Good times, great vibes, the Hunter Valley way.

Love a little live music with your wine? Our vineyard concerts and festivals will be music to your ears. Let the tunes and the vines create a relaxed and enjoyable setting for you to unwind and savor the moment.

Rally the troops, claim your patch of ground at one of our big name estates, and celebrate the greats of all music genres where there’s space to dance up a storm and seriously good Semillon to enjoy. Catch an international headline act under wide open skies in Australia’s biggest vineyard amphitheatres. Chillax to smooth sunset jazz with an old vine Hunter Shiraz. Be moved by the magic of a starlit symphony, stretched out on your picnic blanket with a glass of Hunter bubbly. And if it’s locally grown, smoked, brewed, distilled, BBQ’d or spit roasted, rest assured, we have a festival for it!

Plan ahead to have your choice of conveniently located accommodation with warm country hospitality, from contemporary getaways and cottages on a working wineries, to well appointed homesteads, boutique hotels, wilderness retreats and luxury resorts. Our most popular stays are quickly snapped on weekends, year-round, and may book-out months in advance once a touring artist is announced.

Don’t leave it until the last minute and be disappointed!

Book early, allow a few days for exploring more of the valley, and you’ll be so glad you did! 



1. Pinpoint your destination.

There are three main venues where most concerts are held, Hope Estate, Roche Estate and Bimbadgen.

Check our events page for individual event venue details.

2. Check on-site parking details or book a local transfer well in advance.

As with any major event, anywhere, allow for traffic congestion and delays.

The most direct approach is via Allandale Road/Wine Country Drive through Cessnock/Nulkaba to Pokolbin turnoff. Or take the back roads through local wineries via Mount View Road.

3. Pre-book a local cab or maxi-taxi

Or arrange a private driver, bus shuttle, or coach specialising in concert events, from our local tours and transport listings. Some services offer ticket and transport combo deals and grazing hamper options.

4. Don’t assume you can BYO.

Check the availability and restrictions for onsite food and drinks at your event.

Get inspired
