Breakfast

Today, pick up your vehicle from the Sydney airport and drive toward Hunter Valley. Make your own way to Pokolbin, located right in the heart of the Hunter Valley and the perfect place to base our self and explore the stunning surrounds. This afternoon check in to your accommodation. The Hunter Valley is one of Australia's most important wine regions with a history dating back to the early 1800's. You can spend the afternoon strolling or driving through the charming streets of town and surrounds. 

Breakfast
After breakfast we pick up our bikes and head off towards the cycle-way. The beauty about self guided cycling journeys is that you can stop where you want and for as long you like. It gives you the opportunity to focus on what you like!  It’s time to get the legs working now as you hit the Hermitage Road Cycle Path but you won’t need to head too far before you hit Mistletoe Wines & Sculpture garden. This is a beautiful family run winery, with classic Hunter wines and fabulous sculpture garden. It’s not much further to your next tasting opportunities at Tintilla Estate & Olive Grove and Pigs Peake Winery, the last opportunity to stop before lunch. They have an eclectic range of wines and are great fun. The final stop of the day is the iconic De luliis Wines, which has exceptional Semillons and if you are still hungry you can pair it with local cheeses.
Breakfast
Today is a day of great wineries and spectacular views. You start the day heading south on McDonald Road. You can visit two of the finest and modern cellar doors in the region, Usher Tinkler and Gundog Estate, both of which serve exceptional wines. Back on the bike you can cycle to Tulloch Wine or take on the hill to visit Audrey Wilkinson vineyard, where they have some of the best views in Pokolbin. A leisurely tasting awaits. It’s back on the bikes and you head further north again until you come to Brokenwood. This winery produces some exceptional wines. They have a wide range – something for everyone. We recommend having lunch here at their restaurant “The Wood Restaurant" (closed until late 2020). Or continue to the Roche Estate where you can have lunch at Oishii (daily) or the Goldfish Bar and Kitchen (Wed-Sun) or make a picnic lunch at the Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese Shop. After your full day we head back to Pokolbin where our accommodation awaits.
Breakfast
This morning, leave the Hunter Valley and travel through to the township of Branxton, Singleton. From Singleton, travel along Putty Road, skirting the Wollemi National Park to reach the towns of Kurrajong Heights. Travel onto Bilpin and to the township of Bell and then Mount Victoria past Blackheath and onto Katoomba which is the main town in the breathtaking Blue Mountains. The major scenic attraction is Echo Point, from where the best views of the Jamison Valley and the magnificent Three Sisters rock formation are. Visit the spectacular Wentworth Falls, enjoy a trip on the scenic railway with dramatic views of the Jamieson Valley. Visit the picturesque town of Leura and dine in one of the many fine restaurants.
Breakfast
For a more soothing afternoon, enjoy high tea at The Hydro Majestic Hotel — a revitalized historic property, boasting Art Deco architecture and magnificent views over the Megalong Valley.
Breakfast
Leave the Blue Mountains, head east towards Sydney on the Western Highway and pass through Springwood, Blaxland and Glenbrook, before linking to the Western Motorway to Sydney. Return your vehicle in the city this evening. 
Breakfast

Explore the dynamic city of Sydney at your own expense. You may proceed to Sydney Fish Market, the largest market of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
