DocumentsGarden Layout Map (2Mb)
The Campbell Rhododendron Gardens at Blackheath, about 120 kilometres west of Sydney, cover an area of 18.3 hectares (45 acres) and comprise both exotic plantings of rhododendrons, azaleas, maples and other deciduous trees and pristine native bushland. They are a place for the enjoyment of nature’s beauty and exuberance in her diversity.
Open all year round, the gardens are at their spectacular best in October and early November and also in April for the autumn colours.
The Lodge Tea Rooms are open from late September to early November for the best Aussie Cream Teas in the Blue Mountains! Come along for a ramble through the wonderful colour displays, take photos from the Lakeside Lookout to capture the stunning reflections in the Lake, and finish off with a cuppa and the most delicious scones with jam and cream.
