The Rothbury Experience

Moving away from Sydney for a private getaway or indulging in the beauty of nature’s calm and serenity, the region of the Hunter Valley is always the best bet. Located in this New South Wales’ region of stunning scenery is a small town of Rothbury which has a meager population count of 309 and can be accessed from Cessnock.

Over the years, Rothbury has gained considerable popularity as a tourist destination due to a major advantage of enjoying vicinity to the famous vineyards and nearby holiday rentals and restaurants, with brilliant facilities for dining and overnight staying.

Tourist Destinations and Accommodation

The Vintage Golf Club happens to be an exceptional destination for sports and recreational facilities and is located within the Hunter Valley’s serene vineyards extending into dramatic eucalyptus forests, trickling creeks and wetlands. It beautifully blends with the surrounding landscape and natural beauty where holidaymakers can exercise their golfing skills on Greg Norman designed golf courses. There are holiday apartments and homes available at The Vintage where tourists can stay overnight with family and friends.

The wide expanse of the large number of vineyards within the Hunter Valley attracts huge number of holidaymakers who are enthralled by dramatic views of surrounding scenery and the sunset. These old vineyards spread over many acres of land near to Rothbury are minutes away from golf courses, restaurants, galleries and cellar doors. That’s why they are ideal for couples, small groups and families. There are wine tasting tours organized from the town by travel guides; individuals can even take private tours of the beautiful vineyards all by themselves.

The Ogishi Craft Centre is an art glass cottage studio in Rothbury that is almost heaven for those tourists passionate about glass art; this place happens to be one of the very few glassblowing studios throughout Australia. The adjoining gallery exhibits a plethora of blown glass decorative items, art chocolate and craft items which are generally purchased for their uniqueness and even as souvenirs by local and international tourists. There are glassblowing lessons available at the cottage and even holiday accommodation with a spacious but cozy Japanese interior.

Unforgettable hot air balloon flights are a treat for honeymooners, who can celebrate the marvellous flight with champagne, get pictures taken and dine in, after the adventure at a popular champagne house nearby. Flying over the Hunter Valley gives passengers a chance to enjoy the awe-inspiring views and magnificent landscapes.

Other Holiday Rentals

Holidaymakers can choose from a wide array of accommodation options. There are wonderful and relaxing lodges, Inns and holiday villas for those who want a luxurious living; you can also find reasonable apartments available to accommodate on budget visitors.

The list doesn’t stop here. There are private hideaways and B&BS offering scenic views and fresh meals specifically for couples.

Some reasonably priced restaurants are also available; they are designed with various themes ranging from a relaxed country-style to contemporary and chic, from traditional design elements to simply ethnic.

Favourable Climatic Conditions

The overall temperature during summer remains considerably higher; however, January to April are the summer months when Rothbury witnesses majority of rainfall within the Hunter Valley. The climatic conditions remain warm throughout the region and even the winter months are not on the extreme side. Cool sea breeze lightens up the weather, resulting in mild conditions all year round and making it highly favorable for tourism.

The Kingsford Smith Airport within central Sydney is located at a distance of 135 kilometers from Rothbury town and operates a full schedule of flights from UK.

Fantastic family celebration property!

5 of 5
“WhiteVale was an impressive house that was fantastic for a large group of people. It was perfect for the celebration of my Dads 80th where we could all be together but still have space for different conversations and activities.”
