Rothbury is a small locale in the Hunter Valley with a population of only 309. It’s quiet and idyllic but is surrounded by things to do, so there’s never a dull moment when staying with us.
Here I’ll give you a speedy look at all the things to do when you come to visit.
The Hunter Valley region is well known as being home to some of the best wineries in the world.
The Audrey Wilkinson Winery for their amazing views.
De Luliis Wines for their unique architecture, art gallery and the Cracked Pepper restaurant.
Krinklewood Vineyard is worth a visit to the husband and wife team who create a unique, tastes like it’s from the Hunter Valley wine. It’s also nestled deep in the Broke-Fordwich valley so the scenery is fantastic.
Air Ballooning – There are a number of operators in the area who can show you the best of the area while floating about the countryside in a balloon, which is pretty magnificent.
Horse Riding – There are guides on hand every day for both experienced and beginner level riders at Hunter Valley Horse Riding & Adventures at Hilltop. They also do pony rides for the young ones and a sunset tour for when the local wildlife starts to wake up and run around.
Glass blowing studio – The Ogishi Craft center has an attached glass blowing studio where even beginners to the art, (which would be most of us), can learn some simple glass blowing tricks and then wander around the craft center afterwards if they feel like getting their hands on a memento.
Golf – There’s a lot of golf here, a lot. If you like golf, come stay in Rothbury, trust me, there is almost too much golf in the surrounding area. The Vintage has a Greg Norman designed golf course and Stonebridge is an 18 hole championship level course. There’s more variety than that too, it’s excellent if you like golf. Play some golf. Do it.
Reflection Day Spa – There are a lot of day spas in the area, but a lot of them are connected to hotels, whereas I want something dedicated.
Hunter Valley Chocolate Company – Because chocolate is everyone’s best friend, and is relaxing. Eating artisan chocolate is even better than tucking into a block of Cadbury’s.
Bluetongue Brewery cafe – Because sometimes in wine country, you feel like a beer, and food. I think this is a pretty good staple of any trip, right?
There’s way more to do, but let’s face it you’re never going to manage a day of wine, golfing, ballooning, horse riding, chocolate, glass making and day spas in one go, so ship up here to Rothbury for a few days and soak in the relaxation.
