Aqua Golf and Putt Putt

Aqua Golf and Putt Putt

Oh the joy of smacking golf balls into water; it really is something else. It may not be that doable for younger children but it is definitely fun watching moms and dads try their hand at this sport. Pretty challenging but plenty fun, Aqua Golf is better suited for families with older children. When looking for nearby Hunter Valley hotels consider options such as Cypress Lakes Resort which is particularly convenient since it is located just 4 minutes by car. However the more popular sport for those looking for holistic family entertainment here is the game of Putt Putt. So long as they are over 4 you can teach them how it is done and in no time you will find them putting balls all over the place.

Finally treat the family with some delicious flavors at the ice creamery which really beats the typical Hunter Valley heat.
