Mega Creatures at Hunter Valley Gardens

Autumn is a beautiful time of year to visit the Hunter Valley, and the renowned Hunter Valley Gardens is the perfect place to soak up the beauty of the season.

This April, Mega Creatures and a Mega Creatures Night Safari invite visitors to behold an incredible Jurassic world of dinosaurs, giant bugs and mythical creatures, plus enjoy rides, interactive fossil digs, amazing entertainment from Erth and giant animatronic animals.

Hunter Valley Gardens
Little ones will love the carnival rides!

Watch out for awe-inspiring stomping dinosaurs that roam the Gardens as you encounter life-sized mega creatures including T-Rex, Diplodocus, Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus, and Triceratops. Step back in time and discover Dino Land and come face to face with brand new pre-historic legends including Wuerhosaurus, Huangyangosaurus, Dilophosauru, Rhyothemis Fuliginosa Selys and plenty more.

Hunter Valley Gardens Amphitheatre has been taken over by an amazing butterfly exhibition and you can catch a glimpse of mythical beasts and flying creatures from a land before time in the Dragon's Den. Some even breathe fire!

As the sun sets at Hunter Valley Gardens, the Mega Creatures Night Safari will come alive with illuminated pre-historic creatures displays. The Gardens' collection of resident snakes and lizards will be on display after dark as they come out to play on Reptile Road in the magical Storybook Garden.

Carnival rides will also be alight in the glowing glory and visitors can grab a ride token and head over to the Carousel, Swing Chair, Giant Ferris Wheel, Tea Cup, or Superslide. There is no better way to see the dinosaurs than from the 25-metre-high Ferris Wheel that offers panoramic views of the Gardens.
