Set in 3000 acres of green valleys and ancient rain-forests which is populated with wallabies, reptiles and native birds; Glenworth Valley is one of the few riding establishments that allow experienced riders to explore alone. Guides and instructions are also available with a choice of over 200 horses. Riding costs differ according to the duration. There are private lessons too provided for the first-timers. Some of the other fun outdoor activities they offer are kayaking, fishing, team building and corporate activities, quad biking, holiday camps for schools, and bush walking. The camping facilities along the beautiful river bank is family friendly. They also help with the campsite equipments and organize it for you. With nature as the backdrop and animals for friends, all you need to do is just get your camping gear and food. For further information, you can check their website.
I travel to Newcastle for a holiday almost every year and each trip I make sure that I pay at least one visit to Glenworth Valley. It is a beautiful location and the feeling of freedom is worth the fee alone.
Horses generally are very good although my favourite of the last two years has been Gilligan, who is very co-operative.
Lots of wildlife to see including parrots that feed from trees by the ranch, and a crooked legged magpie that thinks it is a dog, and lies on it's back and lets you tickle it's tummy. Bizarre!!
Would thoroughly recommend a visit even if you don't wish to ride. It's lovely to just sit and chill out. Only complaint is the number of flies, but perhaps that is inevitable! Roger Lyon
