About The Upper Hunter Region

Hunter Region

Scone is an important rural centre on the New England Highway in the Upper Hunter. It is known as 'The Horse Capital of Australia' and claims to be the second-largest horse breeding area in the world, after Kentucky in the United States.

The Hunter Region, also commonly known as the Hunter Valley has one of the largest river valleys on the NSW coast. The region is also home to cattle and sheep grazing, cereal cropping, dairies and boutique wineries. The town and the district have a large number of significant historic buildings and there is real pleasure in driving around the district and admiring the huge horse studs.
