Food & wine odyssey 

Day 1
Morning: Central Coast 
Take a short detour off the M1 and stop by the Old Wyong Milk Factory and indulge in the local tasty offering from Little Creek Cheese and Luka Chocolates. Watch the mastery of the chocolate making process through their viewing window.

Lunch: New Castle 
• Browse the galleries, boutiques and shops along Newcastle’s famous Darby Street and lunch in one of the many quirky cafes, sleek restaurants or popular bars.
• Take in the sights of Newcastle's coastline and city along the newly built Memorial Walk, commemorating local soldiers who have fought for our country; and finish up at Merewether Beach for a caffeine fix in the sea breeze.

Afternoon: Port Stephens
If all that sea air is making you hungry, and you like your seafood very fresh, head to Holberts Oyster Farm. View through large windows the professional oyster shuckers at work, then either takeaway or eat alfresco style onsite looking over the stunning views of Port Stephens.
