With every wine region represented, we look to encapsulate the unique experience that each area provides. The wines we select, the way we style and dress the tents all look to provide an authentic insight into what visiting these well-known regions is all about.

One of Australia’s major wine regions is home to some of the most well-known and recognisable wineries from around the globe. Offering classic wine tours, and more boutique cellar door opportunities at over 120 wineries. There’s a reason why The Hunter is held in such high regard to all levels of wine appreciation.

Located an hour and a half north-east of the City of Churches, this South Australian juggernaut is considered the premier wine destination not only of Australian, but of International acclaim. Rolling hills and a certain small town charm are championed by one of the best cultural experiences Australia has to offer. Renowned for good food and good times, the Barossa is an adventure not to be missed.

‘The Yarra’ as it’s affectionately known by Melbournian faithful – is Victoria’s principal wine region. The cooler climate boasts the most varieties of any Australian wine region, so there’s something for everyone south of the border. Whether you’re a foodie at heart, a thrill seeker or a couple looking for the perfect weekend getaway – the Yarra is Australia’s All Rounder when it comes to wine-based experiences.

Known for its country charm, local produce and it’s beautiful orchards, the Central West of New South Wales provides an insight into simpler times. This up and comer has been a quiet achiever over the last decade or so, but continues to receive critical acclaim from industry experts. Spending a little time in our take on the Central West will surely make you understand why.

There aren’t many places where the countryside meets the sea, but Margaret River gets the chance to show off the best of both worlds. Limestone caves and sea-side cliffs frame the picture-perfect wine lovers’ dream. Foodies rejoice as the best local produce and culinary excellence are on show 12 months of the year. Those who appreciate high end wine production will find their home here in Margaret River.


Nestled at the foothills of the beautiful Blue Mountains – The Lakeside Long Lunch calls the picturesque Sydney International Regatta Centre home.

Located under an hour west of the Sydney CBD, Lakeside isn’t far from home.
