Cheese heaven returns to the Hunter Valley for a second year this June.

Any time is a good time for a getaway in the Hunter Valley, though that statement is going to be particularly true this June. That's when the Cheese Lovers Festival returns for its second year, and you can try as much dairy as you can stomach for just $20 entry ($15 for early birds).

This cheesy, cheesy festival will showcase over 50 cheese, wine and craft beer stalls with tasting opportunities. Tasting opportunities. There's an amateur 'fancy cheesecake' competition, cheesemaking classes and workshops with White Rabbit Brewery to help you pair beer and cheese like a pro. This year there will also be the opportunity to attend a special dinner or lunch with a three-course cheesy menu designed by cheesemaker and founder of Bruny Island Cheese Company, Nick Haddow.

Basically, if you can't find a reason to make the trip, you're not looking hard enough. And that's just the official side of things. With more than 150 wineries in the area, taking a few detours is to be expected.
