WHAT’S ON – IGNITE THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS WITH OVER 1.25 MILLION LIGHTS AT HUNTER VALLEY GARDENS

Over 250,000 lights have been added to this year’s Christmas Lights Spectacular at Hunter Valley Gardens ensuring that the event, with over 1.25 million lights in total, will be the best yet! The Gardens will be filled with vibrant colour, incredible light and sound displays every night from Friday 9th November, 2012 until Saturday 26th January, 2013 (excluding Christmas Day and night).

In its sixth year, Christmas Lights Spectacular is the largest lights display in the Southern Hemisphere, making it a must see for the entire family and a great way to kick start that festive season.

The much anticipated event has won the prestigious Hunter Region Tourism Award for ‘Best Major Festival or Event’ for 2009, 2010 and 2011 earning it a place in the Hall of Fame within this category.

Hunter Valley Garden s General Manager, Kyle McKendry says, “This year will be bigger, brighter and better than previous years. We’ll have live entertainment for all ages, delicious food and wine and more Christmas lights than ever illuminating the Gardens.”

The Twelve Days of Christmas music and light display in the Border Garden, the cactus musical extravaganza and the three mega trees that are an incredible 12, 9 and 6 metres high are sure to amaze visitors. There are also light and music displays throughout the Storybook Garden and the greatest story ever told at the nativity scene.

Embrace the Christmas spirit with harmonious tunes, millions of glittering light displays showered across the spectacular grounds of Hunter Valley Gardens and jolly visits from Santa, (photos available).

  1. Its always a great happy news to hear at the Christmas time that the Hunter Valley Gardens is light up with over 1.25 million vibrant coloured lights… That would be a great venue for a memorable get-together on this beautiful Xmas party venue.
