The Hunter Region Botanic Gardens cover an area of more than 130 hectares, much of which has been preserved as natural bushland.
To welcome visitors, the Gardens have a Visitor Centre, cafe, gift shop and reference library. Devonshire teas and light lunches are served daily, or visitors can picnic in the Gardens. Walks and excursions are organised regularly, and there is a program of special events.
walking trails provide access to the natural bushland with its mature
blackbutt, angophoras and swamp mahogany forests and its understorey of
more than 150 native plants. Their forests are the natural habitat of
goannas, wallabies, lizards, brushtail and ringtail possums, sugar
gliders, bats, a small group of resident koalas and many birds.
