The Team

Overseeing Bells at Killcare, with their experience & understanding of regional tourism, are owner operators Brian and Karina Barry.

Karina Barry completed her training at The Regent of Sydney, the Savoy in London and the iconic Rockpool Restaurant, prior to moving to the Hunter Valley in 1991 as owner operator of The Hunter Resort with her brother. She was also one of the founders of the Bluetongue Brewery, (along with husband Brian Barry and a group of Hunter businessmen).

Brian Barry spent most of his career in sales and marketing within the wine industry, working with Brown Brothers, McWilliams and Orlando Wyndham. In 1998 he joined Karina’s family business to establish the Hunter Valley Wine School and run the wine side of the business.

Their vision, along with the team of dedicated leaders below, is to continually develop Bells at Killcare as a leading world class destination that is a true retreat, and one that reflects the team's passion for tourism and hospitality.
