Lovedale Long Lunch 2017

Home  /  Culture  /  Current Page

Set in the beautiful Hunter Valley, Gay4Play invites you on a progressive-style lunch for lovers of gourmet food and wine to enjoy the very best of Lovedale Long Lunch.  

Fine wines, cheese, gourmet meals, decadent deserts and live entertainment await you on this perfect day trip away from Sydney where we shuttle you around to explore three vineyards on Lovedale Road, Hunter Valley.  

The Gay4Play bus will transport you from Sydney to the Hunter and around each winery, stopping for approximately two hours at each vineyard. Here, you can picnic in the fields with your wine goblet and kick back to the live entertainment while taking in the beauty of the Hunter Valley. The bus then transports you back to Sydney, while we listen to some music and chat about the day over a nice drop of wine.  

There is no theme this year but as always we encourage you to dress LOUD.   The Lovedale Long Lunch began in 1994 to market Lovedale as a premium wine-producing area and tourist attraction. It includes seven wineries and attracts upwards of 10,000 guests each year.
