The Mega Creatures are returning to Hunter Valley Gardens this April!

The extraordinary journey will transport little paleontologists into a prehistoric realm teeming with dinosaurs, gigantic bugs, and mythical creatures.

A Jurassic Wonderland

From the towering T-Rex to the majestic Diplodocus, the gardens play host to an array of prehistoric giants, including newcomers such as the Wuerhosaurus and Huangyangosaurus.

But the adventure doesn’t stop there. Dragons Den beckons, offering visitors the chance to encounter mythical dragons, some of which breathe fire, igniting the imagination of young and old alike. Meanwhile, the Amphitheatre transforms into a captivating butterfly exhibition, showcasing intricately decorated butterflies crafted by local school children, each vying for the title of the crowd’s favourite.

An Enchanted Night Safari

As the sun sets, you can embark on the Mega Creatures Night Safari, where the prehistoric inhabitants come alive amidst dazzling lighting displays.

Traverse the winding paths and frog ponds, but beware as predators lurk in the shadows. Reptile Road unveils Hunter Valley Gardens’ collection of snakes and lizards, adding an extra layer of excitement to the magical journey.

For a bird’s-eye view of the spectacle, soar high on the Giant Ferris Wheel, offering panoramic vistas of the Gardens and a unique perspective of the dinosaurs from above.
