Book your stay, including tickets for the event today!


Located 40 minutes from Newcastle and 2 hours north of Sydney off the New England Highway, stay at the newly upgraded Best Western Plus Hunter Gateway at the doorstep of Hunter Valley wine country in the Maitland/Rutherford region.

The hotel provides 61 fully refurbished ground level rooms and free parking. Guests will also enjoy free in-room wi-fi, dining at the onsite Rutherford Restaurant or relaxing by the outdoor pool. The hotel offers meeting and conferencing facilities, holding up to 150 pax in the main conference space. Rooms for people with a disability are also available.
West of historic Maitland, the hotel locates you close to the Maitland Gaol, Hunter Valley Gardens, Fort Scratchley and Australia’s big Ugg boots at Mortel’s Sheepskin Factory in Thornton. If wine is not your forte, you may choose to spend the day on the beach at Port Stephens, just over a one hour’s drive away.

The Best Western Plus Hunter Gateway is ideally located for a break on route, either travelling to northern NSW or southbound to Sydney. We look forward to seeing you stop by soon!
