The Hunter Valley is about 2 hours drive north of Sydney and is home to some of the best wineries in Australia. If you’re after a great white wine this is the place to visit. Besides what a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney and grab some fresh country air to recharge the batteries as winter beckons. This was just the chance to test out the Canon 6d with the Canon 24-70 F4 IS and Canon 17-40mm lenses. We stayed at Cypress Lakes Resort that is centrally based and has a wonderful golf course amongst other facilities.
