Keep calm folks. Spring is coming. And aren’t we just a bit excited. Even more so to learn that the Hunter Valley Gardens are celebrating Spring this year with an all new event set to inspire, amaze and delight. Kicking off in the September/October school holidays, off the back of sold-out tours across Australia, the 360 ALLSTARS is bringing its super-charged urban circus to the Hunter Valley Gardens’, Carnival of Colour.
Who exactly are the 360 ALLSTARS? Think, world champion break-dancers, drummers, beatboxes and the world record holder of the Cyr Wheel (a large metal
acrobatic ring that a person spins and rolls in). Promising to make the kids, of all ages, go wild, there’ll also be a giant indoor ball cave with
20,000 odd colourful balls inside as well as the Garden’s regular rides – the super slide, swing chair, ferris wheel and carousel.
If this isn’t really your speed, the Gardens will also be welcoming back there ‘Spring Time in the Gardens’ celebration from the 1st – 30th of September. Mosey round the property and check out the Ornamental Plum trees and Cherry Blossoms on full display as well as huge arrangements of hanging florals, the avenue of parasols and Galaxy of Gnomes. The very talented Gardening team will also be hosting talks and walks during this time if you’re keen to learn more or, if like me, you’re in need of some gardening tips.
For the rose lovers out there, the annual ‘Rose Spectacular’ will also be held this year from the 12th of October. What is set to be a literal explosion of colour of fragrance, the Rose Spectacular will feature over 50 rose varieties, culminating in 35,000 rose bushes across the property, 6,000 of the those within the Rose Garden display itself.
