The Hunter Valley Gardens are so gorgeous - a real credit to the caretakers. We went at "showtime" which was a fun time for the children, but really the gardens themselves stole the show. We will be back just to see them again!

The gardens are beautiful, so many differently designed gardens and well looked after. The storybook garden is great for kids. I think the gardens can be enjoyed by all ages.

Well worth a visit. It was raining intermittently but we still enjoyed our time there although we had to cut short our visit as we did not take raincoats or umbrellas. The Asian section and the lake were particularly lovely.
