With some great road trip options available in the surrounding area, having your own car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to explore everything that Pokolbin, 30 miles away, has to offer. Among your first stops here ought to be Hunter Valley Gardens, Hope Estate and Roche Estate. Situated 35 miles away, Hawks Nest is another place to aim for. If you drop by, make sure you check out Tea Gardens-Hawks Nest Bridge, Jimmys Beach and Winda Woppa Reserve.
