School Holidays in the Hunter Valley

With 4 young boys, Rachael and I understand what it can be like trying to find new school holiday activities to stimulate the kids and get them out and enjoy the world. Here is the Hunter Gleann review of family activities in the Hunter Valley.

Since we purchased Hunter Gleann Hunter Valley in Pokolbin we have been learning about wine, beer, cheese, olives and chocolate… Did I mention wine! One of the best things that we have found, family friendly places and activities available to enjoy these July School holidays.

Head out to the Hunter Valley Zoo where you can spend the day seeing and interacting with a host of different animals, birds and reptiles. The Zoo is a safe refuge for many species and the family can have the opportunity to get up and personal with these great critters.

Aqua golf and putt putt is located just near the Hunter Valley Gardens. Spend the afternoon chasing a ball with the kids.

After putt putt why not take a stroll around the Hunter Valley Gardens Shopping Village, have a meal and watch the kids play in the fully fenced playground.

The biggest attraction for the family these July school holidays is Snow in the Gardens in the Hunter Valley Gardens. The fun includes the snow play zone where the kids can play in the snow, build a snowman or a snow castle, let their imagination run wild. Try a little ice skating in the rink. How about jumping in the giant inner tube, go on the toboggan run and get a little air. There are also a host of other great rides, quality food and drink stands as well as the beautiful gardens and the story book garden for the kids. This is truly a full day activity.

A lot of Pokolbin wineries are family friendly providing activities for the children while you taste some of the Hunter’s finest.
