I come here occasionally (usually for work), and besides the commercialism, it’s so beautiful. Especially the drive up with fresh produce on the side of the road – that’s the best and the fruit is always fresh and wholesome. The Hunter Valley Gardens (HVG) are a must see, Huge rose garden and Many other Gardens such as: Storybook (pictured), Formal, Oriental etc. As I posted earlier, the Tempus Two Oishii restaurant and the Ice Cream joint there are great. Harrigan’s Irish pub is also fun at night! Cheers.
