Adventure is Calling at Hunter Valley
When you say Hunter Valley, people usually think of vineyards and wines. As the oldest and most recognised wine region in the country, this is not a bit surprising. After all, this region produces top quality wines that can satisfy even the discriminating wine connoisseurs.
But aside from the wine tasting, the Hunter Valley also offers so many more adventures. From visiting the zoo to riding in the hot air balloon, to checking out art galleries, the Hunter Valley has something for everyone!
- When your kind of adventure calls for more action:
You can go hiking at Watagans National Park or Barrington Tops, or take a leisurely walk along Bather’s Way. You can also go kayaking at Wollemi National Park. Soar high up in a hot air balloon as you take in the breathtaking views of the Hunter Valley. Kids and grownups alike will also enjoy a local wildlife experience at the Hunter Valley Zoo. And those who enjoy golf, no matter what skill level, can tee off while enjoying the peaceful countryside, at several golf courses in the Hunter Valley.
- When you are craving the finer cultural experiences:
Maitland Regional Art Gallery houses artworks from celebrated Australian and international artists. Children will enjoy a special section of the gallery called Art Factory which features free art activities and workshops. You can also wander around Hunter Valley Gardens and the charming Historic Wollombi Village Walk.
- When you’ve had your fill of recreation and want relaxation:
The Hunter Valley boasts numerous luxury spas that are quite popular among the Sydneysiders. Whether alone, with your significant other, or with friends, there is always a spa treatment package that will cater to your desires.
Of course, as one of the best-known wine-producing regions in the country, don’t forget that trip to the vineyards!
