Campbell Rhododendron Gardens

The Entrance Gates are opened to vehicles from 9:00am all year round, and are locked at 6:00pm in spring and summer and at 4:00pm in autumn and winter. We are open at all times for pedestrian access, every day of the year.

Plan Your Visit

Everything you need to know.

There is always something to admire in the Gardens.  When the autumn leaves have fallen, the bare branches create a dramatic sculptural display against the various shades of greens throughout the bushland.

On sunny days, when the weather is cold, rug-up and stroll 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 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 pay our respects to Elders past and present, and emerging.

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.

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.

What we are working on now

With our FIVE-POINT-PLAN we've been very busy. rethinking and revamping parts of the Gardens since the 2019 fires...and we've planted more than 400 new Rhodos.  The project is a massive undertaking for our faithful volunteers—and expensive—so we appreciate your generous donations.  And maybe you'd consider joining our volunteers, the MonVols? 

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