Horseriding in the tranquil countryside is popular, too. Hunter Valley Horse Riding in Rothbury and Chapman Valley Horse Riding in Singleton offer trail riding for beginners and experienced riders. For the complete rural experience, join Little Black Cow Farm Stay Tours on a working cattle farm.

A great way for the family to see the vineyards in Australia’s oldest wine region is on a bicycle. You can hire bicycles from Hunter Valley CyclingGrapemobile Bicycle Hire and Sutton Estate Electric Bike Hire. Another enjoytable option is a guided tour with Segway Tours Hunter Valley.

Take time out from exploring the vineyards for family fun at Hunter Valley Aqua Golf and Putt Putt, where you’ll have lots of laughs playing mini golf and hitting floating golf balls into a lake to win prizes. There are also indoor go kart tracks and GravityX, an indoor trampoline park.
