General King Valley Information

From the 26th November to 30th December 1824, explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell passed by and named what is now known as the King Valley, named after another explorer, Philip Parker King – the son of former NSW Governor Phillip King, who then explored most of Australia’s northern coastline.

Today, King Valley is now home to a thriving wine region.
