Event Description

Hunter Valley Gardens’ Christmas Lights Spectacular is back again for 2023, ready to brighten up your holiday season with more illuminating attractions than ever before! The Southern Hemisphere’s largest light display will kick off on Friday November 3rd and run through to January 2024, so visitors can make memories to a lifetime. With a wondrous 4 million lights on display this year, families can explore over 8 acres of breathtaking light displays, as well as enjoy the accompanying rides and performances, while grabbing a bite along the way.

As Australia’s biggest light display, the Christmas Lights Spectacular is the perfect mid-week or weekend escape – only 2.5 hours out of Sydney or just under an hour from Newcastle. Attendees and thrill seekers alike will be able to enjoy the traditional family favourites that have returned this year such as the spectacular 35-metre-long Superslide for the bold and daring, accompanied by an incredible Ferris Wheel for those who prefer to relax and soak up the view. The packed show program is ready to dazzle guests, including the wandering comedy and magic performers, or the ‘It’s a Grooving Christmas’ energetic live kids show. The full program is available to view on the Hunter Valley Gardens website program page.

This Christmas Lights Spectacular has the family holiday card sorted, with more photo opportunities than ever across the grounds, including with the 14-metre tall Christmas tree, or the giant 2.5-metre illuminated Santa. Families can also take a picture with Santa Claus at an additional cost to cap off all the fun.

If all this fun makes you hungry, feed the family with an abundance of food and beverage options available throughout the grounds, including woodfired pizza, burgers & chips and nachos. Have a sweet tooth? Enjoy family favourites including donuts, churros, fairy floss, ice-cream and even a cookie pizza!
