HUNTER VALLEY HIGHLIGHTS & WILDLIFE TOUR
WINE, CHEESE, CHOCOLATE, DISTILLERY & ANIMALS
Full day (approx 10 hours) departing from Sydney
The most diverse of all our Hunter Valley Tours. For those who would like the day not to be entirely focused on the wineries. On this tour you feel the sense of fitting so much into the day.
Highlights and Inclusions
Walkabout Wildlife Park
Walkabout is a great wildlife park situated about halfway to the Hunter Valley from Sydney in Calga. The Park is not your typical park where mass tourism is common place. What makes Walkabout so unique is that a large number of the animals are roaming free throughout the natural bush setting. This includes Kangaroos, Emus and a large variety of Wallaby species. The park is also home to cute Koalas, Wombats, Tasmanian Devils and many other interesting fury friends.
Visit great boutique wineries for tastings
The Hunter Valley is home to many superb boutique wineries. On this Hunter Valley tour will make sure you get to visit a selection of the best wineries in the region. On arrival their passionate staff will take you through a tasting of their amazing wines. Most of the boutiques wineries we visit on this Hunter Valley wine tour you can only find their wines by visiting their wineries in the Hunter Valley.
Local Cheese & Chocolate Tastings
Hunter Valley tours are not just about the wine. The area is home to some other great local produce and on this tour we will enjoy tasting local cheeses at either the Hunter Valley Cheese Company, Binoirie Diary or the Smelly Cheese Shop. With the Chocolate it’s all about visiting the Hunter Valley Chocolate Company and indulging in some of their great chocolates and fudges. We also have suitable storage on the bus to keep any items purchased cool on the journey home.
Local brewery or distillery
The Hunter Valley is home to a number of breweries that all hit the spot at the end of a hard day wine tasting. Our personal favourite is the Hunter Beer Co at Potters Brewery. Work your way through the many craft beers they have available for tastings.
The Hunter Valley Vodka Distillery is a certified organic distillery right in the heart of the Hunter Valley. Home to great Vodka, Liqueurs and Schnapps. This is always a popular way to end the day before we make the journey home.

My girlfriends and I booked cloud 9 tours in the hunter last minute and it was catered to us perfectly for our first time to the hunter- we booked a private tour and it was awesome. James was great fun and did so much to make sure our experience was great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!
Reviewed 12th May 2016 "A Perfect Day"
This is my second time using cloud 9 tours in the hunter, last time we had a hens weekend, this time for my birthday with a group of 11 friends, I could not recommend them enough! On this tour we selected some wineries ourselves that we wanted to revisit and asked them to recommend the rest and it was perfect!!...
I'd also like to say a special thank you to Sasha our beautiful tour guide who was amazing and made our day flow smoothly so we didn't miss out on any wine time and weren't in a rush to get to the next winery which made the day stress free and full of laughter!
Reviewed 7th May 2016 "Fantastic Trip to the Hunter Valley"
Really fantastic trip through the Hunter Valley with Sasha; she absolutely helped name the trip what it was. Really laid back, a lot of knowledge about the area, kept us on track without being stressed. Would highly recommend. 10 out of 10 would visit again.
