With its first vineyards established in the mid 19th century, wine tourism in Pokolbin remains a major draw.
Change things up with these side-trips from Pokolbin: Terrigal Beach (in Terrigal), Australian Reptile Park (in Gosford) and Tomaree Head (in Shoal Bay). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Newcastle Memorial Walk, learn about winemaking at Peterson House, admire the natural beauty at Hunter Valley Gardens, and admire all the interesting features of Fort Scratchley.
