Hunter Valley Gardens was created by Bill and Imelda Roche over a period of four years, with a dedicated team of over 40 landscape gardeners, architects, and engineers. The completion of the Gardens realised a long-held ambition to build a garden that would be enjoyed for many generations to come. A garden which would bring joy and excitement into many lives.

There are eight kilometres of walking paths winding through 12 hectares of gardens consisting of over 6000 trees, 600,000 shrubs and over 1 million ground cover plants, plus waterfalls, statues, murals and much more. The ten individually themed gardens showcase the artistry of gardens around the world and use both native and exotic varieties of plants.

The Garden displays remain the focal point of Hunter Valley Gardens, however to enhance the visitor experiences our calendar includes horticultural talks, festivals and signature events, such as Snow Time and our Christmas Lights Spectacular. Plus, enjoy our beautiful new rides, imported from Italy and permanently installed in our event area, adding extra appeal for the young ones during our events and in the school holidays.

Hunter Valley Gardens is a beautiful, nature based, experience for local, national and international visitors.



The Vintry is a stunning architecturally designed Country House, luxuriously appointed with the quality furnishings and fittings but with the feel of a traditional bush retreat. A contemporary property with 4 spacious bedrooms includes 1 king size bedroom with hydrotherapy spa bath and 3 queen size bedrooms each with its own ensuite bathroom and private deck for those times when you would like some personal time to relax.
