Finally, and much to Matt’s delight, someone has said g’day to us!!

We’re now officially backpackers, our tour today started outside the Youth Hostel! We’re sure that makes us all young and hip. Anyway, it was early start for our Hunter Valley Tour with Sam and Kangariffic. First stop was morning tea at a wildlife sanctuary and a cuddle with koalas and kangaroos before a chocolate tasting. We have remortgaged to fund Matt and John’s purchases. Then it was our first ’boutique’ wine tasting over looking vineyards with Roos hopping through it. Next we were treated to a cheese tasting before our final wine tasting of the day. Fabulous wine and views as well as meeting some lovely people. Our journey home was via a brewery and beer tasting. Fantastic day with a small group of people from USA, Canada and Singapore. Kangarriffic mate!!
