Exploring The Region By Helicopter
An excellent way that you can get a bird’s eye perspective of the Hunter Valley is to enjoy a spectacular helicopter ride to Hunter Valley from Sydney. You will get to explore in luxury and you will also have the opportunity to take some fantastic photos that will give you memories for a long time to come.

Breathtaking Views From A Balloon
Another excellent way to enjoy Hunter Valley from the air is to treat the family to the beautiful experience of a hot air balloon ride. You and the family can make an early start to enjoy the sunrise as you float over the spectacular scenery, or you can also opt for a sunset ride if you are not so much of an early bird. Treating the family to a balloon ride over the Hunter Valley will create fantastic memories for the entire family, and you will be able to get plenty of pictures as well.

As well as the garden there are also shops, places to eat, and rides and attractions that the entire family can enjoy.

Enjoy A Game Of Golf
If golf is a passion for you and your family, then you can also pay a visit to the prestigious Hunter Valley course designed by Greg Norman called The Vintage at Chateau Elan. There is also accommodation available suitable for families, and even spa facilities, so if some of your family members are not into golf, they can enjoy some pampering while you take in 18 holes.
