Spring Gardens of the Blue Mountains
Wander through the dramatic landscapes of New South Wales’ Blue Mountains, discovering some of the region’s finest private gardens in peak springtime bloom.
Visit a selection of private and botanical gardens, both big and small, in the highland towns of Leura and Mount Wilson, famous for their magnificent neighbourhood displays of vibrant cool-climate exotics including azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods and camellias, as well as flowering annuals, perennials and bulbs.
Enjoy a day in the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the town of Oberon, set amidst a mosaic of pine forests and rolling farmland, to visit the spectacular Mayfield Garden, a 65-hectare cool climate garden and the private Hawkins Family Garden alongside it. With daffodils abloom in the springtime, the stunning grounds combine innovative landscaping techniques with classic garden features.
