    Day 8-10

    Blue Mountains

    Blue Mountains

    A hazy, ultramarine when seen from afar, as you drive towards them they define the horizon. Then they seem to be marching across the landscape as you draw nearer, and the closer you venture the more beautiful they become. In fact, the Blue Mountains are so ruggedly photogenic they’re World Heritage listed. Make sure your camera’s batteries are fully charged.

    Especially when you take a trip on the world’s steepest passenger train ride – the fabled Scenic Railway (the name is a masterpiece of understatement). You’ll be staying in the quaint and traditional village of Leura.

    Stay: Three nights in the Old Leura Dairy.

    Day 11-13

    Hunter Valley

    Hunter Valley

    A delightful drive takes you down from the mountains and into the valley. The Hunter Valley to be precise – a famous centre of viticulture and home to many of Australia’s most prestigious wines. In fact, you’ll be staying in Pokolbin, at the five star Spicers Vineyards Estate with its breath-taking vistas of the Brokenback Mountains.

    You’ll also be surrounded by Hunter Valley’s most internationally renowned wineries, any number of gourmet restaurants and a plethora of challenging golf courses – all within easy driving distance.

    Stay: Three nights at the five star, Spicers Vineyards Estate.
