Escape to the Hunter Valley

Christmas School Holiday Activities

 

This year, Santa is taking a break during his busy period and stopping in with us at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. He’s asked us to host a few things for him to keep his elves entertained, so he can relax. We’ve decided that we couldn’t turn the fat man down so have planned a jam packed 5 week period full of all sorts, including Santa visits, Letters To Santa, Pool party, Twilight Markets, Pizza masterchef classes, Children’s wreath workshops, Unicorn dream catcher making, Science mad shows, and plenty more to keep the little ones (and Santa’s Elves) happy. Check out the events below to get all the information you need, as well as the day by day schedule, and make your Summer holiday a little easier with Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley Kid’s Club.

Santa Visit

You better watch out, you better not cry, better not pout, I’m telling you why. Santa Claus is comin’ to Crowne.

Join us on the afternoon of Christmas Eve as Santa makes his way around the resort waving, handing out lollies and wishing all children a Merry Christmas before jetting off with Rudolph and the gang for the most important of jobs.

Letters To Santa

Let Santa know what you’re doing this Christmas, who you’re spending it with, and where you will be with a specialsed note to the man in the big red suit himself so he knows exactly where to come to to drop your presents and eat your cookies. If you’re lucky, which all of you will be, Santa will write back with a personalised message as well. Image by Purple Heart Photography
