Southern Highlands vs Hunter Valley

Jump to last reply

Traveling from California to Oz in November for eclipse in QLD and then back to Sydney for several days. From there, we had planned to head up to Hunter Valley for 2 or 3 nights. Have been to HV a few years ago and found it to be much better than expected and felt that it warranted a return trip, perhaps with an overnight or two somewhere along coast near there.

However, have been reading about the Grand Pacific Drive to the Southern Highlands south of SYD and it looks like an interesting alternative. The GPD looks like a winner but was wondering if the Southern Highlands has as much to offer as Hunter Valley. Really into wine and see that Southern Highands has a few cellar doors, are they worthwhile?

Last trip to HV did not take in any of the coastal towns (pretty much took the freeway which was an underwhelming drive) so was wondering if we missed out on anything along the coast north of SYD.

If you've been to both HV and SH, please compare area offerings. We're in our mid 50s. Looking for nice scenery, wine, food, a small town or two to mosey around in.
