Campbell Rhododendron Gardens

Plan Your Visit

Everything you need to know.

 

Suddenly it's SPRING, with a buzzing of bees and a blooming of a variety of buds all around the Gardens, preparing for spectacular colours to come. 

The Rhododendrons will be at their best from late-September to mid-November.  Sadly, we can't open our Rhodo Tea Room—but we will 'meet-and-greet', COVID-Safe, at the Information Kiosk from Friday 2nd October, and will be selling souvenirs and our 2021 Calendar (limited number this year, so hurry).

Watch for news about our Blackheath Chamber Music Festival from 23 to 26 April 2021.

The Entrance Gates are opened to Vehicles all year round from 9:00am and are locked at 6:00pm in Summer and 4:00pm in Winter. We are open at all times for Pedestrian access, every day of the year.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which the Gardens grow—the Dharug and Gundungurra people who have sung their songs, danced their dances, and told their stories here for thousands of generations—and we payour respects to Elders past and present, and emerging.

What to Expect in...

A 'must visit' site in the Blue Mountains.

The Campbell Rhododendron Gardens in Blackheath is one of the Blue Mountains' most favourite venues where, uniquely, Azalea and Rhododendrons are planted amongst the native eucalypts and bushland.

The Gardens are usually colourful and picturesque all year round, and the Management Committee, with the tireless help of volunteers, will work around the clock to restore the beauty to the fire-damaged landscape.  Please help generously where you can—with time, person-power and donations.

We Need Volunteers More Than Ever

Do you have skills?  Are you eager to help your community?  Become a Management Committee member, or join our Monday Gardens volunteers...affectionately called the MonVols.

Keep an eye open for our twice-yearly  Working Bee.

What we are working on now

Since the 2019 fires we have very busy with restoration work, called the FIVE-POINT-PLAN.  We have been rethinking and revamping parts of the Gardens...and we have more than 400 new Rhodos to plant.  The project is a massive undertaking for our faithful volunteers—and expensive—so we would appreciate your generous donations, and/or you also could join our volunteers, the MonVols. 

Just arrive on a Monday morning and we'll find you a task.  Hope to see you soon.
