What does the city have to offer?
The Hunter Valley is one of Australia's best known wine regions.
Located in the state of New South Wales, the region has played a major role in the history of Australian wine as one of the first wine regions planted in the early 19th century.
The main river in the region is the Hunter River, after which the region is named. Fresh water supply for the region is provided from a number of sources, which are managed by the Hunter Water and State Water Corporations. State Water Corporation's dams supply water for irrigation, industrial use at coal mines and the region's coal-fired power stations and town water.
The main industries in the Hunter Region are coal mining, agriculture, wine making, horse breeding, dairy farming and beef cattle farming.
The Hunter Region is one of Australia's most famous wine-growing regions, known for both its red and white wine varieties.
