History of the Gardens

Hunter Valley Gardens was created by Bill Roche over a period of four years, with a dedicated team of over 40 landscape gardeners, architects, and engineers. The completion of the Gardens realised a long-held ambition to build a garden that would be enjoyed for many generations to come. A garden which would bring joy and excitement into many lives.
