Don’t forget to bring a blanket to your Hunter Valley concert

The Hunter Valley is famous for its spectacular outdoor concerts and events. General admission ticket holders are advised to bring along a blanket to sit on, as chairs may not be brought into the general admission section. In case the weather turns, be sure to pack a poncho or rain jacket, available for purchase at our concierge desk.

Drop off the family pet at the Pet Resort

While Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley is unable to accommodate your four-legged friend, there’s no need to leave Fido at home. Drop him off to enjoy a holiday of his own at the nearby Pet Resort & Groom Parlour. Your pet will enjoy safe, hygienic, air-conditioned accommodation, with plenty of grassy space to run around. Drop by at 23 Government Rd, Cessnock to inspect the resort, or call +61 4991 3400 to make an enquiry.

Water Dragons Kids Club

Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley is the ideal place to spent quality time with your kids, with a range of family-friendly onsite dining options and recreational facilities. When you want time to yourself to enjoy a relaxing spa treatment or wine tasting session, take advantage of our fully supervised Kids Club. Run by experienced childcare professionals, kids aged 3 to 12 years will be entertained with a great range of games and activities. Book your morning or afternoon session at least 24 hours in advance.

Drink and don’t drive

Private, chauffeured wine tasting tours are available so you can drink without having to worry about getting behind the wheel. Choose from bus tours, private cars, horse and carriages, helicopters and more. Tours can be organised on arrival with our friendly concierge team.

Book in advance to avoid disappointment
