Hunter Valley Gardens in Pokolbin celebrates the return of their coolest event these school holidays – Snow Time in the Garden.
Chill out with your kids at this winter wonderland from June 24 to July 23 with a month’s worth of amazing icy activities surrounded by beautiful display gardens.
Hunter Valley Gardens transforms into an icy adventure full of fun and frosty activities for children of all ages.
Spin round the ice on the Snow Time Ice Skating Rink.
There is a dedicated junior section giving the smallest members of the family a safe environment to enjoy their first taste of the ice.
Skaters aged six and over have their own space with lots of room to glide around.
Experience the super-fast Giant Ice Toboggan – once won’t be enough. Grab a tube and glide down the 45-metre ice slide, it’s sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
Man-made snow in the Mega Snow Play Zone makes this a must for kids who want to build snowmen, make a snow angel, or just get their fingers a little chilly. Or walk through the snow cave filled with delightful animatronic Arctic creatures including polar bears and penguins.
Hunter Valley Garden’s five incredible rides including the traditional Venetian Carousel, 25m Ferris wheel, super speedy Swing Chair, thrilling Superslide and twisty Teacups will be available for the thrill-seekers throughout Snow Time.
The ride ticket pricing is $6 per ticket or grab a bonus pack of six for $30.
