Easter at Hunter Valley Gardens

Easter is almost upon us again, and with the celebration falling in conjunction with school holidays this year, it’s a great time for getting out and exploring all the region has to offer.


There will be plenty to do across Hunter Valley Wine Country throughout the Easter long weekend, with some egg-cellent activities for the kids and a few tasty treats for mums and dads as well.

April is a beautiful time of year to visit the Hunter Valley Gardens, with clear sunny weather anticipated and plenty for the whole family to enjoy at Hunter Valley Gardens throughout the Easter long weekend (15 to 18 April).

This Easter the Gardens will once again play host to the largest annual Giant Easter Egg Hunt in the Hunter Valley. Kids will also enjoy a visit from the Easter Bunny, while Alice takes some time out from Wonderland to delight the young and young at heart. The Giant Easter Egg Hunt will run at 11am, 12noon, 1pm and 2pm, Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday only – so don’t miss out.

Put your detective skills to work and find the mysterious golden egg. There will be one each day to find hidden somewhere in the Gardens. Find it and win a Family Pass to Snow Time in the Garden.

A few more unusual eggs will also be on show at the Gardens this Easter, thanks to the Mega Creatures & Night Safari, which is running throughout the school holiday period. Spot a Stegosaurus, tiptoe past the Triceratops and try not to tremble at the sight of the giant T-Rex on your way to the rides.

For all the little thrill seekers, the Gardens famous rides will be operating throughout the event, including the Superslide, Swing Chair, Carousel, Ferris Wheel and Tea Cup Rides. Ride tickets are available from the ticket booth in the event area and are $5 per ride token, or you can purchase a bonus pack of 6 ride tokens for $25.

For more information and tickets, visit and have an Egg-cellent Easter!
