Top activities for the kids in the Hunter Valley
A Long Weekend or the school holidays can be the ideal time to get away to the Hunter Valley.
If you're travelling as a family it is always about finding that balance between wine tasting and keeping the kids entertained. Well, we've done all the hard work for you & put together a list of some of the kid friendly activities and locations in the Hunter Valley.
Don't forget that we love kids at Scarborough, so much so that we have a fabulous kids zone with games, a giant blackboard to get creative and lots of lovely grassed areas to keep your kids entertained while you enjoy a tasting. Check out which cellar door you would like to visit here.
And if you're looking for other activities that don't include chocolate, Easter egg hunts or face painting, check out our previous post of Top Things to do in the Hunter Valley - includes Putt Putt Golf, Horseriding, Cooking schools and Bike Riding - for the more mature family.
