I took this photo last June Long Weekend up at the Hunter Lookout in the Heaton State Forest We really are very lucky here in the Hunter Valley. Whilst we have wonderful wines and fantastic fresh produce, we also have some pretty special places in which to enjoy them. Climbing the ranges to places like the Hunter Lookout can help you escape a little of the heat as well. So why not grab yourself a nice chilled bottle of your favourite Hunter Semillon, some juicy Port Stephens oysters and your favourite picnic rug, and head for the hills! You potentially may want some company as well? (Cheers to our great mates Paula and Kevin pictured here!) Where’s your favourite Hunter Valley picnic spot?
