My partner and I spent several very enjoyable hours here in Spetember 2008 while staying on the nearby Central Coast. They are beautifully maintained and each themed garden is quite different from the one before. You do not have to be a garden lover to enjoy yourself here - neither of us are and we loved it, indeed it was the highlight of our trip!
We visited on a Friday and there were many other people there, incuding several coaches. However due to the sheer size of the gardens it seemed as though there were far fewer. Nonetheless I would not recommend visiting on a weekend as I am sure it would be crowded then.
We packed a picnic lunch and had it at the lovely picnic grounds behind the nearby Hunter Garden Village which I would also recommend. The food prices in the village are not what I would call cheap! Neither are drinks at Pokolbin Village - two small softdrinks cost us nearly $8.
Make sure you bring a camera, comfortable shoes and sunscreen!
