Deep into The Hunter Valley

Nothing beats a sip of fine wine amid a trip, especially when it is in Australia and completed with a hot-balloon ride. Australia is now a top wine producer in the world. Among the many vineyards across the country, those in the Hunter Valley have the longest history and are best known. As the balloon goes up, a stunning view of the vast land comes into sight; as it descends, local fine wine and delicacies, luxurious spa, and golf await.



想用最悠閒的方式欣賞葡萄園,跳上熱氣球從上空俯瞰就是最佳選擇。一般遊客參加熱氣球活動,多是與十數人一起升空遊覽。想得到截然不同之體驗,這裏可奢侈地獨佔一台熱氣球,盡享私人訂製更獨特的旅程。只有倆口子浪漫地飄到葡萄園的上空,享受晨光初露,一邊欣賞獵人谷美景,一邊啖著氣泡酒和巧克力,陶醉於迷人的氣氛之中。早上清新的空氣使人心曠神怡,陽光映在葡萄園上帶來一片金光,景色更是迷人。當熱氣球旅程完成後,還會安排到當地酒莊Peterson House Winery內聲名及評價俱高的Restaurant Cuvée享受早餐,接著會安排一次華麗的品酒活動,一次過將獵人谷的美景、美食和美酒精華盡攬。


The Hunter Valley in New South Wales enjoys its close distance to Sydney. Ever since the first grapevines were imported from Europe and planted in 1824, the area has grown to become one of the best wine production regions in the world, now housing about 150 vineyards.

The golden morning rays and stunning scenery are accompanied by sparkling wine and chocolate. Breakfast at the famous Restaurant Cuvée follows and the experience concludes with a wine tasting session.

Certificates are given to visitors after a tasting session.

Every October, Opera in the Vineyards blends wine and art,drawing locals and travelers alike.
