Hand-feed the freely roaming wallabies, kangaroos and emus at the park, home to creatures great and small, slippery and scaly, fluffy and furry. You might even meet a koala!

Morning tea and coffee is served at the wildlife park as you meet and greet the animals.

Leaving the park, your small-group tour takes you along the Freeway to The Hunter Valley, which is nestled in the lee of The Great Dividing Range.

Sample the local vintages and learn how to tell the difference between chardonnay and a pinot noir.

If you like food and wine then this is a great tour for you! Although I didn't find a lot of wines that I absolutely loved, the experience was amazing. It was really well paced and the food was delicious!! Hunter valley is a beautiful place!

We did this the second day of our trip and met some really fun people. Paul was our tour guide and was very funny. The first winery had the most beautiful views and ambiance and we ended the day with a wonderful lunch. Couldn't have been better!
