We had a wedding and it was great to see how much work had gone in to the gardens. We loved the waterfalls and the fish.

This is a beautiful country garden that is themed by country and aromas that waft throughout the entire place. I proposed to my fiancé on the bridge on the Italian Grotto. I’d highly recommend a visit when in the Hunter Valley.
