Port Stephens, NSW
By Lisa Monk

Think of a place with a wonderful range of beaches – from secluded bays to surfing breaks, and almost everything in between – lying like jewels along its coastline … think of a place that offers wonderful restaurants to suit everything from a family dinner on summer holidays to a very special night out … think of a place with amazing views – above and below the sea, such as panoramic views of the entire region to underground caves … think of a place with accommodation to suit every pocket and so many activities that it would take many, many visits to do them all … and then imagine this place is within two hours or so of Sydney and one hour to Newcastle, and you have Port Stephens. Blessed with an embarrassment of riches, it is no wonder that t... Read more

NSW Wine regions
By Kylie Robertson & Irene Morgan

The Food and Wine of New South Wales Australia’s first vines Since the first grapevine was planted on the edge of Sydney Harbour in 1788, the New South Wales wine industry has flourished. Today, New South Wales produces world-famous Hunter Semillons, rich ripe reds from Mudgee, delicate cool-climate wines from Australia’s highest vineyards and sweet botrytis-affected wines that are amongst the best in the world. The diversity of climate and terrain in New South Wales has encouraged new and exciting wine regions to emerge alongside established ones such as the Hunter Valley, Orange and Mudgee.
