Walking Tours are hosted by knowledgeable and experienced guides and are available for groups with a maximum of 20 people per guide.
The tour takes 1 hour to complete and covers various aspects of the Gardens. A cost will be provided to you on application. Where possible it would be appreciated if bookings can be made at least one month in advance of your visit.
Visitors should bring a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent and a folding umbrella or raincoat.
Motorised Buggy Tours are available at an additional fee and are provided by their experienced Visitor Services staff. The 25-minute continuous tour is complete with a full commentary and is a very interesting and informative way to cover the full circuit of the Gardens.
Whilst viewing all areas of the Gardens, passengers are asked not to get on and off during the tour due to time constraints.
The buggies depart every 10 minutes and carry a maximum of 5 people each. They recommend that you arrive at the pick up point 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time.
Hire a bike and enjoy a casual ride through the Hunter Valley Vineyards.
Most people, golfers and non-golfers are aware that a driving range is a facility where they can practice their golf, it usually has one or more professionals teaching and golf balls that are supplied by the bucket to be hit and the golfer of course, doesn’t have to worry about the collection of them.
Aqua Golf is all of these but, with a unique twist! Instead of hitting the balls into a grass area they are hit into a lake.
Why a lake? The balls that we use are a floating golf ball and these are usually gathered by a breeze and blown into the floating fences where they are easily retrieved by someone in a boat. In addition, to make it more interesting, a number of floating targets have been placed in the lake that award a prize to any person who hits one of them.
In short, Aqua Golf is a driving range with an incentive. Our shop has a range of clubs that are available for those that do not have their own, these are free to use. All sizes are catered for, including left and right handed.
Aqua Golf allows for woods because the lake is 300 metres across, maybe not long enough for Tiger Woods but more than adequate for most!
For the more subdued, there is an 18-hole Putt Putt course in a lovely setting beside the lake.
It’s all here for a relaxing day - picnic facilities, BBQ’s, tables and entertainment.
