• We then head to the coast to see how the winemakers relax – a coffee while we check the surf at one of the region’s top beach breaks.

• Our next stop is an ancient waterhole to spot freshwater Marron and wildlife and to taste local honey while we reflect on Aboriginal history dating back more than 50,000 years.

• Lunch at one the region’s most celebrated emerging superstar wineries –Fraser Gallop Estate – is our next highlight.  We have exclusive access to the working winery and vineyard and savour some of the best wines in the region matched with local produce while seated among barrels of ageing wine.
