The magical Christmas Lights Spectacular returns in 2021
Get your friends and family together and experience the magic of Christmas in the Hunter Valley at Australia’s largest Christmas Lights display.
Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular returns from November 5th 2021 - January 26 2022, 5:30pm - 10:30pm each night.
With more than 3 million lights on display you can immerse yourself in spectacular Christmas themed light displays that includes popular Lovers Corner, ‘Hunter’ the giant teddy bear, Giant Castle, Around the World and much more…
In addition to the lights Hunter Valley Gardens is loaded with amusement rides* including those old school favourites; the tea cup, swing chair, superslide, ferris wheel, and Carousel.
Be sure to keep your eyes out for the roving entertainment, hearty food and beverages as you wander the gardens.
The event, which is more like a mini festival, holds a special place on many family calendars and is something we are especially excited about being able to celebrate this year. Whether you’re a regular Lights-goer though or have never been, the 2021 event won’t disappoint.
This year at the Lights Festival you can pop over to ‘Lovers Corner’ for a picture perfect moment under a tunnel of hearts. There is also the gigantic 'Snowy the Snowman' which is sure to be a hit with the kids - standing 8m tall, you will feel minuscule as you walk through his belly. And whilst we are on the subject of oversized lights, you can't miss the Giant Castle with a walk through tunnel and customary photo with Santa.
Hands down one of the best things about the Christmas Lights Spectacular however, is that it runs all through January, finishing on Australia Day, meaning you can visit a few times or schedule your visit for after the busy Christmas period. If you do get the opportunity to go before Christmas though, make sure you visit Santa’s Workshop.
With so many amazing displays, the Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular really is ‘where the magic happens'.
