‘Spring is Mother Nature’s way of saying, let’s party!’ - Robin Williams. This Spring, Hunter Valley Gardens are bringing the party to visitors with three spectacular events set to inspire, amaze and delight, stretching over 70 days with something for everyone. This is one carnival not to be missed!
From September 1, enjoy Spring Time in the Gardens, a celebration of new foliage and flowers. The Gardens will look it’s bloomin’ best with an array of spring flowers on show, including the avenue of Ornamental Plums and Cherry Blossoms. They’ve added some pop, with beautiful spring displays and wheelbarrows crafted by the horticultural team, hanging floral baskets, an avenue of parasols and the Galaxy of Gnomes created by local schools in the region. Plus, there will be talks and walks with the talented Gardens team.
Once the school holidays arrive, not only will the Gardens be bursting with colour but they’ll also bring the beats! Fresh from sell-out Sydney and Adelaide shows, 360 Allstars is bringing its super-charged urban circus to the carnival. Boasting world champion break-dancers, Cyr wheel world record holder, drummer and beatboxer, 360 Allstars is a revolutionary performance that will thrill people of all ages. Plus, there will be a giant indoor ball cave featuring close to 20,000 colourful balls and the Gardens’ four incredible rides, including the Venetian carousel, 25m Ferris wheel, super speedy swing chair and giant slide for the thrillseekers throughout the school holidays.
Last but certainly not least, the Rose Spectacular will round out the Carnival of Colour. Visitors will be greeted by an incredible sensory explosion of colour and fragrance as they view 35,000 rose bushes across the property, with 6,000 inside the Rose Garden itself. Take a stroll around the gardens to see over 50 varieties of roses, with hundreds and thousands of blooms as part of the annual Rose Spectacular.
Carnival of Colour at Hunter Valley Gardens is an amazing and fun-filled family day out.
