​So much to explore in the Hunter New England region

Hunter New England region is enchanting and enriching: From Wyndham Estate, the oldest winery in Australia, to Scone, the horse capital of Australia. From Tamworth, Australia’s home of country music, to Wee Waa, the birthplace of the country’s cotton industry. Walcha, where the wild rivers run, to Gunnedah, where Dorothy Mackellar wrote her famous poem, My Country, "I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping planes, Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains."

The diverse landscape across the Hunter New England area includes the Hunter Valley, Barrington Tops National Park, the beaches along the Newcastle, Nelson Bay and Forster, and the Gondwana Rainforests. Not to mention mobs of kangaroos and koalas, and prime birdwatching territory in Kurri Kurri.

More than 920,000 people call this area home, including 23% of the state's Aboriginal population. It’s easy to see why: rich in history, culture and natural beauty, many families enjoy a laidback lifestyle and affordable living. There are a range of public and private schools, universities, and plenty of cellar doors and gourmet dining.
