It's snowing in the Hunter Valley!
This winter, Hunter Valley Gardens are celebrating the return of their coolest event – Snow Time in the Garden.
From 24 June to 23 July, Hunter Valley Gardens will transform into a winter wonderland with activities to delight all ages.
With Snow Time in the Garden falling over the winter school holidays, it’s a great opportunity to take the kids out and enjoy some frosty fun.
What can you expect at Snow Time in the Garden?
Take a spin around the ice at the Snow Time Ice Skating Rink. There’ll be plenty of space to glide around and test your skills on skates.
There’s even a dedicated section for kids aged 6 and younger so they can safely enjoy their first taste of the ice.
Want another taste of adrenaline? Have a blast as you ride on the Giant Ice Toboggan, a 45-metre ice slide that will have you coming back for more.
If you’re ready to chill out (pun intended), kick back in the Mega Snow Play Zone amongst the snow. Build snowmen or make a snow angel – just don’t forget your gloves!
Take a walk through the snow cave and discover animatronic Arctic creatures like polar bears and penguins.
Need to warm up? Hunter Valley Gardens’ five amusement rides will be running during Snow Time in the Gardens. Ride on the traditional Venetian Carousel, the 25-metre Ferris wheel, the super speedy Swing Chair, the thrilling Superslide and the twisty Teacups. The ride ticket pricing is $6 per ticket or grab a bonus pack of 6 for $30.
Plus, there will be a range of winter beverages and hearty winter food on sale to help keep you toasty.
The Hunter Valley is an easy day trip from Newcastle and Sydney, but there’s plenty of accommodation options on offer if you want to linger just a bit longer in this iconic region.
