WHAT’S ON AT THE HUNTER VALLEY VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE IN AUGUST?
Join our friendly team at the Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre in August for some inspiration on things do during winter. Check out the range of Hunter Valley events which are very much centred around food, including Winter Feasts and Fireside Dining. We love the theme of feasts and fire!
UP, UP AND AWAY
This month the Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre has a special showcase of aviation activities with an in-centre display called “Up, Up and Away”. Our friendly team can’t wait to give you the inside scoop into hot air ballooning, helicopter joy flights and exhilarating jet rides!
Ballooning is a must do with passenger balloon flights operated locally, with excellent service and safety assured. Soar into the skyline in a helicopter charter and see the destination from the sky. The Hunter Valley also offers jet rides, skydiving and Biplane flights.
The Visitor Centre sits only a few hundred metres from the gateway terminal of Cessnock Airport, connecting you to a range of air activities you can book and enjoy right from Pokolbin. Drop into the Visitor Centre today to learn more about exciting scenic air adventures.
