Experiences

Check out what to do in the Hunter Valley these school holidays

The Hunter Valley is a playground for food and wine lovers with restaurants and cellar doors inviting guests to experience their offering in the most unique of ways. 

Not just catering to the adults, if you have little ones coming along for the ride, there is plenty to keep them occupied.

If you're looking for some weekend inspiration check out the list below. 

If you have been unwell, reside in, or have recently visited an area that has been identified as a  COVID-19 hot spot; please refrain from traveling to the Hunter Valley. It's also best to book ahead to ensure you don't miss out. For opening hours of individual businesses, health & safety requirements, and how to book, please contact the business directly.
