Overview
More
Hope Estate draws a bigger crowd than any other destination in the Hunter Valley. We've had the honour of hosting some of the biggest names in the world: Elton John, The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and Bruce Springsteen are just a few of the acts that have graced the Hope Estate stage. The Estate has been a 'must visit' destination since "the godfather of the Australian wine industry" Len Evans constructed it in the late 60's. Owner Michael Hope has built upon Evans legacy, adding an amphitheatre holding up to 20,000 guests and greatly expanding the hospitality services available. We are proud to offer an authentic range of Estate Grown Hunter Valley wines from our vineyards across Pokolbin and Broke. There is also a wide variety of wines available from our vineyards Western Australia and Victoria. The Estate is also the home of Hope Brewhouse, the winner of the 2016 CBA "Champion Small Brewery" Award. At any given time, there are at least 12 different brews on tap. Try a tasting paddle and enjoy it amongst the open-air brewery, taking in the sights and smells of fresh beer being brewed. Located in the heart of Pokolbin, Hope Estate has grown to become the Hunter's premier destination.

Firstly I have to say, the negative reviews based on customer service during a large concert are unfair and inaccurate. One cannot appreciate this place in a loud drunken environment. I have been here numerous times during the quiet period where I can appreciate the...More

It is actually an open air concert venue, so with the grounds available, and dependent on how they configure the venue, you would expect at least 5000.

It's an outdoor venue, and often there is some allocated seating up the front for certain ticket holders, while the rest of the visitors will set themselves up on the surrounding lawn. It's a very relaxed atmosphere.
