Spend your time exploring the Hunter Valley Gardens, Hunter Valley Zoo, sight-seeing by bike or on foot, browsing local markets, tasting beautiful local cuisine and, of course, sampling top drops at local wineries!
The Retreat feels far away when you’re there, but it’s actually only 90 minutes North of Sydney, 40 minutes inland from Newcastle and 15 minutes South of Cessnock

No matter what time of year you go, the Hunter Valley is as pretty as a postcard. The hills roll gently, the flora flourishes and the Watagan Mountains shine in the distance.
But its beauty is just a bonus. The real draw card is the world-class winemaking that goes on in the valley. Visitors hop from cellar to cellar, tasting the drops that end up on tables across the globe. Where there’s fine wine, there’s always good food and the cuisine scene of the Hunter Valley.
Between bites and during time-outs from tasting, try some fun outdoor activities. The land lends itself to horseback riding, bike riding, nature walking and hot air ballooning, so round your visit off nicely with some nature!
We loved the friendly staff, tasty home cooked food and the relaxing ambiance."Trip Advisor
We had two glorious nights at the Hunter Valley Retreat sharing a 3 bedroom farmhouse with close friends. The facilities were excellent and we were kept very warm by the slow combustion heater The service we received was warm and welcoming"Trip Advisor
