 feet

Our final day on the bike will be another challenging day in the hills with 1,400mtrs of climbing ahead. We will head to our furtherest point north today as we reach Gresford, before turning for home. Once again, many of these roads will not have been seen by many, other than the farmers who work the lands. A truly unique opportunity to explore a part of Australia that people rarely get the chance to see.

We will spend our final night in the Hunter Valley at a magical winery, enjoying another spectacular meal, celebrating an awesome time together.

Day 6Check-out

Thursday

It’s time to say farewell and head to the airport or perhaps get a few cheeky kilometers in the legs for those that are keen for an early spin before checking out. We can arrange your transfer back to Newcastle Airport.

We are more than happy to help you with any further travel plans.

You’ll head home with amazing memories of your time cycling around this beautiful region.
