Snow Time at Hunter Valley Gardens was excellent, my little boy loved it, saw and played in the snow for the first time. It was excellent value with access to all the display gardens as well as all the Snow time activities. Looking at the faces of all the children they had so much fun - it's a great school holidays activity if your looking for something to do, but don't expect it to be Perisher, it's not!
What a great little place to visit! I have 3 kids under 10 and each one was so excited to spend the day at the "snow"
I'm so glad we visited while at the hunteras there's not much on for children in the area.
We have a 8 yo boy and 5 yo girl, and they loved it. I thought it was small and lame but the kids proved mevwrong, get in and have a good time as your only young once,as mentioned above its not Perisher but its really Cool for kids who haven't been to the snow, and do your family a favour and walk thru the Japanese Garden, absolutely beautiful.
