Sydney pulls out all the stops for a memorable Christmas every year with giant Christmas trees, glowing window displays and some truly magnificent light shows. Perhaps the most exciting of the lot is the Christmas Lights Spectacular at the Hunter Valley Gardens which is still delighting the young and old alike.
Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular
Get whisked away to a magical place with over 3 million dazzling lights on display. Open now until January 2023, the immersive displays are spread over 14 hectares of garden space.
The most picturesque holiday display in the Southern Hemisphere comes with a light sequence set to music, a massive bauble tree, Santa’s Cave — along with Santa and his little helpers making for some festive photo opportunities.
Crowd favourites like the 35-meter-long super slide and the giant walk-through bauble will also make a return along with the Ferris wheel if you want to enjoy the view from above. And in good news for both kids and adults, Paw Patrol, Cocomelon, and Sesame Street will all be returning.
The magic continues with Kids Carols singing every Saturday and Sunday in December along with the rocking elves performing their Christmas carols every Thursday and Friday. Bring in the new year in style with a stunning fireworks display on December 31 at 9pm.
Hunt for swing chairs, a traditional Venetian carousel, a 14m tall Christmas Tree, and spinning Teacups on-site. Looking to book a romantic getaway over the weekend? A glittering Lovers’ Tunnel has also been set up for a dreamy photo under the lights.
That’s not all. You can also look forward to hot chocolate, woodfire pizzas, dumplings, doughnuts, tacos, gelato and a lot more at the Hunter Valley Gardens’ varied food and beverage stalls.
This year, a combination of day-night tickets will be available with the entire garden open during the day and the beloved Christmas Lights Spectacular at night. Get in the spirit of Christmas and start planning your day trip to Hunter Valley. Get more info about the light displays here.
