The Hunter incorporates four very different cities – Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Maitland and Cessnock – each packed with plenty of fun for families. We have found the best things to do in the Hunter Valley with kids!
Just 2 hours north of Sydney, the Hunter Valley is an ideal family destination. Get back to nature, take in some culture and have a whole stack of fun.
While the Hunter Valley’s special grape juice might be the biggest lure for mum and dad, it’s not all about wine. There are myriad parks, playgrounds and reserves to explore, animals to pet at the Hunter Valley Zoo, and lots of cheese, chocolate and freshly made fudge to be devoured. Explore the region on horseback or Segway, or take to the sky in a hot air balloon.
