On a three week whirlwind tour of Australia, we wanted to spend some time in a winegrowing area and chose the Hunter Valley for its proximity to Sydney. Carriages was the perfect spot for lots of wine tasting but also for relaxing and enjoying nature. We were particularly taken with the birds in the area and were entertained by a trio of kookaburras that perched in the trees outside the inn. It is a very low key and relaxing spot. It felt like a visit to someone's summer cottage. Very very nice indeed.
