Our region has diverse landscapes including rainforests and wetlands. Agricultural activities include dryland and irrigated cropping, fodder, vineyards, beef and dairy cattle, sheep, alpacas and goats, horse breeding, poultry and aquaculture.
Hunter primary schools are encouraged to participate in the annual Binless Playground Day for one day during March to reduce waste and raise awareness about litter in our waterways and its effects on marine life.
