I work for a travel wholesaler on Sydney's north shore and love photography, festivals & events, and travel, of course. My new passion is writing and I hope to inspire others. Visit my blog at www.travelwithirenke.blogspot.com
Discover the world of insects in this fun display
Venture to the Hunter Valley Gardens this school holidays for Australia's biggest display of animatronic bugs that include mega dragonflies, butterflies, ants, bees and spiders.
Only a 2 hour drive north of Sydney and the kids can be out in the fresh air getting exercise and enjoying these underworld creatures. They have even been given names, such as Marty the Giant 8-metre Praying Mantis and Sam the Snail.
There are dozens of these bugs' friends – a centipede, frogs, a ladybug, scorpion, caterpillar, and more. Wander through the gardens both day and night. You can combine this event with the Christmas Lights Spectacular and see both for the price of one.
Double the awesome
A range of entertainment, as well as food and beverage stalls, will keep the whole family immersed.
Facilities are good with an ATM onsite and an extensive gift shop.
Don't forget your camera.
