Campbell Rhododendron Gardens

Plan Your Visit

Everything you need to know.


This winter, beautiful native shrubs such as Acacia and some Grevillea are in flower, whilst the deciduous trees—bare against the native bushland—create a sculptural splendour.  

On sunny days—and even when the weather is cold—it’s a wonderful place to stroll, rugged-up, with family and friends, or with your dogs (on leads).  We even provide doggie waste bags at the Entrance Kiosk near the blue-green Donation Box.

We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which the Gardens grow—the Dharug 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 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.
