Things to do in the Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley sprawls out in a patchwork quilt of vineyards, rolling fields, and lush scenery. It’s a popular hotspot for tourists in New South Wales and offers a whole load of things to see and do. It’s most famous as a wine-producing region, and there are plenty of wineries to tour and taste at. However, this isn’t the only thing you can get stuck into.

In fact, at the heart of the Valley there is a quaint village that boasts a cosy selection of shops, cafes, and fun things to do. So once you’ve had a wander around the village, soaking up the cute scenes, why not discover some of the great activities on offer?

Boutique Shopping

All throughout the village there is a collection of upmarket boutique shops that sell everything you could imagine, from designer clothes and handmade crafts to speciality wines and homeware goods. Dip in and out of the shops and pick up a souvenir or two as you go.

Cute Cafes

When you’re all shopped out, grab a table at one of the authentic cafes dotted throughout the village. Treat yourself to a delicious hot drink and a slice of cake to refuel. And, as you tuck into your mid-shopping snack, watch the world around you unfold in a flurry of colour and picturesque views.

Mouth-watering Restaurants

For lunch, be sure to check out one of the many delicious restaurants that pepper the village. Whether you’re looking for traditional, hearty Australian cuisine or international flavours, there’s something for you. The village is well-known for its top-notch selection of eateries, so take some time to explore all the menus and pick the perfect place.

Kick Back with a BBQ

If you’re look for an outdoor dining experience, then make use of the BBQ facilities and picnic areas in the village. Dotted amongst the lush, green scenery you’ll find secluded corners where you are free to cook up a storm with friends and family. This is a great, laidback way to enjoy the area, and a popular pursuit with families visiting the village.

Swing Some Mini Golf

Feeling a little active after all that eating and shopping? Good news! The village plays host to its own mini-golf course where you can soak up the Australian sunshine while having a laugh. This is a fun way for all the family to pass a few hours before dinner, so grab your club and get swinging.
