Get ready for the magnificent Blue Mountains Daffodil Festival, as tens of thousands of bulbs prepare to bloom for Spring.

The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mount Tomah is ready to burst into colour this Spring, as tens of thousands of flowers will bloom throughout the Garden as part of the upcoming bulb display from September to October.

The Daffodil Festival (24 August – 2 September) at the Blue Mountain Botanic Garden Mount Tomah is a highlight on the yearly calendar as it heralds the welcome arrival of Spring, and transforms the Garden into a sea of colour as tens of thousands of bulbs begin to bloom.

The Garden’s horticulturists have worked tirelessly, planting over 10,000 new bulbs this year to ensure a spectacular display this Spring. This includes 300 new species of African bulbs, many endangered species, and 120 new daffodil cultivars. These great new additions will mean that there will be tens of thousands of individual bulbs in the Garden’s collection.

“Spring is always one of the most popular times of year to see the Garden, and this year is certainly no exception,” said Greg Bourke, Curator at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah. “I would highly recommend the Brunet meadow, as we’ve added 10,000 new bulbs to that area alone.”

Visitors can experience the Daffodil Display at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah from the end of August to October. We have many exciting bookable activities to accompany, including a Daffodil Discovery Walk, Growing Bulb Workshop and a new Bulbs of the Taurus Mountains of Turkey talk with our Senior Horticulturalist, Mat Murray.

Spend a whole weekend amongst the flowers by visiting our Jungle Lodge.
