The beautiful city of Sydney is filled with sceneries, history, and culture that you can enjoy. Sydney is located on the East Coast of Australia, where its harbour is quite popular with tourists. With its vibrancy, you are sure to have a blast during your visit there. Here are some weekend destinations you should visit while in Sydney:
If you love wine and cheese, then Hunter Valley is the place to be. Dubbed the wine country, Hunter Valley is a region with more than 150 wineries cut across their green pastures. Hunter Valley is over 180 years old and is locally and internationally recognized for its exquisite wines. The engaging activity here is the wine tasting and participating in the process of winemaking right from harvesting. Hunter Valley also offers luxurious accommodation, including a well-furnished tent for couples or rooms for larger groups or families.
Situated right between New Castle and Sydney, the elegant Lake Macquarie is a great weekend destination. The main feature is Caves Beach, which offers a variety of activities. You can chill at the Bayfront or dine with your loved ones. You could also take a long nature walk across the 5km stretch along the beach leading Pinney’s Beach in Wallarah National Park. You could also enjoy some horse riding with a group around or take a trip to Wagatan Mountains. Alternatively, you can hire one of the local boats to head out for some fishing and exploring.
