About the Gardens

Soak up nature at its most stunning at Hunter Valley Gardens, built by Bill and Imelda Roche over four years with a dedicated team of over 40 landscape gardeners, architects and engineers.

On past trips, we have seen eight kilometres of walking paths winding through 14 hectares 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.

Hunter Valley Gardens is a beautiful, nature based, experience for local, national and international visitors.

And the Famous Christmas Lights

The annual Christmas Lights Spectacular transforms the gardens into a magical nighttime experience for young and old. There is incredible rides including the Ferris Wheel, Swing Chair, Carousel, Super Slide and Inflatable zones. The tasty food and beverage stalls will be available throughout the event.
