Campbell Rhododendron Gardens

Plan Your Visit

Everything you need to know.


Autumn is yet another delight-filled season for photographers in the Gardens

Deciduous trees have been planted throughout our 18.3 hectares, and our Gardens’ Maple Grove is a wonderland of glowing yellowed and russet leaves.  When the leaves gradually change colour and fall to the ground, the remaining bare branches create a dramatic sculptural display against the various shades of greens throughout the bushland.

We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which the Gardens grow—the Darug and Gundungurra people—and pay our respects to their 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 a great deal of major restoration work ahead.  It's called the FIVE-POINT-PLAN.  We recognise this is a perfect opportunity to rethink and revamp parts of the Gardens.  However, 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.
