Hunter Valley Gardens


Our signature events are fun-filled and perfect for all ages, with visitors coming from across the region and all over the country. Our Christmas Lights Spectacular was the first event held at the Garden in 2007 and the Gardens now offers a family-friendly event every school holidays.

Snow Time in the Gardens, Mega Creatures and our Easter Hunt are popular with the young and young at heart. In 2019 we will be introducing a new school holiday event in September and of course, Christmas Lights Spectacular will be back bigger and better than ever. Our Horticulturalists prefer the Rose Spectacular and Spring Time in the Garden events, however, they’ve been known to throw a snowball or two when they think no one is looking!
