There are just two weeks left to discover the world of Blue Mountains Botanica and learn about the journey from those that explored our unique region.

Blue Mountains Cultural Centre has partnered with the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust, Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah and the Leura Gardens Festival to celebrate spring in the Blue Mountains across three locations.

Blue Mountains City Art Gallery

Blue Mountains Botanica Exhibition – until Sunday 14 October, 2018.

Follow the journey of the first botanical explorers to the Blue Mountains and discover stunning historical plant specimen, botanical illustrations and archival records, which tell the story of the first attempts to document the unique plant world of the region.

Leura Gardens Festival

Enjoy spring in the Blue Mountains and immerse yourself further in all things botanical by visiting some of the most stunning and unique gardens in the region. The gardens of Leura are famous for their magnificent displays of azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods, camellias and other cool climate exotics, as well as flowering annuals, perennials and bulbs.

The 2018 Leura Gardens Festival will be held for six days over two long weekends:

Saturday 29 September – Monday 1 October 2018 (public holiday weekend) and Friday 5 – Sunday 7 October 2018. Gardens are open from 9:30am – 4:30pm daily. Visitors to the Leura Gardens Festival will receive discounted entry into Blue Mountains City Art Gallery. For more information go to the Leura Gardens Festival website.
