Mount Tomah

While Mount Tomah has a Hawkesbury telephone area code. Mount Tomah is officially part of the Blue Mountains. The town is located on the Bells Line of Road just west of the town Berambing. Mount Tomah is a township with its own unique character.

While the Mountains were crossed by the famous explorers Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson in 1813, in 1804 another explorer George Caley set out via a different route. George Caley was a plant collector who reached a location in the Blue Mountains which he named ‘Fern Tree Hill’. This point was later named the township ‘Mount Tomah’.

Mount Tomah is only a small township, yet the town hosts one of the Blue Mountains' major tourist attractions, the ‘Mount Tomah Botanic Garden’, subtitled the cool climate garden of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney. Featuring over 5000 species of cool climate plants set on 28 hectares of land. The garden was opened to the public in 1987.
