Daffodil Festival
This Winter we are celebrating all things nature, with amazing and immersive wildlife experiences at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah.

Come join us at our Daffodil Festival, get The Buzz on Native Bees or follow us on a Winter Bird Walk and Talk – all set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Blue Mountains.

The Garden will transform into golden hues this Winter with the Daffodil Festival. This amazing annual event is the perfect location for a picnic or Daffodil Discovery Walk, where our horticulturalist will help you discover this delightful winter spectacle.

Book into the hands-on Growing Bulbs workshop to learn cultivation and care tips and the secrets to bulb growing success. Stay on in the afternoon as Senior Horticulturist Mat Murray presents spectacular imagery from his recent expedition to the Taurus Mountains of Turkey in search of spring flowering bulbs.

Get back to nature with our popular Winter Bird Walk & Talk. Join Carol Probets on a stunning winter morning stroll, and learn all about the Garden’s beautiful bird life. Hear about bees and how they drive biodiversity and support food security with the Buzz on Native Bees workshop.
