Here at Country Trails, we love showing our guests around the beautiful Hunter Valley. While the Hunter is a popular destination for private wine-tasting tours, that’s not all there is to this picturesque region! While you’re here, you can also take in the gorgeous Hunter Valley Gardens.
Set against the stunning Brokenback Range, the Hunter Valley Gardens offer over 60 acres of beautiful landscape gardens. Our guests love the spectacular variety offered by ten separate feature gardens, each carefully designed with its own distinct theme.
You might explore the gardens as you like over eight miles of walking paths, or hop on the train for a relaxing guided tour. Everybody can decide for themselves how to best enjoy this unique attraction. With Country Trails, you get the very best the Hunter Valley Gardens have to offer!
The central feature of the Hunter Valley Gardens is its selection of ten feature gardens, each creating a distinct and unique world. From the tranquility of the Oriental Garden and Chinese Moongate Garden, to the romance of the Lakes Walk and Rose Garden, the feature gardens offer something for every taste. Browse them all, or just relax while taking in the atmosphere in your personal favourite.
If you’re travelling with children, then the Storybook Garden is a must-see adventure. Filled with beloved nursery rhyme characters and beautiful storybook murals, this garden is perfect for the little ones. The kids will love exploring their favourite stories and taking photos with life-sized fairytale friends.
Throughout the year, the gardens also stage exciting events like outdoor concerts, school holiday programs, and seasonal attractions sure to entertain the whole family. Popular recurring attractions include the Mega Creatures dinosaur exhibit, Easter Holidays egg hunt and Snow Time winter playground.
Explore the Village
Surrounding the gardens is a boutique shopping village featuring a selection of local cafés, artworks and artisan crafts. With every shop owner-occupied, the village offers a great chance to sample local wares and take home unique souvenirs.
Not one for shopping? Then just relax and enjoy the village green, barbecue and picnic ground. With a cosy village atmosphere, it’s perfect for a lunch time picnic.
