ICE ICE BABY: Snow Time in the Garden hits the Hunter for School Holiday action

Hunter Valley Gardens will once again transform into a winter wonderland with the return of their coolest annual event, Snow Time in the Garden.

Kicking off on Saturday 25 June and running through until Sunday 24 July, Snow Time in the Garden is the perfect activity for both the adventurous and more sage members of the family.

The ice-skating rink, with a dedicated section for the little ones, is back. The 45-metre-long Ice Toboggan slope will be beckoning adrenaline seekers and the man-made Snow Play Zone will be ready for snow angels and snowball action.
