I have been to the Hunter Valley 3 times and managed to avoid this place on each occasion. Simply because I didn't feel it was worth $27 per person and not a huge fan of flowers and plants.

stepping into the Hunter Valley Gardens is like stepping into Narnia. It's like another world. Thoroughly enjoyed the Wedding Expo today with my partner. We got a lot of ideas for our upcoming wedding.

I recently visited the gardens and absolutely loved it. It's a good day out as it took me about 2 hours to see all if the gardens. Very peaceful and lots of photo opportunities. The shopping village is also very cute, lots to see and do and a great way to spend the day.
