HUNTER VALLEY GARDENS CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SPECTACULAR: What you need to know before you go

The Southern hemisphere’s largest lights display is back for the 2019 festive season. The Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular will light up the night from 8 November 2019 and run until 26 January 2020, and there’s plenty to get excited about.

THREE MILLION LIGHTS

You read that correctly… The Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular features over three million lights over 20 displays throughout the Gardens.

Two of the highlights are the eight-metre tall Mega Christmas tree and the White Christmas scene, where white treetops, a snow cave and arctic animals will transport them to a land far away.

For an extra magical touch, you can’t miss the new light tunnels, where you’ll be immersed in hundreds of lights.

A WORLD OF MEMORIES

The Around the World display is the perfect location to share moments with loved ones next to some of the world’s most famous landmarks; including new and improved Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Centre Point Tower, London Big Ben and Edinburgh Castle.

FOR THE KIDS

It’s straight to Santa’s enchanting workshop for the kids where they can write a letter to the North Pole and get a photo with Santa Claus himself, up until Christmas Eve (he goes on a well-deserved break after that).

Little Scallywagz will also be on hand to entertain the kids. They return this year with their Rock’n Elfy’s show. Jumping castles, thrill-seeking rides and inflatable zones will also keep the young ones entertained. Don’t miss the majestic Venetian Carousel, a Ferris Wheel which gives you a beautiful view of the gardens from above, the classic Swing Chair and a 35-metre Superslide to top off the fun.

FOR THE BIG KIDS

Lover’s Corner, a newly created experience for those who want to celebrate their love this merry season. Guests can take a stroll through a heart tunnel and enjoy a kiss under the mistletoe with their significant other. If you’re feeling particularly loved up, there are also proposal packages available to create the perfect moment for your bride or groom-to-be.

There’s also delicious food and beverage outlets to feast on while roaming performers, including carollers until Boxing Day, keeping you entertained

NEW YEAR’S EVE FIREWORKS

Be sure not to miss their famous fireworks display to be held on New Year’s Eve, it’s always a spectacular sight to see the Hunter Valley night sky light up.
