Venture into the Hunter Valley Gardens during the October school holidays and discover a spectacular display of giants that will thrill both parents and children alike!
From September 29th to October 14th 2018, the annual Mega Creatures event returns to Hunter Valley Gardens showcasing some of Australia’s largest animatronic bugs, dinosaurs and dragons.
Get up close and personal with our infamous 8 metre T-rex, a giant Triceratops, the towering tarantula, a mega-sized snail and much more. Plus, we are delighted to introduce you to the new kids on the block – baby dinosaurs have arrived in the Gardens!
Kids of all ages will be delighted (or possibly terrified!) as they experience life-like sounds and movements of these giant dinosaurs, dragons and creepy crawlies. They may even learn a thing or two about our prehistoric friends.
Mega Creatures is a great fun-filled day out for the whole family - explore the amazing gardens, see the Mega Creatures and brave the Garden rides*!
