Good to know
It's dress-down lodge living here – leave the tiara behind.
Lodges have up to five bedrooms – no-frills and simply furnished – a huge living area, barbecue and fully equipped kitchen. Some also have an outdoor hot tub.
Be sure to ask for one of the lodges with a hot tub on the verandah.
Eat & Drink
Delicious but un-fussy food is on the menu at Treehops, the Eaglereach restaurant. It has all the feel of an alpine ski lodge in winter, when a roaring fire keeps mountain chills at bay. Go a la carte and sample country favourites such as honey mustard glazed duck breast, deep fried goats cheese in spring roll pastry and the ultra-indulgent praline semi-freddo with caramel sauce.
Alternatively, turn chef yourself with a barbecue hamper filled with great local meats and burgers to sizzle out on your deck. All this can be washed down with some great Hunter Valley wines.
Breakfast is served at Treehops until 9:30am.
See & Do
The Hunter Valley is a wine lovers' paradise and there are scores of world class wineries for tours and tastings. Go Crocodile Dundee with a bush or rainforest tramp and a swim in Goonarook Lagoon. There are endless possibilities for sports fans, from tennis to mountain biking and kayaking. Tours of the region take in the Barrington Tops national park country, Port Stephens and the wineries. Go bird watching, book a dolphin cruise or get up-close and personal with the local native wildlife (luckily there are no crocs) at feeding time.
All manner of treatments and massages are available in the health and fitness centre.
Combine wine tasting with modern art at Sculpture in the Vineyards, featuring more than 40 installations across the Hunter Valley.
