On this 3-day, 2-night journey, you’ll escape off the beaten path and into the world of nature to enjoy quaint country towns, meandering rivers, fresh mountain air and farm gates in this less-visited part of New South Wales.

Whilst most flock to the wineries of the Hunter, you get to unwind on an experience designed to take you away from the crowds. Intimate encounters with farmers and park rangers shed light on the Gondwana Rainforest region of Barrington Tops, and still leave you plenty of time to relax for bushwalks, catered picnics, and a memorable dinner party. We plan every special detail so you can appreciate learning about this region’s conservation efforts and happenings.

  • Friday 26 – Sunday 28 February 2021
  • Friday 19 – Sunday 21 March 2021
