More often than not, you’ll instantly think of ‘Sydney’ when you hear ‘NSW’. However, there is so much more to the state than meets the eye! Regional NSW is rich with authentic countryside experiences, exquisite wine country, prominent historical sights and quaint small-town charm.
Globus has introduced a brand-new 8-day NSW Wineries & Countryside tour which will showcase an adventure like no other! We’ve highlighted some of the top spots that you will visit while on tour with us. You’ll leave feeling a million miles away from the big smoke.
Often called the gateway to the Hunter Valley, Peterson House is an icon of the Hunter Valley. The Peterson family have solidified their place amongst the vines, making wine since 1982. They’re renowned for their sparkling wine when founder Ian Peterson discovered that it wasn’t being commercially produced in small volumes in NSW. Set amongst a beautiful space, this tour kicks off with a welcome lunch at Peterson House followed by a tasting of local chocolates – delicious!
The quality of Hunter Belle cheeses is second to none. Combining the milk from Swiss Brown cows and traditional cheese-making methods means the final result is a variety of unique, artisan cheeses. The business has grown over the years, with a café, cheese tasting, and tour included on this Globus holiday. The tour is particularly fascinating with viewing windows into the cheese making, maturation and packing rooms. You’ll come away a cheese connoisseur!
The Mudgee Fine Foods Farmers’ Market holds a strong ethos of farm to plate. All products have been grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked, smoked or processed by the stallholders themselves. This means everyone is guaranteed to be supporting the local farmers and community by buying the freshest, most local produce. There’s time to grab a coffee and delicious treat of your choice and browse the stalls while listening to local musicians.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service in Dubbo is a fascinating experience where you’ll learn all about this innovative organisation. Reverend John Flynn founded The Flying Doctor in 1927 in a bid to help those in Australia’s remote communities. Nowadays, you’ll find a Visitor Experience centre right next door to its working base in Dubbo. The Visitor Experience is an interactive deep dive into an outstanding history of serving those in the Outback. Check out the live operations, read about real-world stories and more!
For that extra ‘wow’ factor, you can choose to overnight at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo! Your accommodation for the night is found right next to a savannah, home to giraffes, rhinos and zebra. Delight in an afternoon safari and dinner at the zoo, before settling in for the night. Wake up with the wildlife and breakfast, before your morning safari adventure.
