Family fun at the Hunter Valley Zoo

Hunter Valley Zoo

The Hunter Valley is world famous as a top class wine region, but it also plays host to a range of other attractions that go beyond the tipple. One of these awesome visits is the Hunter Valley Zoo, Nulkaba. Here, visitors have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of their favourite animals, including encounters with meerkats, lemurs, marmosets and the ever-adorable binturong!

Kids will absolutely love the opportunity to feed some of the zoo’s famous residents, including emus, kangaroos and a host of loveable farmyard animals. There are also daily talks with the likes of Australia’s most cuddly creature, the koala, among others.

The Hunter Valley Zoo is a memorable addition to any Hunter Valley itinerary, great to enjoy alongside these other amazing experiences in the region…

  • Sunrise hot air balloon ride

    If you’ve always wanted to fly high above rolling hills and gorgeous farmland then this the perfect opportunity. A sunrise hot air balloon ride is the perfect way to see the region’s incredible vineyards with a birds eye view. This may not be perfect for parents who have enjoyed a few too many of the valley’s world class wines just a few hours before, but, if you do brave the hangover and go for it, it’s truly refreshing, awe-inspiring experience.

  • Check out some child-friendly cellar doors

    There are plenty of child-friendly cellar doors in the Hunter Valley, with many providing activities for kids to enjoy while you, in turn, enjoy a fine wine tasting. Top child-friendly cellar doors include Calais Estate, which offers crafts and games in its very own kids corner, Gemelli Estate, which has a host of fun sporting activities and bambino gelati to top them off, as well as Margan Winery & Restaurant, which has complimentary lawn games for kids to occupy themselves with.

  • Enjoy fine food

    The Hunter Valley is not only one of Australia’s top wine regions, but it is also renowned for producing some of the country’s best bites, too. You can enjoy delightful local offerings at top class restaurants like Restaurant Botanica, Hunters Quarter, Goldfish Hunter Valley Restaurant and more.

  • Have fun on your family-friendly Hunter Valley sojourn

    The Hunter Valley is a family fun place as much as it is a wine lover’s idea of heaven. Have fun at the zoo and enjoy some of the other things that make this part of Australia so special for families.
