about us

founded in


Glenworth Valley first opened its doors as a tiny horse riding centre in 1969.

Word spread quickly about this beautiful oasis just one hour north of Sydney CBD and 15 minutes from Gosford. With 3000 acres of spectacular natural beauty and breath-taking views, it provided an experience like no other, where guests explored natural rainforests, unspoilt wilderness and splashed through refreshing creeks on horseback.

Due to the quality of the experiences we offer, Glenworth Valley grew from humble beginnings to become the largest horse-riding centre in the southern hemisphere where we now have over 200 horses on offer to choose from.

Over time, this 3rd generation family business evolved with the introduction of a variety of popular outdoor experiences such as abseiling, kayaking, laser-skirmish and quad- biking, plus a wide range of accommodation options from our 200 acre river front bush camping area through to glamping and deluxe eco-villas.

Soon, numerous mega celebrities such David Beckham, Kayne West, Cate Blanchet and Bill Gates would hear about these fantastic experiences and make their way towards the Central Coast to visit.
