With the New England Highway bypass completed, Scone Council’s major revitalisation plan for developing the largest town in the Upper Hunter Valley’s tourism industry and community growth has gone full steam ahead.
After the success of the Warbirds over Scone aviation show in 2018, a dedicated aircraft museum – the Warbird Aviation Attraction – will be built at Scone Regional Airport. As the only airport in the Upper Hunter Valley region facilitating medical services, fire fighting, aviation training and education in addition to commercial operations, Scone has also received approval for a new airport terminal.
Supporting the region’s international cattle industry and horse stud sales, Scone’s Livestock Selling Centre has had several upgrades. Focused on improving animal welfare, work health and safety the upgrades bring online auctioning capabilities to the saleyards.
Scone and its surrounds support over 70 horse breeding studs, and is home to Australia’s largest country racing carnival – The Scone Cup. Add to this the new state-of-the-art undercover arena, the White Park Equine Complex which is available for rodeos, dressage, cutting events, stock horse disciplines, team penning, pony club and concerts and it is little wonder Scone is known as the ‘Horse Capital of Australia’.
