“Nice layout, not too diverse in plants and tress”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We visited in August so still coming out of winter with few blooms. Nice layout and various gardens, but recommend visiting more when "in season". Storybook gardens was cute - but "weathered" and in need of be refreshed. Having just visited Vanduesen gardens in Vancouver there was no comparison - much better. It was a nice walkabout. Suggest lower entrance fees during off season.

“A must do while in the Hunter Valley region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Although this time of year had little in bloom, we could see how much care had been taken to create a piece of heaven in Pokolbin. We will have to return when the flowers are out.

“You'll want to stay all day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We've now visited the HVG four times and there's always something new. It's good for a slow stroll for mature ages or fun in the children's gardens (complete with fairy-tale characters) with grandchildren. There's lots to eat and drink and even some retail outlets for the necessities of life such as chocolate and wine. Allow at least half a day and you won't regret it.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Brilliant, didn't believe them when they said allow 3 hours. We were 3 and a half. Would be better in spring but the work put into this place is phenomenal.
