New South Wales Australia Accommodation and Information

Accommodation

For rural beauty and enchanting wilderness, the Upper Hunter is a popular holiday escape and a wonderful region in NSW to explore. Treat your taste buds to delectable food and wine, including local handmade cheeses and olive oils pressed from fresh local fruit.

Begin your discovery of this beautiful region and its vineyards, thoroughbred race horses, meandering rivers and national parks and reserves at Muswellbrook, a rural town three hours’ drive north of Sydney. Explore the colonial architecture on the Muswellbrook Heritage Walk.

On scenic drives visit cellar doors, such as Small Forest and Two Rivers Wines at Denman, 25 minutes’ drive southwest of Muswellbrook. James Estate Wines is at Baerami, near Sandy Hollow. Then visit Merriwa, which celebrates its agricultural history with the Rosto Merriwa Festival of Fleeces. North of Muswellbrook is delightful Aberdeen on the banks of the gorgeous Hunter River.

Accommodation options in the region range from luxury retreats and holiday cottages to motels and campgrounds. Washpools campground is in the Towarri National Park, home to wallabies, gliders, powerful owls and glossy-black cockatoos, and pockets of rainforest, snow gums and casuarinas.

This spectacular wilderness is a lovely drive north of Scone, the horse capital of Australia and the second-biggest horse-breeding area in the world. Dozens of studs and world-class thoroughbred breeders are in the verdant countryside, where you can enjoy horseriding lessons and trail riding.

Festivals and events celebrating the equine history include the 10-day Scone and Upper Hunter Horse Festival and the Emirates Park Scone Cup Carnival. North of Scone is Murrurundi, a charming village on the banks of the beautiful Pages River and at the foot of the Liverpool Range.

Between Scone and Murrurundi is Burning Mountain Nature Reserve, where a natural underground fire has been burning for 5,500 years. From viewing platforms, experience this unique Australian landscape created by a naturally burning coal seam that forms part of the local Aboriginal Dreaming.enchanting wilderness, the Upper Hunter is a popular holiday escape and a wonderful region in NSW to explore.
