Hunter Valley Gardens
The Hunter Valley Gardens is a naturally beautiful venue in the heart of the Hunter Valley Wine Country.
Take a drive to The Gardens for a spectacular day trip or make it a mini break away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Gardens offer great dining options, beautiful garden views, shopping village and amazing events for families.
Soak up the stunning natural environment of The Gardens over eight kilometres of walking paths through 14 hectars of gardens consisting of over 6000 trees, 600,000 shrubs and over 1 million ground cover plants, plus waterfalls, statues, murals and much more. The ten individually themed gardens showcase the artistry of gardens around the world and use both native and exotic varieties of plants.
One of the family-favourites is The Storybook Garden. This magical garden features nursery rhyme characters such as Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill and Alice in Wonderland, to name a few.
The Gardens also transform with the seasons, adding a bit of Xmas snow in December, spectacular Christmas lights and Snow Time over the Winter months.
