Amazing Display of Christmas Lights
A couple of years ago, I got excited when I saw an ad for Christmas Lights Spectacular in Hunter Valley Gardens. Since I love Christmas and anything sparkly, I knew I had to see it. I booked a hotel, packed up my son and we set off on our weekend adventure.

The great news is the Christmas Lights Spectacular tradition continues. This year's display promises to have over 1,500,000 Christmas lights which are going to be on show throughout designated areas of the Gardens.

Not only do you get to see amazing light displays but Santa will also be visiting. There will be entertainment, food and drink stalls as well as jumping castle and amusement rides.


7 November 2014 26 January 2015


Christmas Lights Display will be open from 7.30pm 10pm and food & drink stalls as well as roaming entertainments will start from 6.30pm.

Santa will also be available for photos from 6.30pm each evening between 7 November 24 December.


Cost is $25 for adults and $20 for children aged 4-15 years and family passes for 2 adults and 1 child are $60.

Alternatively if you wish to explore the gardens during the day (and I highly recommend you do), you can buy Day & Night Tickets for $44 for adults and $21 for children.

Tickets can be purchased online from Hunter Valley Gardens Website or at the door.
