Australia Wine Regions


  • When planning and trips to Australia, a visit to the Hunter Valley should be included to experience one of Australia's premier  wine growing areas.

Also visit Australia - Wine and Grape Industry.

With Australia’s diverse range of climates and soil, wine is one of its most important products. Over 30 million cases are exported all round the world every year. Wine grapes are grown in nearly every state and territory but the major wine-growing areas are concentrated in the southern half of the country, mostly within a hundred kilometers/60 miles of the coast. Some of the most important on an Australia vacation are:

Hunter Valley with more than a hundred wineries is a two hour drive north of Sydney offering not only wineries but also gourmet food at restaurants and cafés, rustic cottages and beachside retreats.

The Yarra Valley, Victoria's oldest wine region is located 50 kilometres/30 miles east of Melbourne offering country retreats, wineries and restaurants with over fifty wineries open for tastings and sales.

South Australia is the state with the largest area of vineyards producing half the country's wine and is responsible for 70 per cent of the country's wine exports. The Barossa Valley is one of the best-known and productive wine districts in Australia, only 50 kiomtres/30 miles from Adelaide. There are some 48 wineries in the Barossa. The landscape includes thousands of hectares of maintained vineyards that contain some of the oldest Shiraz vines dating back to the 1840s.

Margaret River is a 3 hour drive from Perth, renowned for its breathtaking scenery and relaxed lifestyle with over 80 wineries scattered throughout the unique countryside. The combination of world class wines and fine, fresh produce make dining out in Margaret River a pleasure.
