Plan Your Visit
Everything you need to know.
There’s still an occasional cool nip in the air, but there’s also a buzzing of bees and a blooming of buds all around the Gardens…preparing for more wonderful things to come this springtime.
Azaleas, Rhododendrons, and other exotic species like Pieris, Weeping Flowering Cherry Trees, Lilacs and Forsythia, to name some, soon will be covered in blossoms of spectacular colours. Bring your camera to capture the pure-whites to sensational blood-reds, with striking yellows, pinks, purples and oranges in between.
The Gardens are at their best from late-September to mid-November. To have you enjoy your visit even more, for 5 weeks only, we open our Rhodo Tea Room at The Lodge at this time—and we’re told we serve the best Aussie Cream Teas in the Mountains. Check the dates on our website calendar so you don’t miss out.
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 Rhododendron blooms are at their spectacular best in spring, between early-October and late-November. However, the Gardens are picturesque and beautiful all year round.
