Cycle the Hunter Valley Wineries

The Hunter Valley is the perfect destination for lovers of wine. Located just a couple of hours from Sydney, the Hunter Valley is ideal if you're looking for a wine-themed holiday that explores some of Australia's best vineyards and wineries. The Hunter Valley is home to Australia's oldest vineyards and it is recommended to try the local Shiraz and Semillon varieties.
And the best way to explore the Hunter Valley has to be on a bike tour. This is because the Hunter Valley terrain is relatively flat and lined with quiet country roads, and even has its own dedicated cycling trail, the Hermitage Bike Path. The vineyards are situated within close cycling proximity so you never need to ride too far between stops. Plus you can soak up the gorgeous country scenery along the route.

Our cycling itineraries feature stops at Rothvale Winery, Tintilla Estate & Olive Grove, Pigs Peake Winery, and the iconic De luliis Wines. There's also the option to visit the Iron Bark Hill Brewery if you want to sample a refreshing beer.
These conditions make for a cycling tour in the Hunter Valley that is achievable, fun, and memorable. Also, if you do need an extra boost in your pedalling, you can always upgrade to an e-bike. There really is no better way to discover the Hunter Valley than by a bike holiday!
At Australian Cycle Tours, we offer four self-guided trip options to explore the Hunter Valley.

1. Hunter Valley Explorer Self Guided Cycle Tour
