CONCERTS & EVENTS 

Esta Cottage is also a great home base if you're coming to the Hunter for a major concert event held nearby venues such as Hope Estate, Roche Estate and Bimbadgen.  We recommend you book your tickets for coach pick-up / drop-off to Branxton via Rover Coaches for any main events and concerts and as an added bonus, Rover Coaches have kindly agreed to pick-up and drop-off Guests of Esta Cottage at the Branxton Pool, which is located just a 750m walk away.  It couldn't be any easier to get to your event, and then back home again to the comforts of Esta Cottage! 

You will be spoilt for choice as to how to spend your days, with as much or as little activity as you choose when Esta Cottage is your home away from home.
A day spent in the Hunter Valley wine region is an unforgettable experience.  A tip, you may just want to extend your stay to fit it all in!
