My son and my daughter-in-law recently used the Hunter Valley Gardens for their wedding. Everything was very carefully organised to ensure that this very special day went without any problems. The wedding ceremony went well but, once the ceremony was over was when things unravelled....More

For the cost of $30 most of the gardens during the day are littered with what looks to be an amazing night time light show. Unfortunately this ruins the aesthetic during the day. The storybook garden looks like it needs a touch up and the...More

The gardens have so much to offer regardless of age. The gardens them selves are beautiful and the shops associated with the gardens are quaint and lots of variety. This is great for a. Family day out.

Gorgeous gardens but way too expensive to visit with the family. Why there is a cover charge to visit a garden is beyond me. And then they charge you for activities within the garden?
