Waterways, whales and wine

Waterways and wilderness, whales and wineries, there’s so much to explore so close to Sydney’s back door.

Unwind by the sea at Bannisters Port Stephens, a boutique coastal getaway providing oceanview accommodation, a divine day spa and Rick Stein signature seafood. Cruise Port Stephens’ tranquil waterways for the opportunity to spot dolphins and, in season (May to November) migrating whales. Walk on the beach, hike through native bushlands or dine by the water in Port Stephens.

From here, head inland to recharge at the wonderfully romantic and relaxing Spicers Vineyards Estate. Set on its own private vineyard, in the heart of Hunter Valley wine country, this is the place to enjoy fine wines and great food (and perhaps even another visit to the day spa!). Enjoy a guided behind-the-scenes experience and tasting at one of the region’s boutique wineries.

Price: From $1,460pp (based on double/twin share. $2,920 total for two people).

Inclusions: 4 nights’ accommodation (2 nights Bannisters Port Stephens, 2 nights Spicers Vineyards Estate Hunter Valley) including daily breakfast. Behind-the-scenes Hunter Valley winery tour and tasting. 3-hour whale or dolphin watching cruise watching cruise in Port Stephens (shared basis).

Note: This is a self-drive itinerary; please ask for details if you require a rental car or alternative transport options.
