Lovedale – so much more than wine country

While Lovedale is, quite rightly regarded as one of the jewels in the crown of Hunter Valley wine country, there is so much more to see and do in this region that makes it the perfect escape for vino aficionados and those looking for something a little different.

Take it all in

Lovedale and surrounds boasts some of the most picturesque and breathtaking scenery you can imagine and there are plenty of ways to take it all in.

Why not take to the skies in a hot air balloon adventure thanks to providers such as Beyond Ballooning, Balloon Aloft or Balloon Safaris.

Those that prefer a bit more of a grounded experience can take in the sights on a trike courtesy of Hunter Trikes or even a meandering day out on horseback, thanks to Hunter Valley Horseriding.

Fun to the Fore!

Prefer to put a little swing in your escapes? Well you certainly can in Lovedale thanks to Hunter Valley Golf Course.

Situated in the stunning grounds of Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, this is an 18-hole championship course replete with premium facilities, impressive mountain range views and warm, friendly service.

The Par 71 course is nearly 6,000 metres long; with an expansive lake, rolling hills and tree-lined fairways adding to the course’s natural beauty, while providing an extra challenge for experienced golfers.

Get pampered

If you are looking for a little TLC on your Lovedale getaway, then head on over to the Ubika Spa at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley.

Ubika spa provides a  refreshing sanctuary surrounded by picturesque vineyards and golf greens, and framed by the rugged Brokenback Ranges.

Indulge in an extensive menu of rejuvenating massages, facials and hand, feet and body treatments. Spoil yourself with some well-deserved rest and relaxation in the Spa Sanctuary and V.I.P. Suites, which are perfect for couples as well as groups.
