TAKE TO THE SKIES
If you’ve reached that point in your relationship where you think it’s time to take your love to new heights, then a ride in a hot-air balloon is the way to go!
Get a bird’s-eye view of the Hunter Valley while you Sip champagne and float gently over rolling hills and vineyards – it’s the ultimate romantic experience.
HOP ON A HORSE
If you’re looking for a more grounded adventure, grab your cowboy hat and hop on a horse for a guided ride through the countryside.
Nothing says “I love you” like a scenic horseback ride with stunning spectacular views in the Hunter Valley whilst riding over the Molly Morgan Range with Hunter Valley Horse Riding & Adventures.
FEED A MEERKAT
Keeping with the animal theme… How about sharing a romantic moment with your bae while you make friends with the coolest gang in town at Hunter Valley Zoo?
During a Meerkat Encounter at the zoo, you’ll sit down with the cutest creatures you’ve ever met, give them some food and can snap the ultimate Valentine’s Day photo all your friends will be jealous of.
DRINK SOME WINE
With so many wineries to choose from in the Hunter, this is the obvious choice for Valentine’s Day.
Sample a variety of delicious wines and find the perfect bottle to share over a candlelit dinner – Just make sure you pace yourself during the day so you make your dinner reservation.
You’ll need something to balance out all that wine you’ve just drunk, so why not pop into one of the many cheese producers dotted around the valley?
One of our favourites is Binnorie Dairy. You can do a cheese tasting and pick a favourite to take with you or just order one of their takeaway cheese boards and find a romantic picnic spot to enjoy it with the wine you just bought.
