We had a fun filled day visiting some very interesting wineries. The wines were fantastic and they don't skimp on their samples either. The Smelly Cheese Factory, Vodka & Schnapps tasting were awesome. Our guide, Derek, was a great bloke and very knowledgeable. We thoroughly recommend the full day tour, you won't be disappointed.

We were treated to wine tasting at 4 different wineries each with their own special magic, a chocolate factory and cheese shop. Lunch was simple but delicious at a lovely venue overlooking a dam.

Neighbourhood Profile
Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.
