We are swiftly heading towards the end of the year, which means we are coming into concert season in the Hunter Valley. Some big events are coming our way over the spring and summer, including Fleetwood Mac at Hope Estate and Bernard Fanning for A Day on the Green at Bimbadgen, along with the annual Opera in the Vineyards show at Wyndham Estate this weekend. Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of the Hunter Valley concerts will be when The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, performs in February this year.
These events put the spotlight on the region and are a huge drawcard. Naturally, accommodation in the area books out in no time once these concerts are announced, so it pays to plan your trip early. One-day private tour/concert transfer packages are available with Country Trails, picking up in Sydney or the Hunter Valley. For more information on concerts and other upcoming events, the Hunter Valley Wine Country website is worth a look (www.winecountry.com.au).
