The beautiful Hunter Valley

The beautiful Hunter Valley

Hello all

Geoff and I woke up just before dawn today. Excitement got the better of us and once it was 5 am we could not rest any longer. Exhilaration about our week’s holiday and the preparation yesterday in packing up the car and getting ready for our departure this morning, was too much.

We will be off around 8.30 am this morning to travel to a region in Australia famous for its wine, called The Hunter Valley. You have all heard of Sydney right? For all of my overseas readers, this area is in the foothills of the mountains about three hours drive north-west of Sydney and about an eight-hour drive south from Brisbane in Queensland.

We plan to drive south for about five hours and stay overnight in a highland town called Armidale. It is cold country, and as we are photography buffs,  we are hoping to find there a good show of autumn leaves.

Oh, how I love the thrill of a small adventure! We will not be staying in our caravan either. No, we are staying in a five-star resort with our Wyndham Holiday Credits, so we are looking forward to some luxury for a change.

Therefore folks, this post is coming to you early in the morning because I have more time than planned and I thought “Why not write a little post so you will know what is happening?

Come along on the journey with us as we travel the New England Highway down the centre of New South Wales to the beautiful Hunter Valley which is set amidst many vineyards and speciality shops.

All aboard this train … going south!
