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.

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.
