Take A Ride
When was the last time you rode a ‘69 convertible to a vineyard?
You’ll find unique and exciting ways to explore the Hunter Valley’s wine country, from classic carriages to horse riding adventures, bike trails and hot air balloon excursions. Getting around the Hunter Valley vineyards is just part of the fun.
Let your hair down in a 1965 Ford Mustang or 1969 Ford Galaxy Convertible as you tour top cellar doors and distilleries with Mustang Memories and Mr Wilson’s Chauffeur Services. Personalised tours on a three-seater Oz Trike, or with Halls Private Transfers, Vineyard Shuttle Service and Tex Tours, also tailor visits to vineyard highlights.
For a bit of class, Hunter Valley Horses and Hunter Valley Classic Carriages offer wine tasting tours, horseback riding and romantic charters. Saddle up with Hunter Valley Horse Riding and Adventures for spectacular views of Hunter Valley wine country. You can also take a leisurely tractor ride!
A bike is another perfect way to explore. Cycle along private vineyard trails and quiet country laneways to boutique wineries with Grapemobile, who offer lunch options. Sutton Estate Electric Bike Hire offer motor assisted bikes, and you can even explore the vineyards by segway.
For family fun strap yourself into a feisty four-stroke go kart at Go Karts Hunter Valley, home to a massive 850-metre track. There are also Junior Go Karts, for those as young as three, as well as an archery range and putt-putt golf course, modelled on Bathurst’s Mount Panorama race track.
