Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures

Watch 200 horses run free at sunset, glamp by the lake or cross creeks on a quad bike at this all-adventure playground.

One of the oldest buildings in the Central Coast — and its surrounding 3000-acre property — is home to an adventurer's playground of outdoor activities that's become something of a tourist hotspot over the years. Glenworth Valley is operated by the Lawler family, who own the sandstone house and expansive eucalypt forest and open pastures around it.

The Valley has dramatic rocky cliffs that you can abseil down, creeks you can quad bike across, and lakes you can kayak over. You can even book in a laser skirmish session, right before you bed down for the night in one of the site's glamping tents. But we think the real attraction here is the daily Running of the Horses. At 4.30pm every day, 200 horses run free through the paddocks and you can watch on (from a distance) as they gallop over creeks and live their best lives.
