This is a great set of lights which to me stand out among the magical Christmas lights at Hunter Valley Gardens. Visit the link.
The gardens are in the commodified Hunter valley vineyard province where it is just possible to need to be reminded you are still in this country. It is all so 'nice' and generic. The H V gardens can validly boast  a quality product - traditional, establishment and conservative at that.
The gardens are part of the Roche group who are into business and commerce and up-market residential waterfront developments. Around here they have Tempus Two Winery, Harrigans Irish Pub and Morriset Mega Markets. Roche have moved on from the Nutrimetrics Organization, which was once theirs according to their web site.
Events happen in the vineyards and people travel some distance to attend. I had been thinking how closer easier options are found in the existing entertainment venues and wedding venues, handy to our homebase but the fashion is to bring that element of the expedition to our weddings, parties and anything.
