HOW IT WORKS
Pick up/drop off at the Newcastle Interchange
The team from Newcastle Connections will pick you up from the Newcastle Interchange at 9 am. On the bus we get to know each other, go through your welcome packs and start the dating games with the first round of musical seats.
2 of Hunter Valley's best wineries
The first two stops on the Love Bus is at two of the Hunter Valley's prestigious wineries where we learn from the best in business about Hunter Valley wines, the winemaking process, and get our tasting hats on. We will sip on their best samples across the wine colour spectrum while we drink in knowledge from the leading wine-makers of our region.
Divine lunch at Cellar Restaurant
Then we go to lunch at The Cellar Restaurant in the Hunter Valley Gardens for a two-course delight, which includes a bread entre and a main of your choosing, paired with a glass of wine, and great conversation with all our new friends.
Cocktails at Goldfish Cocktail Bar
After lunch, we are treated to a cocktail making experience at the Goldfish Cocktail Bar, where we learn how to make our favourite classics, and get hands-on with your choice of 3 classic cocktail recipes.
Adventures at Roche Estate and the Smelly Cheese Shop
Once we've got our hands sticky with high spirits and our bellies filling up with the good times we have free time to soak in the sunshine, admire the view, browse in the Smelly Cheese Shop and have a mini-adventure at the Roche Estate.
Matilda Bay Brewhouse
Finally, we end the afternoon with a chat and a chill out over a beer or other drink of your choosing at the beautiful Matilda Bat Brewhouse, sitting on the benches under the trees in the dappled afternoon sunshine where we can really connect with our new people.
In between each stop, we will be playing games on the bus, including musical chairs so you get to chat with everyone who is there, and some movie/music trivia (and maybe even a sing-a-long if the mood strikes...). But most importantly, we'll be meeting some new people, having a fabulous day out, throwing our cares to the wind and enjoying all the best bits of the extraordinary wine region in our back yard.
We can't wait to have you with us at what is sure to be the most magical Saturday ever.
