The ACF 2022 Conference will be held at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley 25th - 27th July Inclusive.

The Resort

With 100 acres to explore and enjoy, the 18 hole championship golf course set amongst the vineyards, tennis, basketball and the region’s largest heated pool, the Resort is your playground. Try your hand at volleyball, bocce, croquet, the gymnasium, giant chess and checkers or simply be pampered in the Ubika day spa.
The Hunter Valley is known for great food and wine. Our recipe for wholesome and delicious meals stems from three main ingredients; regionally sourced fresh produce, meticulous attention to detail and a sense of pride in what we create in the kitchen. We strive to support local producers and suppliers. Our Executive Chef sources the best seasonal ingredients from farmers and winemakers across the region and the state.
