Hunter Valley Gardens


The Oriental Garden is heavily influenced by Japanese and Korean gardens, and is a place of harmony, balance, and serenity.

This garden is precisely trimmed and manicured with natural curves to make it flow amidst its surroundings.

One of its main features is a two-story traditional Japanese pagoda surrounded by a Koi pond. Korean velvet grass or Zoysia Tenuifolia is also a highlight of the oriental garden, our planting is considered to be the largest planting in Australia. This unique no mow grass is slow growing and mounds itself around rocks and pavers to create a fine texture soft lawn.

A great site to view the Oriental Garden is from the top of the Italian Grotto, offering one of the most stunning vantage points in the entire Gardens.
