You do not necessarily have to be an artist to live in the Mountain Artist Studio. The blue skies, lush plants, and a birdseye view of Pokolbin might just be beautiful enough to inspire you to paint or compose odes about the place. The interior of the studio has a rustic, natural charm with its copious use of rich mahogany. Since the studio is in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine country, there are plenty of wineries to visit. There are alsomany hiking and biking trails nearby.

Staying in the Funky WIld West in the Aussie Bush at Walker Run is a unique experience. The accommodations are incredibly spacious and have large floor-to-ceiling windows, from which you can get a great view of the lush green surroundings and possibly wildlife. If you’re lucky, you may be able to see a kangaroo or koala passing through. You can also spend time outdoors on one of the two enormous decks or on the private 1-km road that guests have access to. After a long day of outdoor activities, you can take a dip in the pool to cool off.
