Conceived and developed by Roche Group, Hunter Valley Gardens was opened to the public in 2003. Spanning over 200 hectares, the key attractions of this multi award-winning property include The Mercure - Hunter Valley Gardens & Conference Centre, Harrigan’s Irish Pub & Accommodation, Roche Wines and Hunter Valley Gardens Village with a beautiful chapel available for weddings and other ceremonies.
The jewel in the crown however, is the 25 hectares of spectacular international display Gardens that amaze visitors year after year with sensational sights, colours, and fragrances of a standard not found elsewhere in Australia.
The themed Gardens allow visitors to take ‘a trip around the world’ as they explore each new garden. A lavish array of colour and perfume can be found in the magnificent Rose Garden, with more than eight thousand roses on display. The Oriental garden features a two-storey traditional pagoda surrounded by natural Australian granite. A 10-metre waterfall plummets into the Sunken Garden, while visitors step back in time with all their favourite fairytale characters in the Storybook Garden.
Over 8 kilometres of pathways meander around the grounds and over 100 kilometres of underground irrigation has been installed. Over the five years of development more than 6,000 trees, 600,000 shrubs and 1,000,000 ground covers were planted.
Hunter Valley Gardens offers two different styles of accommodation: The Mercure - Hunter Valley Gardens with 72 guestrooms and Harrigan’s Irish Pub & Accommodation with 48 guestrooms.
