SNOW TIME IN THE GARDEN: The most fun you’ll have with your family this Winter

There’s a lot to love about an Aussie winter in the Hunter… Cold enough to bust out some winter fashion but light on the snow. Well, Hunter Valley Gardens have heard our cry for more snow and are setting up a winter wonderland this June.

Snow Time In The Garden is all the fun of the snow without the hassle of shovelling your way out of your driveway in the morning. And we think it’s the most fun you will have with your family this winter!

The event runs from 19 June – 18 July 2021 and it is a full day of entertainment for the whole family.

Snow playzone

If your kiddies have never touched snow (or if you haven’t for that matter) this is the place to start. This giant man-made snow play area is a perfect introduction to icy playtime. You can build a snowman, make some snow angels or just frolic in the snow like a Disney character in the middle of a ballad. But pack some warm layers…. It’s cold in here!

Ice skating

Whether you’re a novice wanting to try ice skating for the first time or you’re a bit of a pro, this massive Ice Rink has plenty of room to accommodate skaters of all levels. Skates and helmets are available when you get your session ticket and then you’re set to zoom around the ice rink like Steven Bradbury.

Snow Cave

Go on an arctic adventure! The Snow Time In The Garden Snow Cave is filled with animatronic Arctic creatures like Polar bears and penguins! Oh my!

Ice toboggan

Even your littlest adrenalin junkies will enjoy the super fast Ice Toboggan. Sitting snugly in your tube you can slide down the 45-metre ice slice and let the adrenaline rush take over. It’s too much fun to do once so be prepared to line back up to do it all over again.


All of the regular rides that the hunter valley gardens has to offer are still available. There are unlimited wristbands available for $20 or you can purchase individual rides for $6.

  • Enjoy the view from the top of the Ferris wheel, 25 metres from the ground
  • Join the tea party in their new Teacup ride
  • Fly 11 metres above the ground in the Swing chair
  • Take a ride on the traditional Venetian Carousel
