With over three million lights illuminating the gardens, Hunter Valley Gardens is the perfect place to escape with the family and make truly special memories these holidays.

Visitors will be dazzled by more than 20 new displays this year, in addition to previous crowd favourite installations that spread across 14 hectares of immaculate gardens.

Some of your favourite Christmas essentials are back better than ever.

Families can capture a moment next to the eight-metre-tall Mega Christmas tree, stroll along and take their little elves to visit Santa’s enchanting workshop, where there are several opportunities to say hello to Santa Claus himself, and have a photo with him at his six-metre-long sleigh.

Couples can again soak up the romantic energy in the Lover’s Corner, an experience created for those wanting to celebrate their love this festive season.

For the extra magical touch, don’t forget the popular light tunnels, where you can walk amidst the stars as you wander through hundreds of lights.

The Christmas Lights Spectacular is the ‘not-to-missed’ event for all ages.
