The Hunter Valley is only a three and a half hours drive from Sydney and makes an excellent day trip to get away from the crowded streets of Sydney. If you are considering taking a group of family and friends then contact us today to arrange your transport.

Here are some of the best wineries that you could include on your minibus wine tour of the Hunter Valley.

Audrey Wilkinson Winery

The Audrey Wilkinson Winery is one of the most picturesque wineries in the Hunter Valley. But this winery is not just all glamour, the wines are pretty good too. The country-house cellar door has a glorious backdrop of the Brokenback Mountain Range perfect for sipping some glorious chardonnay and semillon.

Bimbadgen Winery

Bimbadgen means place of good view, and it certainly lives up to its billing. This winery is perfect for group visits and holds many outdoor events including concerts. The winery is surrounded by fig trees that are over a century old.

The cellar door is highly popular, and the tasting rooms are large and full of atmosphere. Most people enjoy a variety of estate wines that include shiraz, chardonnay, verdelho and a shiraz viognier blend. If you wish to sample some great local food then the Esca restaurant is a must.

Harkham Wines

Harkham Wines is one of the best producers of natural wines in the Hunter Valley, and it also happens to be one of the closest wineries to Sydney. This great winery also offers accommodation so if you want to extend your stay then there is no problem.

As well as the excellent wines the estate produces meade and also a quite remarkable chocolate liqueur.

Brokenwood Wines

If you are in search of good chardonnay then make sure your winery itinerary includes Brokenwood Wines. They have been producing first-class chardonnay since 1975 as well as their legendary Cricket Pitch red.

The stand-out wines at Brokenwood are their award-winning chardonnays that have excellent fruit and the ultimate balance of acidity.

Gartelmann Wines

One of the finest boutique wineries in the Hunter Valley has to be Gartelmann Wines. Located in Lovedale it produces highly regarded semillon and shiraz. Not to be ignored are the merlot and chardonnay as well.

Although the cellar door is rather tiny, actually it resembles more of a country house, it serves the estate wines along with other gourmet products from around the region. You can choose between the cellar door and the covered deck to enjoy your tasting. If you feel peckish then there is also a great value for money cafe that opens for breakfast and lunch.

These are just some of the great wineries that you can enjoy on your minibus tour of the Hunter Valley from Sydney. There are many other wineries if you would like to extend your trip.

Minibus Golf Tours from Sydney

Minibus Golf Tours from Sydney

Many visitors come to Sydney to play golf, and the reason for this is that being based in a great city like Sydney also offers easy access to some of the very best golf courses in Australia.

Here at Sydney Executive Coach Charter we have great experience in taking golf parties in our small group minibus charters of Sydney. We can supply a vehicle suitable for your party and all their clubs, and take you to some of the very best golf courses around Sydney, simply contact us with the details of your small group golf excursion and leave the rest to us.

In this blog we look at some of the great golf courses in and around the Sydney area.

Royal Sydney Golf Club

Why not play a round or two with your friends at a course that has hosted the Australian Open on many occasions. It is also the course of the famous incident when the American golfer John Daley broke a spectator’s camera back in 2008.

If you are not really into the golfing etiquette side of golf then perhaps Royal Sydney is not the place for you, as it is as old school than you can possibly get. To become a member you will have to join a long waiting list and know the right people.

The course is difficult to say the least and you will have to be a pretty good player to get around without embarrassing yourself.

The Australian Golf Club

Roseberry was designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus and the Australian Golf Club course is about as good as it gets in Australia. It is also the oldest golf course in Australia and is the birthplace of the Australian Open.

Roseberry still hosts the Cadogan Cup which was first competed for in 1884 and is still the oldest golf competition in Australia.

New South Wales Golf Club

The previous two courses you have to be a member or invited to play, but this course is different and if you have an official handicap then some slots are open to the public.

The course is set in unbelievable rugged surroundings provided by its coastal location, and although La Perouse is just as exclusive as say Royal Sydney but feels more welcoming. The fairways are undulating, with small greens to try and hit. Like most links courses the sea winds play a big part in your game.

The signature hole of the course is the iconic par 3, which is the 6th hole. It is perched on a rocky outcrop which looks out over the wreck of the SS Minmi.

The Lakes Golf Club

Eastlakes or as it is better known, The Lakes Golf Club, is open to non-members if you can afford the $350 green fee. Located near Sydney airport, Eastlakes is a world-class golf course, and it has even held the Australian Open on three occasions.

Becoming a member at this prestigious club is difficult, actually near impossible with numerous references, interviews, and recommendations to negotiate before invitation.

These are some of the very best golf courses in New South Wales, and if you wish to visit any of them, or perhaps other great courses in and around Sydney, then contact Sydney Executive Coach Charter for your group transportation needs.

Collins Flat Beach is famous for its calm and tranquil waters which makes it brilliant for kids, the only noise you can hear is that of a nearby waterfall.

Milk Beach

Located in the Sydney Harbour National Park is one of the greatest beaches in all Sydney, namely Milk Beach. This tiny beach offers great views of some of the landmark sights of Sydney.

You have clear views of Sydney Tower, the Opera House, and Harbour Bridge. Milk Beach is virtually unheard of by tourists, so although it is only 50 meters long it is often deserted. One of the best sunset vistas can be obtained from this great beach, as the sun sets right by the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Bondi Beach

One of the best-known beaches in the world has to be Bondi, and because of this fact, it gets crowded nearly all of the time. Early in the morning is a great time to see the beauty of this famous Sydney landmark.

You cannot deny it is a great beach, there is golden sand and the waters are a beautiful turquoise colour. The beach also has constantly great waves, which are perfect for surfing and swimming. The whole area around Bondi has its own great beach culture, with bijou cafes and bars to hang out with your surfing buddies.

Palm Beach

If you can be bothered to drive an hour from Sydney’s CBD then you can find one of the more remote beaches that doesn’t attract the crowds. You may recognize the location as this is the beach that is featured in the popular TV programme Home and Away.

Palm Beach has everything, great waters for surfing and swimming, plenty of golden sand to soak up the rays and great picnic areas.

Getting to some of the more remote beaches on our list can be a little difficult, so just contact us here at Sydney Executive Coach Charter and leave the rest to us.
