Spend Some Time on Horseback

Giddy up because Hunter Valley Horses offers both trail rides through the Hunter Valley bushland or whimsy-fuelled horse-drawn carriage wine tours. If you've got little kids, vineyard and bush trail rides are suitable for kids aged 10 and over, and horse-drawn carriage tours are suitable for families and will bring a touch of fairytale charm to your family holiday. If you're on an adults-only vacay, then just go all out with a horseback vineyard tour and picnic.
