The Hunter Valley's biggest bonfire returns to Glandore Estate, get ready for Burning of the Barrel | 26 June
Held at Glandore Estate each year, Burning of the Barrel is the Bonfire of all Bonfires!
As the name suggests, ticket holders gather round to bear witness to a fiery inferno - around 75 tonnes of wood and one or two sacrificial wine barrels (empty of course) - which light up the night sky and warm up half the Hunter Valley.
With a roaring bonfire and great food and wine, Glandore Estate's annual Burning of the Barrel event is the kind of do you need to go to at least once but one you'll end up attending every year.
Named in the worldwide list of “Top 50 Wine Experiences” by Gourmet Wine Magazine this fire-gazing family-friendly event brings together everything we love about the Hunter Valley - delicious food, quality wine, entertainment, fire and loads of fireworks.
If you're planning on going, be sure to get your tickets early as they tend to sell out pretty fast.
Also, be sure to wear covered shoes and bring along a picnic rug. If you're driving, there's free onsite parking otherwise you can take advantage of the shuttle bus service that operates on the night. Tickets for this are sold separately.
