As the temperature continues to drop and the school holidays approach, Winter is truly settling in on New South Wales. Along with the return of that cooler weather comes the much anticipated annual winter wonderland – Snow Time in the Garden, where you can experience the snow, without breaking the bank.

The month-long spectacular starts on 29th of June and runs until 28th of July, 2024 at Hunter Valley Gardens with activities and experiences that cater to all ages. Just a short drive from Sydney, it’s guaranteed fun for the whole family and also takes much less planning than a trip to the snowy mountains.

This winter, embrace the spirit by building a snowman in the Mega snow play zone, or go speeding down the 45-metre Giant Ice Toboggan. Refine your skills in the Ice-Skating Rink, suitable for beginner and experienced skaters. Experience all these wonders, which are all included in the price of the entry ticket.
