Day 33 was the one we had been looking forward to for a while...chocolate, cheese and wine tasting in the Hunter Valley!!! We joined the minibus at 7.45am and headed to our first stop....the Walkabout Wildlife Park! We had our first experiences of Australian wildlife and were walking around with kangaroos, stroking Koalas and holding yet more snakes which was very exciting!! Next stop was the chocolate factory where we sampled chilli chocolate (NOT nice) and then it was winery number 1! We were aiming for sophistication and succeeded until we decided to make our first purchase. Always looking for a bargain we didn't miss the clearance case of 12 bottles of wine for $45! Unfortunately however the wine did come at the expense of taste which was very definately not exquisite and so spritzers were required!!! Continuing around the valley we sampled lots of semillions, chardonnays, shirazes and cheeses before heading back a little tired and with very confused tastebuds!! Not wanting to let our new wines deteriorate any further we cracked them open and went out for another night in King's Cross! Another eventful night ensued which left Becky without her passport (but fortunately it was found the next day...panic over!!!)
